Pearson: A Storm In A Tea Cup

Adam Pearson, Derby's chairman of football, believes the fact that two bodies investigation the alledged match-fixing involving Derby found nothing irregular shows the situation was nothing more than 'a storm in a tea cup.'

The European Sports Security Association (ESSA) and the Association of British Bookmakers (ABB) don't suspect anything inappropriate took place, after the claims of irregular betting during our win over Norwich.

'After a thorough investigation, I'm pleased to report that none of our members found anything unusual about the game.

'Our association comprises the leading online sports book operators in Europe and, along with the ABB, who are an associate member, we are working together to contribute to sports being clean and free of corruption.'

Khalid Ali, the secretary general of ESSA, was commenting in a statement released.

This led to Pearson making his 'storm in a tea cup comment', although the FA will still investigate the matter.

'It is a clear sign that this matter is a complete storm in a tea cup.

'As all the betting agencies follow suit in giving clearance, people will be left with egg on their faces.

'The FA now have to investigate and that could take some time but we are confident in the outcome of this matter and that a line will be drawn under it. We just hope that happens as soon as possible.'

Pearson was talking to the Evening Telegraph.
