Footbal Sexual Abuse Apocalypse

Il sospetto di un “cover-up”, una copertura orchestrata dalle maggiori società, ha perfino offuscato la conferenza stampa di presentazione del nuovo allenatore della nazionale inglese, Gareth Southgate, costringendo Martin Glenn, amministratore delegato della Football Association, seduto al suo fianco, a promettere un’inchiesta interna per punire chiunque sia colpevole di abusi sessuali, “indifferentemente dalle sue dimensioni”, un riferimento alla possibilità che squadre o personaggi famosi possano essere coinvolti nello scandalo. “Dubito che ci sia stato un cover-up”, ha detto Glenn, “ma non posso garantirlo con certezza. Faremo piena luce”.

Intanto a fare luce ci stanno provando un quarto delle forze di polizia dell’Inghilterra, ovvero le autorità di 16 contee, dal Derbyshire al Somerset, dall’Essex al Norfolk, da Manchester a Londra. In appena una settimana, Scotland Yard e altri corpi di polizia hanno ricevuto 350 denunce da parte di vittime di presunti abusi sessuali legati al calcio giovanile e hanno già aperto indagini per individuare i responsabili. Vengono indagati possibili crimini avvenuti anche molto tempo fa, ma la priorità viene data a situazioni in cui il colpevole potrebbe ancora essere attivo come allenatore e a contatto con bambini o ragazzi.

Ancora più alto è il numero di denunce a una linea calda telefonica creata appositamente per le giovani vittime di abusi sessuali nel calcio: la National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty for Children ha ricevuto 860 chiamate nella prima settimana in cui è entrata in funzione. E il numero di abusi, ammettono con imbarazzo i dirigenti del football nazionale, potrebbe essere infinitamente più alto. “In questo paese abbiamo 3 milioni di persone che giocano a calcio ogni fine settimana”, commenta Glen Clarke, presidente della Football Association. “La scala è enorme, ed è difficile dire se il numero di denunce emerse fino ad ora sia alto o basso”. I giornali non escludono che lo scandalo possa assumere proporzioni più grandi di quello della pedofilia all’interno della Bbc, scoppiato qualche anno fa attorno alla figura del presentatore Jimmy Savile e poi allargatosi a macchia d’olio a numerose personalità del video, o negli orfanatrofi cattolici in Irlanda.

A spingere quelle che per adesso sono centinaia di vittime a parlare è stata la decisione di un piccolo numero di ex-calciatori professionisti di rivelare per la prima volta l’orrore degli abusi sofferti quando giocavano nelle squadre giovanili. L’ultimo a farsi avanti è David Eatock, ex-giocatore del Newcastle, che ha accusato un ex-allenatore del club, George Ormond, di avere abusato di lui. “Volevo piangere ma non riuscivo nemmeno a piangere”, ha raccontato al Guardian. 

Un altro ex-allenatore di giovanili al centro dello scandalo, Barry Bennell, più volte condannato per pedofilia ma attualmente in libertà, è stato ricoverato in ospedale dopo un apparente tentativo di suicidio.

Former footballer Paul Stewart's revelations that he was abused as a child by a football coach has inspired hundreds of men across the country to report their abuse

Victims of sexual abuse in football have come forward to Hertfordshire Police as the true scale of the nationwide scandal continues to grow.
The force has revealed that it has received seven separate reports of historic sexual abuse at football clubs in the county since revelations first broke last month.
Police said the reports relate to seven different coaches and none of the reports related to Watford FC.
The force is also encouraging any victims of abuse to come forward.
Former professional footballers including Andy Woodward, Paul Stewart and David White revealed last month they had been victims of sexual abuse from coaches as junior players.
Hertfordshire Constabulary is the latest force to confirm it is investigating such claims alongside 21 others.
To date, seven allegations of non-recent child sexual abuse related is currently under investigation.
Two have already been referred out of force, four have no further lines of enquiry, and the final one is in preliminary stages of investigation but is not linked to a professional football club.
Detective Inspector Chris Treadwell said: “Hertfordshire Constabulary is committed to protecting children and young people and the specialist Joint Child Protection Investigation Team (JCPIT) is dedicated to investigating both current and non-recent allegations of abuse. The unit works with the wider policing service to safeguard victims as well as bring those who harm children to justice.
The physical or sexual abuse of children can occur in any setting, not just sport, and in many cases occurs when perpetrators are in a position of trust.”
The National Police Chiefs' Council said 98 clubs across the country and spanning all tiers of the game had been "impacted" by the growing abuse scandal, with 83 potential suspects identified.
The vast majority of potential victims were male, and were seven to 20 years old at the time of the alleged abuse.
The NSPCC said last week they had received more than 1,700 calls to its free helpline since it launched on November 23 including 50 calls within the first two hours of it opening scandal.

