Groovy for changing assignee based on custom field (User Picker) on Create transition


I'm trying to write a simple groovy script, to change the assignee of an issue on the create transition based on the value of a custom field User Picker named " Line Manager " 
The below is the groovy script I have altered from another post.

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.ModifiedValue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.DefaultIssueChangeHolder
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.IssueChangeHolder
ComponentManager componentManager = ComponentManager.getInstance()
CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = componentManager.getCustomFieldManager()
IssueManager issueManager = componentManager.getIssueManager()
CustomField srcField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(issue).find { == "CustomField"}
cfwt = issue.getCustomFieldValue(sccField)
if (cfwt == "CustomFieldValue001"){
else if (cfwt == "CustomFieldValue002"){
else if (cfwt == "CustomFieldValue003"){
But it is not working sad
Can anyone provide me proper groovy script ?
Custom field name : Line Manager
Field ID : 10050
Thanks in advance

Would be helpful to know how it's not working... did you check the logs?

It's probably the positioning of the function within the other functions - the way you have written it this function needs to be first, or at least before the ones that store and reindex the issue.
