Irish amateur snooker player John Sutton, 34, has been banned for six years after the sport's world governing body found him guilty of match-fixing and misusing inside information.

The World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association said Sutton's offences related to suspicious betting on his match against Scotland's Jamie Burnett in the qualifying stages of the 2014 International Championship. Burnett won through 6-0, but there is no suggestion Burnett was at fault.
