"Yesterday afternoon I learned that a national newspaper was running a story today linking St Pat's players with allegations of betting on two of our fixtures this season.
I informed Fran Gavin, Director of the eircom league of Ireland that I would be looking into the matter, and sought advice from the local Gardai.
While I would expect and hope there would be no truth behind such unsubstantiated rumours, I felt it would be irresponsible not to investigate the matter further.
I informed the playing squad of these allegations yesterday evening and we will be seeking the full co-operation of the FAI in our effort to discover if any of our players were involved" - Richard Sadlier.
