The Football Association says it has come across "suspicious betting activity" on a number of matches played in the Football Conference South.

The FA said it is assessing evidence with the help of the Gambling Commission’s Sports Betting Intelligence Unit, and had contacted all clubs in the league.

It reminded players and officials of their "responsibilities under betting and integrity rules" and called for people with information about "possible breaches" of the rules to come forward.

The Football Conference South is the sixth tier of English football, sitting two divisions below the Football League.