Seven football coaches under investigation for historic sex abuse  Charlotte Ikonen Dec 20 2016

Children as young as 4 years old are potential victims in the sex abuse scandal in British soccer that might be spreading to other sports.
British police say there have been 819 referrals to Operation Hydrant - the nation-wide investigation into child sex abuse within soccer - and that there are 429 victims between the ages of 4 and 20.
There are 155 potential suspects and 148 clubs spanning the Premier League to the amateur game have been impacted, although not all of them are under investigation.
The National Police Chiefs' Council says while the ''vast majority of referrals relate to football,'' some have come from other sports.
The scandal was sparked by former professionals coming forward about the abuse they suffered as youngsters.

A force spokesperson said: “We have received a report in relation to an allegation of historic sexual offences in Northumberland.
“We are working closely with, and supporting, the victim and enquiries are ongoing.”
Operation Tide is probing allegations of child sexual abuse at Newcastle United in the 1980s and 1990s.
Reports have focused on abuse by George Ormond, a football coach connected to the Magpies who was branded a “predatory abuser” by a judge when locked up in 2002.
Ormond - who worked at Montagu and North Fenham boys football club - was jailed for six years, then aged 46, after being convicted of 12 indecent assaults and one attempted indecent assault on seven boys under 16.
Northumbria Police said it had received “a number of reports” following high-profile media coverage of victims waiving their anonymity to speak out.
The force said it had met with the club and would carry out a full investigation into these reports.

Football referee suspended over allegations of historical sex abuse KEIRAN SOUTHERN 22 DEC 2016

Football bosses have raised concerns about a lack of background checks on agents dealing with children as young as 11 amid allegations of historical child abuse in the game.

MSPs described the current system as "insane", "absurd" and "simple exploitation" after hearing evidence of compensation payments between clubs for the transfer of young players and some clubs paying as little as £1 a week as a wage.
Police Scotland is investigating numerous reports of child sexual abuse in football and the Scottish Football Association (SFA) is to establish an independent review into the allegations.

Authorities investigate possible widespread pedophilia by British soccer coaches  Dec. 1, 2016


Non ci sono solo Barry Bennell e George Ormond tra i mostri che hanno imperversato per anni nel calcio inglese. Un altro nome che ricorre spesso e volentieri è quello di Frank Roper. Come anche Eddie Heath, già capo scout del Chelsea negli anni '70, anche Roper non sarà mai portato davanti a un giudice, essendo da tempo scomparso. Ma le accuse post mortem a suo carico sono davvero pesanti. E la fonte principale è un giocatore di fama come Paul Stewart, ex centrocampista di Blackpool, Manchester City, Tottenham e Liverpool oltre che della nazionale inglese.

Fiducia totale da parte del Blackpool

Stewart finì nella rete di Roper a metà anni '70, quando era un promettente ragazzino delle giovanili del Blackpool. Roper non era un impiegato del club, ma il titolare di una società giovanile, la Nova, che ai Seasiders forniva molte giovani promesse. Molto quotato nell'ambiente, godeva della totale fiducia del Blackpool, tanto che a un certo punto il team manager Sam Ellis non ebbe problemi ad affidargli il figlio Tim per una tour promozionale in Nuova Zelanda. Insomma, Roper aveva accesso a una fonte praticamente infinita di prede. E per attirare le sue vittime aveva anche un'altra arma: la ricchezza guadagnata col suo negozio di abbigliamento sportivo. Come quasi sempre accade nei casi di pedofilia, puntava i più deboli tra i suoi allievi, li conquistava con soldi e regali e, una volta ottenuta la loro fiducia, li trasformava in oggetti, assumendo il totale controllo.

