Former Bromley footballer Blair Turgott, accused of gambling £16,000 using a stolen card, has been found not guilty.
Turgott faced a retrial on one charge after a jury failed to reach verdicts on two charges – fraud and converting criminal property.
The ex-West Ham winger who is now signed to Maidstone was cleared of converting criminal property.
Mr Turgott, 23, from Bromley, south east London, was not retried on the fraud charge at Southwark Crown Court.
Prosecutors asked for the charge to lie on file.
