Scott receives FA ban

Club offers full support to striker.

24 January 2020

A commission investigating betting activity by Scott Kashket between the period of September 2014-August 2016 has ruled that the striker should serve a two-month ban from all football activity - with four additional months suspended - effective as of Tuesday 21st January.

The club and player have decided not to appeal the decision.

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.

Rob Couhig, prospective majority shareholder at Wycombe Wanderers, said: “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.”

Scott Kashket said: “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.”

There will be no further comment on the matter.