"Minacciava di uccidere la mia famiglia"

Questo, almeno, è ciò che emerge dalla testimonianza di Stewart. Che, come altri, ha trovato il coraggio di parlare solo dopo l'intervista concessa da Andy Woodward al Guardian sul caso Bennell. Stewart racconta di avere subìto gli abusi di Roper praticamente ogni giorno per 4 anni e di essere rimasto in silenzio all'epoca dei fatti per paura - “Minacciava di uccidere i miei genitori e tutta la mia famiglia se avessi parlato. Ero sempre sotto minaccia. Se non giocavo bene, mi minacciava di violentarmi. Era un mostro” - e per vergogna dopo la morte del suo aguzzino, avvenuta 11 anni fa: “Mi dispiace che Roper sia morto, ma solo e soltanto perché non potrà essere portato davanti alla giustizia per le sue azioni, per ciò cui mi ha sottoposto. Il fatto che sia morto non cambia comunque molto le cose. Ho raccontato la mia storia per aiutare altri a gestire una situazione come la mia. Io non l'ho gestita molto bene per anni e, a essere onesto, ancora ho problemi. Ormai mi sono rassegnato al fatto che dovrò farci i conti per sempre”. Di Roper ha parlato anche Jamie Forrester, ex Leeds United e Hull City. Pur non essendo stato oggetto delle attenzioni del tecnico del Nova, Forrester sostiene di averlo visto violentare un ragazzino di 11 anni durante un tour in Thailandia. “Quelllo che Frank Roper ha fatto è imperdonabile. Incuteva timore. Puntava sempre i ragazzi più deboli e più vulnerabili

Stewart: “Violentato per 4 anni, la mia vita rovinata” 6 dicembre 2016 VALERIO CAMMARANO

Paul Stewart: I was sexually abused by my football coach for four years 22 November 2016 


Two more players have come forward to give disturbing accounts of how coach Frank Roper preyed on young footballers in the North West.
Jon Bottomley, who played in Manchester United’s 1985-86 FA Youth Cup final team, talked of how Roper, who was exposed in Thursday's Sportsmail as the paedophile who abused former England forward Paul Stewart, would groom boys.
Roper, who ran Nova FC based in Stockport, organised trips to play schoolboy teams in the United States, where at least one incident of abuse took place. Bottomley played for Nova and said a boy woke one night to find his shorts pulled down and Roper in his bed.
The incident happened on a trip to California when Nova’s Under 12s and Under 15s had been allowed by Roper to watch X-rated horror films The Exorcist and The Shining.
Bottomley, now 48, said: ‘The boy woke with his shorts around his ankles and Frank in bed next to him. He told me Frank had tried to “do him” and he’d told him to f*** off and hit him. We knew Frank was dodgy but nobody knew what a paedophile was back then.’
Bottomley added: ‘We’d go back to his home. There were boxes of football gear everywhere by Admiral and Umbro and he’d let us take what we wanted.
‘We just thought he was being nice but looking back it was grooming.’
Roper, who died in 2005, would give Bottomley a lift to training and sometimes picked up Stewart, too.
Bottomley said: ‘It was watching Paul Stewart talking about what happened to him which encouraged me to say what I know.’
Des Wroe, a former Bradford footballer, also played for Nova and broke down as he recalled how Roper tried to climb into bed with him and two team-mates.
Roper had arranged for Wroe, who was 14, and his pals to go tenpin bowling in Manchester.
They ended up at Roper’s house around midnight and the boys went to a bedroom where there was a double bed.
Wroe said: ‘I remember one of my pals saying, “I’m nearest to the wall”, as we got into bed. I remember asking myself, “Why does he want to sleep closest to the wall?”
‘I was closest to the door. Frank opened the bedroom door before turning off the light. I’ll never forget it. He was wearing a scruffy blue top and a pair of burgundy boxer shorts.
‘He took the covers off and looked to jump into bed with all of us.
‘I had a horrified look on my face. I don’t know if it was my reaction but he stopped. He just slept on the floor next to us.
‘I feel lucky but I feel guilty. I keep thinking, “Were the boys trying to warn me with that nearest to the wall shout?”
‘Did they know? Had they been abused? Could I have helped?’

