Wycombe footballer suspended after placing 183 bets

Kashket lost a total of £1,067.75 and won £946.13 with the latter sum added to the initial £2,500 FA fine.It is reported that of Kashket’s 183 bets, 65 were in competitions that Leyton Orient were taking part in, with 19 matches featuring the team, among them 10 betting against his side.Scott Kashket stated: “I regret my actions and will learn from the experience to improve myself both as a person and a player. I am thankful to Wycombe Wanderers for their ongoing support and am determined to come back stronger in two months’ time.”The independent regulatory commission assured that he did not play in any matches he placed a bet on, whilst also adding that there is no suggestion of using ‘inside information’ or match-fixing.The club stated: “Wycombe Wanderers continues to offer its full support to Scott, and while the club does not condone rule breaches of this nature, it recognises that the charge relates entirely to a difficult period in Scott’s career at his previous club Leyton Orient.”The sanctioning also includes a possible extended suspension if the player further breaches FA’s betting rules.Rob Couhig, the prospective majority shareholder at Wycombe Wanderers, has concluded: “I have found Scott to be a first-rate person and, while this is not an excuse for his actions, the treatment he sustained at Leyton Orient – under their previous ownership structure – was unconscionable.“I am glad he has taken personal responsibility for his actions, and that Leyton Orient are under new progressive ownership and leadership. We now look forward to drawing a line under the situation and having Scott fully fit and refreshed for the final few weeks of the season.”Couhig is referring to reported ownership issues and Leyton Orients’ financial crisis under Francesco Becchetti, when Kashket was playing for the side. Both the club and the player, in the same statement, announced that they will not appeal the decision.last_img read more
