A statement relased on thefa.com says: The FA and the Gambling Commission have become aware of suspicious betting activity on a number of matches played in the Football Conference South.
Following recent communications with the Gambling Commission, The FA, in conjunction with the Football Conference, is contacting all clubs playing in the Football Conference South to advise them immediately of our concern about this suspicious betting activity.
Clubs have also been asked to remind their players and officials of their responsibilities under the betting and integrity rules of The FA.
Anyone with any information regarding possible breaches of these rules has been advised to come forward to The FA or to the Gambling Commission.
In the meantime, we are continuing to work together with the Gambling Commission’s Sports Betting Intelligence Unit in further assessing the evidence regarding these suspicious betting patterns.
The FA will be making no further comment on this matter.