A former coach at Southampton FC has been named in connection with allegations of historic sexual abuse - as the number of claims of abuse across the game continues to grow.
Southampton’s former youth development officer Bob Higgins has been identified to police by a number of former youth players who claim to have been sexually abused by him.
The 63-year-old is still working in football as a coach with Fleet Town FC in Hampshire.
In recent weeks, at least six former youth players have come forward alleging Higgins sexually abused them over a number of years.
Former Southampton player Dean Radford waivered his right to anonymity to tell the BBC he had experienced abuse by Higgins, saying: “There was the going in the bedroom at night, there was the love songs, there was the touching.”
Jamie Webb, who joined the club when he was 13, told the broadcaster that Higgins had “tried to move down and put his hand in between my shorts and my tracksuit that I was wearing.”
Higgins faced six sexual abuse charges in 1992 but was cleared by a judge of assaulting young boys.
In 1997, a joint letter was sent out by Hampshire Police and social services declaring that Higgins was “considered a risk to children, the Sun on Sunday reports.
Hampshire Police has confirmed it is investigating the incident.
The Chairman of Fleet Town FC told the BBC the club had not received any notifications about the allegations, but that it would cooperate fully with any enquiries.
Southampton had previously said it would work with Hampshire police as part of a large scale probe into youth football across the country.
It comes after former Leeds footballer Jamie Forrester claimed a football paedophile ring did exist amid the widening sex abuse scandal in the game.
Mr Forrester, who joined Leeds United in 1992, alleged he was groped by former scout Frank Roper.
What Frank Roper did was unforgivable," the 42-year-old told The Sunday People. “He was a very scary and very intimidating man and he always ­targeted the weaker, more vulnerable boys.
“Roper never touched my private parts or tried to rape me. But he regularly groped me and ­others. And there was constant mental abuse.”
Mr Forrester, who has informed the Professional Footballers’ Association and children’s charity the NSPCC about Roper, also claimed to have seen the scout raping an 11-year-old Thai boy during a football tour to the country.
He also claimed than “an organised ­network [of abuse] was in place”.

Football abuse: Coach was 'like messiah' 
16 December 2016

A former Newcastle United footballer has said abuse by coach George Ormond left him a "shell" of his former self.
David Eatock, now 40, told the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire show he had been groomed by Ormond from age 18 to 21.
Mr Eatock was not part of the court case that saw Ormond convicted in 2002 for assaulting seven boys, but has now filed a complaint to the police.
New England football manager Gareth Southgate said a former teammate was among those to have spoken of abuse.
It comes as the NSPCC said its hotline - set up to offer support to victims of child sex abuse within footballhad received 860 calls in its first week.

'Exceptional bravery'

At his first news conference as England manager, Southgate revealed he had played alongside one of the footballers who has spoken out about being sexually abused in their youth - although he did not identify him.
Asked if he had been aware of any abuse going on, he said: "The reality of that, as they have said, is that they [abuse victims] haven't felt able to speak about that until this moment, and that's completely understandable.
"And of course with the benefit of hindsight you always relay then things that you have seen from the past and have an understanding, 'oh, okay, that's why we saw the things we saw'."
He said the allegations of abuse were "heartbreaking", and the bravery of the men coming forward was "exceptional".
There had been "enormous strides" made in protecting young players, he told reporters.
Speaking as a parent, he added: "If I'm a parent sending my child to a game over the weekend, I feel they are in a much better place than we were 15, 20 years ago."
Alongside Southgate at the conference, Football Association chief executive Martin Glenn said he did not believe there had been a "cover-up" at the FA.
Asked about allegations of "hush money" being paid to abuse victims, he said: "If the FA have made errors, we'll own up to them, as must the rest of football.
"Do I think there's been a cover-up in the game? I doubt it.
"I think the FA has, since the late 90s, taken safeguarding extremely seriously; we wrote it into the standard chartered rules that there should be safety officers, and at a time when society was very different," he said.
The NSPCC hotline is available 24 hours a day on 0800 023 2642.
Within the first three days of it launching, the organisation made more than 60 referrals to a range of agencies across the UK.
That was more than three times as many referrals as in the first three days of the Jimmy Savile scandal, the NSPCC added.
Jon Brown, the charity's lead on tackling sexual abuse, suggested that some of the calls to the hotline were about current abuse.
It would be naïve to assume that all the concerns were in the past and that there was not "an ongoing problem in football and in sport generally" that needed to be dealt with, he told the BBC.
There are now 15 police forces investigating allegations.
David Eatock signed for Newcastle United in 1995, at the age of 18. He regularly played for the club's reserve team until the age of 21, when a knee injury ended his professional career.
Mr Eatock - who has waived his right to anonymity - said he had been groomed by Ormond during this period, adding that the coach masturbated in front of him.
He said Ormond had "preyed" on him because he had been vulnerable, as his father had been seriously ill with bowel cancer at the time.
"I was an adult, but really just a boy," he said.
The former footballer said: "I never had reason to see Ormond, but he sought me out.
"I trained with the main team, and Ormond was a youth team coach.
"He'd seen me previously when I was at another club and had scored a hat-trick.
"He told me I'd make a fantastic player, and he'd keep an eye on me, so when I went to Newcastle he sought me out."
Mr Eatock said on the first occasion he had been groomed, Ormond "worked out what guest house I was staying at and just turned up".
"I was on my own most of the time in that guest house - only saw people at meal times," he said.
"So then he turned up, took me for a drink and kept buying me drink, after drink, after drink. I thought, 'This is what footballers do.'"
Mr Eatock said the conversation "turned to sex... and he talked about my penis".
He said: "He invited himself back to my guest house. Within moments, he unzipped his pants and started masturbating."
The former Newcastle United forward, who played alongside the Premier League's record goal scorer Alan Shearer, said this "began to happen about once a month".
"He'd take me out for a drink. He'd get me so drunk I'd be sick, and he'd talk about sex and my penis," he said.
Mr Eatock said the grooming continued until his contract at Newcastle United expired, in 1998.
He said when Ormond realised the player would not be kept on, he sexually assaulted him.
"He put his hands down my pants. You'd like to think that you'd hit him, fight back, but I was in shock. I couldn't speak," he said.
"I've spent 20 years wondering why I didn't do anything.
"I signed for Newcastle as a really confident boy, and when I left I was a shell."

