Peterborough director of football Barry Fry has been charged with misconduct in relation to betting, the Football Association has announced.

A statement from the FA read: "It is alleged that he placed bets on the result, progress, conduct or any other aspect of, or occurrence in, football matches or competitions during the 2017/18 season in breach of FA Rule E8.

"He has until 6pm on 20 December 2018 to respond to the charge."

The 73 year-old has been director of football at the Sky Bet League One club for over a decade after previously being manager at London Road for just under 10 years.

The larger-than-life character began his playing career as a youth team member at Manchester United but never played a first team game and spent most of his time in the non-league game.

But it is as a manager where he has risen to prominence during two spells with Barnet as well as stints at Southend, Birmingham and Peterborough.
