Two men charged with football match-fixing in England will remain in police custody until December 13.

Chann Sankaran, 33, and Krishna Sanjey Ganeshan, 43, appeared before Cannock magistrates today after they were charged by the National Crime Agency yesterday.

Following an investigation by The Telegraph, six men were arrested in connection with the allegations, which are said to relate to lower-league football in England.

Following today's hearing at Cannock Magistrates' Court, the two men were ordered to remain in custody for two weeks.

A seventh man relating to the allegations was arrested yesterday, but he and four others were released on bail pending further enquiries.
