WEST BROM loan manager Paul Terry faces a heavy fine and potential ban after being charged with multiple breaches of FA betting regulations.
Terry, brother of Aston Villa assistant manager and former England and Chelsea skipper John, is accused of placing 209 bets between November 2017 and October 2019.
Terry , 41, was charged last week under FA Rule E8.
He has until next Tuesday to respond to the allegations.
Rule E8 is effectively a blanket ban on betting, applying to all participants in professional football.
It states: “A participant should not bet, either directly or indirectly, or instruct, permit, cause or enable any person to bet on the result, progress, conduct or any other aspect of …a football match or competition.”
The case will be dealt with by an independent FA commission which has unlimited powers.
However, it is expected that Terry is more likely to face a substantial fine than a ban if he is found guilty.
That is because he has no active involvement in matches at West Brom.
Terry joined Premier League side West Brom in July 2019 to keep an eye on the development of players leaving on loan.
He played professionally for the likes of Dagenham & Redbridge, Yeovil, Leyton Orient and Darlington.
Terry retired as a player in 2012 and began working as an agent.
He had coaching stints at Yeovil and Oldham before heading to the Baggies.
