Nose-bite rethink
Story courtesy of Burton Mail
Gresley Rovers goalkeepers Bob Aston, the man at the centre of the notorious nose-biting incident, has earned a stay of execution on his 56-day suspension.
Aston failed to win his appeal against the ban but Staffordshire FA officials have agreed to reopen the case in the light of new evidence.

The Stoke based player was suspended after an alleged incident at the end of a game between Eastwood Hanley his previous club and Leek Town.
