THE Football Association (FA) has written to Weston Football Club about possible match-fixing in its league.
The Seagulls and the other 21 Blue Square South sides were contacted by the FA this week, amid concerns of suspicious betting patches.
The FA issued a statement saying it will work with the Gambling Commission’s Sports Betting Intelligence Unit to investigate the claims.
No particular clubs or matches have been named as under investigation.
However, two betting firms reportedly stopped taking bets on some matches last weekend. Weston’s game at Basingstoke Town – which was postponed – was not one of the games involved.
