A Suffolk man had admitted defrauding a sports and social club by almost £27,000.
Leon Studd pleaded guilty to fraud by abuse of position at South East Suffolk Magistrates’ Court, in Ipswich, on Monday.
The 39-year-old gained £26,986.05 while occupying the role of treasurer for Sproughton and District Sports and Social Club.
The offence took place over a five-year period between January 1, 2012, and May 31, 2017.
Studd, of Leggatt Drive, Bramford, spoke only to confirm his name, address, date of birth, nationality, and to enter a guilty plea, which prosecutor Simon Bravery described as a “sustained milking of the accounts”.

Duty solicitor Lyndon Davies made no representations for Studd, whose sentence will be passed down by a judge at crown court on a date to be confirmed.
He was released on unconditional bail.
