The board and the management committee of Athlone Town AFC are absolutely shocked by the contents of documentation forwarded to us by the FAI and UEFA concerning out recent First Division game against Longford Town.
The club absolutely abhors match fixing and would never knowingly get involved in such unacceptable activity.
The club will be fully co-operating with those conducting the investigation, and look forward to meeting with FAI officials next week.
Should any of the allegations be upheld the club will take action against any wrongdoers.
The club will not be commenting any further on the matter until the investigation has been completed.
