POLICE are still investigating 11 people over alleged match-fixing in a Welsh Premier League match which was played two years ago, according to BBC Sport.

No-one has been charged since betting patterns on the game between Rhyl and Port Talbot at Belle Vue sparked a police probe after the Lilywhites, who had not won in 17 games, triumphed 5-0.

South Wales Police said a file had been submitted to the Crown Prosecution Service, but the CPS said it had not received a full file of evidence. This means prosecutors are not in a position where any charges could be considered.

South Wales Police's economic crime unit started the investigation after receiving information from the Football Association of Wales (FAW) and the Gambling Commission.

Eight men and three women - including players, staff and associates - were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud.

The FAW said it would be inappropriate to comment while the police investigation was ongoing.
