At our club we are told as coaches to never be by yourself with a child.This is awful stuff to read but a little piece of me isn't surprised that it's happened in general, I think back to my younger days and how often children are left with other parents for travelling to away games and left at mid week training with coaches and not a question asked kid of leaves opportunities open and imagine the opportunities are even more aplenty at a pro clubs youth department. I really feel for the lad though and any over kids this has happened to whilst trying to pursue their dreams. It really is a fucked up thing for an adult to do to a child and I hope the culprits get what they deserve, probably won't though as read that Stewart Hall cunt is living in council estate somewhere near me in South Manchester the other day just getting on with his life now. Was only a couple of years he did for his crimes.... Should be much longer in my opinion.
That's true but it's in the best interest of everyone for it to be deemed unusual for child to be left alone with an adult in a position of authority. If clubs had had stricter policies regarding this, a lot of these things would not have happened.That's a fair enough but also a sorry state of affairs too.
