LONDON - Three footballers arrested in connection with a probe into match-fixing in non-league English football denied bribery charges on Tuesday and will stand trial in May.

Michael Boateng, Hakeem Adelakun and Moses Swaibu all pleaded not guilty at Birmingham Crown Court in central England to one count of bribery and another of plotting to commit bribery.

They are alleged to have conspired together with Krishna Ganeshan and Chann Sankaran, both originally from Singapore, who have both pleaded not guilty to three counts of bribery and one of conspiracy to commit bribery.

The alleged offences took place between November 1 and November 27 last year.

All five defendants will stand trial together at Birmingham Crown Court on May 19. The trial is expected to last up to five weeks.
