Non-League Chairman Accuses FA of Inaction Over Match Fixing

Non-League Chairman Accuses FA of Inaction Over Match Fixing

The chairman of Billericay Town, Steve Kent, has called for a ban on betting on non-league level football matches. Kent said, “If we ban betting at our level and the Asian market can’t get the UK betting feeds, then it doesn’t lay on the game. And if there is no betting, then our games will remain clean.”

Non-League Chairman Accuses FA of Inaction Over Match Fixing

Billericay Town chairman, Steve Kent, has attacked the FA for not doing enough following the match fixing scandal.

Kent went on to criticise the Football Association and said that it has not held a proper inquiry into events last season when at one point two bookmakers were refusing to take bets on games involving Conference South teams Hornchurch, Chelmsford and Billericay.

Three former players from Hornchurch have been arrested and charged with match-fixing offences since they moved to the Australian side Melbourne All-Stars. Furthermore, a Conference South game between Billericay and Welling reportedly attracted hundreds of thousands of bets, mainly from the Asian market.

However, despite Kent’s, and other chairmen’s’ anger at the FA, the FA is reportedly happy with how it handled the situation and has no plans to take any further action.
