By Colin MacDonald.

A part-time small town footballer, newly redundant, is offered £10,000 to throw a Scottish Cup-tie by a Far East betting syndicate.

He could carve out a new future for himself and his young family.

But it would mean betraying his team-mates, his town and the game itself.

Will he do it?

A timely play that gives a touchline view of the controversy surrounding sport and gambling.
