Former Whitehawk FC footballer Moses Swaibu is due to appear in court charged with match-fixing today (Friday 19 September).

Swaibu, 25, of Tooley Street, in Bermondsey, London, is scheduled to appear before a judge at Birmingham Crown Court.

He is accused of conspiring to commit bribery and was arrested after an investigation by the National Crime Agency.

The former Bolton Wanderers striker Delroy Facey, 34, from Huddersfield, was also charged with conspiracy to commit bribery earlier this month after a National Crime Agency inquiry.

In June former Whitehawk player Michael Boateng, 23, of Davidson Road, Croydon, was jailed for 16 months for his role in a match-fixing plot.

Another ex-Whitehawk footballer, Hakeem Adelakun, 23, of Mayfield Crescent, Thornton Heath, was cleared of bribery by the same jury.

The players are no longer with the East Brighton club and it is not suggested that any Whitehawk matches were affected.

In the same case two Singaporean men, Krishna Ganeshan and Chann Sankaran, were both sent to prison for five years by Judge Melbourne Inman at Birmingham Crown Court.
