Esmond Million

Esmond Million is a former football goalkeeper.

Playing career

Million played for Middlesbrough from 1956 to 1962. He joined Bristol Rovers in 1962.

In April 1963, he took a £300 bribe to throw a match. The ploy failed and Million was exposed amid the 1964 British football match-fixing scandal. After having been banned from football for life, he emigrated with his family to Canada where he became active in professional ice hockey. He would eventually return to Britain and is now thought to be living in Tunbridge Wells, Kent.
