GARETH McGLYNN'S ban for gambling on League of Ireland matches has been reduced from two months to one by the FAI Appeal Committee.

The Bohemians winger was one of three people involved with Derry City last year who breached Rule 100 of the league guidelines -- striker Sammy Morrow and backroom staff member Colum O'Neill were also sanctioned.

McGlynn felt harshly done by as his indiscretions related to games not involving the Candystripes. That was the main basis of his appeal but, in also reducing O'Neill's ban to one month, the FAI remained steadfast in their ruling that both were equally guilty.

Morrow, now playing in the Irish League, was banned for three months by FIFA.

McGlynn, whose suspension begins today, will miss at least five Premier Division matches, including key meetings with St Patrick's Athletic and Shamrock Rovers.
