South Wales Police arrested 10 people on Wednesday following allegations of match-fixing in the Welsh Premier League.

The arrests were made following investigations on betting patterns on a match between Port Talbot Town and Rhyl on April 9.

"These arrests are as result of a thorough process of evidence gathering and close co-operation between the Football Association of Wales, South Wales Police and the Gambling Commission," FAW chief executive Jonathan Ford said in a statement on the organisation's website.

"The FAW will not bring any sporting sanctions against any individuals while the police investigation is ongoing."
