The board and the management committee of Athlone AFC are disappointed with the Fai’s decision to bring charges against members of the club as part of the investigation into alleged match fixing.
It is important to note that no finding has been made against the club itself, something which Athlone Town AFC welcomes.
In recent hours the club has received documentation from the Fai detailing the charges it has brought against certain individuals.
Athlone Town AFC’s board is currently in the process of assessing that material. A further statement will be released after the basis of the charges have been fully examined.
The club also awaits the production of all the evidence related to the allegations the individuals have been charged with from the FAI in advance of the disciplinary hearings scheduled to be heard by an Independent panel in early August.
The club would like to remind the public and the media that everyone at Athlone Town AFC denies being involved in match fixing/match manipulation of any sort.
At this point in time no finding of wrongdoing has been made against any coach, player or official at the club.
