and live on Freeview channel 276
An FA statement, which appeared on the @FAspokesperson X account yesterday, said it was alleged McMahon had breached FA Rule E1(b) by betting on football matches 251 times between November 30, 2019 and October 14, 2023.
McMahon, who has only recently returned to the Mazuma Mobile Stadium after a period of absence following surgery in December, has until today to respond.
In response, Morecambe issued a brief statement acknowledging the situation.
It said: “Morecambe Football Club acknowledges the FA’s statement regarding the charge made against John McMahon.
“As this is an ongoing matter, we will be making no further comment at this time.”
The news was announced 24 hours after the postponement of Morecambe’s trip to Walsall on Tuesday because of a waterlogged pitch.
That has now been rearranged for Tuesday, February 20 (7.45pm).
