A FOOTBALLER from Croydon has been found guilty of conspiring to fix matches. Michael Boateng, 22, of Davidson Road, was convicted of conspiracy to commit bribery today at Birmingham Crown Court. He was found guilty, along with Singaporean businessmen Chann Sankaran, 33, and Krishna Sanjey Ganeshan, 43, of attempting to fix a League 2 match between AFC Wimbledon and Dagenham and Redbridge on November 26. Jurors are still deliberating over a single charge of conspiracy to offer, promise or give a financial advantage in relation to former Crystal Palace youth player Moses Swaibu, 25, a former Archbishop Lanfranc pupil. Hakeem Adelakun, another former Palace youth player, of Thornton Heath, was cleared of the same charges and had told the jury he knew nothing about any plot to fix matches. Boateng and Mr Swaibu last played for Brighton-based Whitehawk FC. The court heard how Sankaran and Ganeshan were "central" to the scam but that Boateng was a "willing recruit".
