Sexual Abuse in Football

Whats wrong with these deams ?

/

For more than a decade Barry Bennell was one of the most respected talent spotters in the game - but his place in football was a front for a perversion the scale of which is only now becoming clear.

The 62-year-old coached and scouted junior players during a career that saw him employed by clubs such as Stoke City, Manchester City and Crewe Alexandra.

He would travel around the North West and the Midlands, looking for boys aged nine to 14 to play in junior football teams in Derbyshire, Staffordshire and Cheshire.

The paedophile would invite boys to stay in his home or take them on football tours - but in 1992 he was sacked by Crewe for reasons that have never been made public.

Bennell - who according to the Stoke Sentinel was employed as a residential care worker in a Derbyshire children's home in the 1970s - went on to work in the US, where his insights and methods on the field earned him acclaim.

Unlike comparable scandals of recent years, his legacy of abuse received negligible media coverage - just a smattering of local reports and a short article in The Independent.

According to the latter, those basic court reports reveal how Bennell showed boys films such as The Exorcist to frighten them into sharing his bed.

There would often be two or three boys in the bed with him as the assaults took place. 

In May last year, he was jailed for two years for sexual offences committed against a 12-year-old boy in 1980. During the court case he described himself as a "monster".

Bennell, who also goes by Richard Jones, is currently out on licence and is permanently suspended from football.

His abuse is back in the spotlight after former Crewe Alexandra player Andy Woodward gave a harrowing account to The Guardian of abuse he says was perpetrated by Bennell and which has blighted his life.

Since that interview, three former professional footballers and several other people have contacted police over alleged sexual abuse carried out by the former coach.

Bennell's abuse was also once the subject of a Channel 4 Dispatches programme.

Had a feeling Crewe were going to be involved.

There was always something unsettling about dario gradi, wouldn't be surprised if something comes out about him.

The former football coach at the centre of a child sex abuse scandal, Barry Bennell, has been admitted to hospital.

"Police officers attended an address in Knebworth Park, Stevenage just before 11pm on Friday in connection with a fear for welfare incident," Thames Valley Police said in a statement.

"A 62-year-old man was located and was taken to hospital in order to receive medical treatment, where he remains."

East of England Ambulance Trust said the man was "unconscious" when paramedics reached him.

Bennell has recently been accused of sex abuse by former players.

The scandal is now expanding, with the Football Association launching an inquiry into the allegations and the Professional Footballers' Association saying more than 20 players have come forward to seek help over the abuse.

Think they need to suspend the season to investigate this then people will sit up and take notice and give this the attention it deserves.

These antics are normal in white society.

Nothing to see here as far as they are concerned.
