    I used to know a guy who worked for a bookies on a freelance basis.

    He would attend minor games in Scotland that had a betting market, such as a Hibs reserve/development game. He would be on his phone for the 90 minutes just relaying what was going on. It was pretty simply stuff like 'Hibs attacking', 'Hearts shot', 'Hibs corner', 'cross from the left into Hibs box'. The bookies live text and any in house TV (or regular TV for bigger games) always have a slight delay, usually a matter of seconds, but it gives the bookies their edge.
    If a penalty is awarded all betting is suspended. Next goal scorer , time , next team to score etc. A guy who worked for the bookies doing this told me there is someone at every game doing this. He told me betting rings have the same set up at most games
    He had come back from a league match at Cowdenbeath and he had noticed a couple of guys relaying the same info re the match in progress and he knew they did not work with bookies.

    A number of years back, I used to work for a very, VERY successful gambler. He told me that the lower leagues of Scottish football was rife with betting dodgyness.

    The majority of non league players bet on and against their own clubs every week up here.

    Absolutely.

    It would be a stretch to say match fixing is rife in football but there are all kinds of dodgy betting deals going on.

    Cowdenbeath player got found guilty a few years back. Elgin players got found guilty against us too most recently, think that was for bookings though.

    Many moons ago I was in receipt of information on 3 occassions on the horses. These were low level jumps races on horses with next to no form. I avoided the first one and it won easily. I did back the next two, albeit with nominal amounts and both were again comfortable winners. sadly that source of information dried up.

    I was in receipt of plenty other dud tips including two that I paid for and turned out to be worse than useless

    Iím not fussed about him telling his pals he was signing. All players do that. The sums involved were so small also. £18 at 4/7 was one bet. 😂😂 itís not a £1m betting scam. Great player.

    Seems an utterly ridiculous thing for bookies to offer a market on so hell mend them. But expecting players to keep quiet to their nearest and dearest about transfers? Are they expected just to send a group message when itís confirmed along the lines of ďIím off X thousands of miles away for the next 5 years, see ya lolĒ. Whole thing is a total farce.

    Totally unfair to expect someone not to discuss the prospect of moving with their friends. A situation entirely of the bookies own doing by trying to create as many markets as possible for their own gain.

    Although heís broken the rules it seems harsh. Surely itís only fair that the bookies that reduced the odds based on info received should also be facing a 10 week ban from their work? Close them down.
