Eastleigh Football Club can today confirm that Kenny Amor has stepped down from his role as Chairman, and has also resigned from the Board of Directors, with immediate effect.

Following an FA investigation regarding a potential breach of betting rules, it has unfortunately become clear that his position has become untenable. The Club is currently awaiting the full outcome of this investigation

Eastleigh Football Club is fully aware of the rules surrounding football betting. These rules exist to help protect the integrity of the game. They apply to everyone involved in football, from players and managers, to club staff and Directors.  

An internal notice has been sent to all employees to remind them of these rules, and to ensure they understand their own responsibilities.

The Board of Directors can confirm that Tom Coffey will now assume the Chairman’s role and continue the day-to-day running of the Club.

Tom Coffey has issued the following statement:

“At this time I would like to assure supporters that the Club remains in a strong position off the field and we are continuing to prepare for the upcoming Vanarama National League campaign.

“We are continuing to build a competitive squad to make sure that we are ready for a successful season, which commences on the 6th of August. Our focus will always remain the same, in progressing the Football Club forwards both on and off the pitch.”

The club will make no further comment on the matter at this time.
