Junior football game 'investigated for match-fixing'

A report suggests that the Football Association is probing claims of match-fixing in a junior football game that finished 32-0.

The Football Association is reportedly probing claims of match-fixing over an Under-16s game that finished 32-0.

The fixture in question took place in Yorkshire's Selby and District Junior Football League, with Knottingley Albion running out heavy winners against Castleford Town.

According to a report in The Mirror, the result ensured that the league leaders had the title snatched away from them by their rivals due to a superior goal difference, and the FA are now looking into complaints.

Teenage players from both teams are said to be helping out with enquiries.
