LONDON (AFP) - Two Singaporean businessmen and a footballer were found guilty on Tuesday of involvement in a match-fixing conspiracy targeting English lower league games.

Businessmen Chann Sankaran, 33, and Krishna Ganeshan, 44, were convicted of conspiracy to commit bribery by a unanimous jury decision at Birmingham Crown Court in central England.

Michael Boateng, 22, a former defender with sixth-tier side Whitehawk FC, was also convicted of the same offence.

Jurors cleared fellow former Whitehawk player Hakeem Adelakun of the same charge.
