Yeovil Town player Jordan Barnett has been charged by the Football Association with regards to betting on football matches.

According to the FA’s April Charges, Barnett is alleged to have place “138 bets” on football matches from December 2018 to 10th January 2022.

The full charge reads as follows:

“INCIDENT OF MISCONDUCT IN RELATION TO BETTING
Jordan Barnett, Player, Yeovil Town FC

Breach of FA Rule E8 – Misconduct in respect of 138 bets placed on football matches between 02 December 2018 to 10 January 2022.

The Participant has until 12 May 2022 to provide a response.” 

There is nothing more, and nothing to suggest it involves any matches including Yeovil.

Barnett signed for the Glovers in Summer 2021 from Notts County where he made 12 appearances. 

There are strict FA rules with regards to betting on football, which can read here if you feel like it.

A statement from the club reads: “Yeovil Town can confirm that a member of the first team squad is under investigation for an incident of misconduct in relation to betting. Due to an ongoing investigation into the matter, the club cannot comment any further.”
