FORMER Dorchester Town striker Emile N'Goy has been covertly filmed allegedly helping to recruit footballers to spot-fix matches in a sting by BBC Wales Investigates.

N'Goy, who has dual Democratic Republic of Congo and France citizenship, played 11 times for Dorchester in the 2019/20 and 2020/21 seasons, scoring twice.

Undercover BBC Wales journalists filmed N'Goy and his brother, Hermes, allegedly discussing potential spot-fixing in a room with three European footballers - Idris Laib, Jean-Francois Mbuba and Julien Vercauteren.

The reporters filmed four meetings with the brothers across 20 months.

The quartet have not responded to the allegations when approached by BBC Wales.

Hermes N'Goy denied the quintet's intentions were to spot-fix, which sees players illegally alter games in specific moments such as throw-ins, bookings or red cards, so gamblers - often from criminal gangs - can defraud bookmakers.

Emile, currently a free agent, netted the winner for Dorchester in a 1-0 victory against then league leaders Tiverton in October 2020.

After leaving Dorchester last summer, he played for Stranraer and has previously had spells with Llanelli in Wales, plus Scottish side Brechin and clubs in Portugal and Italy.

There is no suggestion that Emile N'Goy, his teammates at the time or the players mentioned, spot-fixed at any of the clubs named in this report.

However, Laib, Mbuba and Vercauteren all admitted to the journalists that they had previous experience of spot-fixing.

According to BBC Wales, an undercover journalist first approached Emile during his Llanelli spell. The forward allegedly responded by telling the reporter he would liaise with his brother.

Hermes is then filmed discussing a strategy with the journalists, saying he would recruit lower-league players in a bid to avoid detection.

The journalists were told they must each pay an annual salary between £17,000 and £21,400 or £430 for individual spot-fixes such as throw-ins.

Yellow and red cards were priced at £850 and £1,700 respectively.
