LONDON (AP) — Britain’s National Crime Agency has charged a third footballer as part of a match-fixing investigation involving non-league players.

Moses Swaibu, who played in the sixth-tier Conference South, was charged Friday with conspiracy to defraud as part of the probe into an alleged international illegal betting syndicate.

He was released on bail and will appear in court on Tuesday.

Michael Boateng and Hakeem Adelakun, who both play for Conference South team Whitehawk FC, were charged with conspiracy to defraud last month.
