Athlone duo have match-fixing appels denied

The FAI have rejected the appeals of two former Athlone players in relation to match-fixing.

Igors Labuts and Dragos Sfrijan have been banned for 12 months for breaking three association rules.

The incidents arose in Athlone's First Division game with Longford in April of last year.

Both players left the club at the end of last season.