On Wednesday, former Newcastle United footballer Derek Bell said he was abused hundreds of times by Ormond in the 1970s, while playing for the Montagu and North Fenham boys football club.
Mr Bell went on to have a short professional career, which was ended by injury. But years later, in the late 1990s, he discovered that his abuser had become involved in youth coaching at Newcastle so he reported the original incidents to police.

'Anxiety and depression'

He also visited Ormond at his home and secretly recorded a conversation between them. This evidence led to the conviction of Ormond for sexual assaults on seven different boys and he was sentenced to six years in prison.
Sentencing Ormond, the judge Esmond Faulks told him: "The evidence demonstrates you were a predatory abuser of young boys."
At the time of sentencing, Mr Eatock said his wife had asked if he had known Ormond - at which point he had opened up to her.
"She told me to go the police, but I didn't," he said. "I thought, 'He's been punished anyway.'"
Mr Eatock said he had lived with anxiety and depression for the past 10 years "because of what [Ormond] did to me" and now saw a therapist.

Football child sex abuse: Ex-Newcastle player David Eatock latest to speak out 1 December 2016



An average of 80 child sex abuse cases a month have been referred to police over the last year following victims' testimony to an independent inquiry.
The figure emerged as the first report by the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse's (IICSA) Truth Project was published on Thursday amid a growing scandal of historical offences in youth football.
As one strand of the wide-ranging probe, the project was intended to help victims of child sexual abuse share their experiences with the inquiry, allowing it to build a picture of why crimes remain unreported and undetected for so long.
Some 500 people have come forward wanting to attend one of the project's private sessions, IICSA said.
The referrals to the dedicated national police team, under Operation Hydrant, are the result of written submissions and reports received by IICSA as well as evidence from many of the 150 people who have already spoken to the Truth Project itself.
Drusilla Sharpling, a member of the probe's panel who leads the project, said: "We make roughly about 80 (referrals) a month, that's overall.
"It would be rare, in my experience, not to make a referral from the Truth Project because most people are coming to report child sexual abuse and that is a crime.
"Where somebody reports child sexual abuse they are clearly reporting a criminal offence. Our terms of reference require us to report those matters to the police.
"We can do so anonymously if that person wishes."
Ms Sharpling said not every referral would necessarily be a new case or the first time an allegation had been made.
She said: "We would pass any allegations on. Sometimes it's difficult to discern whether there has been a completed criminal investigation or not and we can't put ourselves in the police officers' shoes at that point. It's a matter for the police to investigate."
The new report, the first in a regular series, included the experiences of 45 anonymous men and women, who opened up about abuse including in religious institutions, care homes and schools.
Professor Alexis Jay, the inquiry's fourth chairwoman, said their testimony would help shape its recommendations.
She said: "By publishing the first set of victims and survivors' experiences, we create a permanent record that cannot be swept under the carpet or ignored.
"They will act as a spotlight on the cultures and practices of institutions and serve as an enduring statement so that no-one can again claim ignorance of past institutional failures."
Among the suggestions for changes survivors said they would like to see were lifelong support for victims and a restorative justice approach which would allow victims to confront institutions.
Many reported frustration at institutions for failing to act on allegations initially and for authorities for failing to prosecute the accused.
The inquiry has been beset by problems, including resignations and leadership changes, since it was set up by then home secretary Theresa May in 2014.
Described as the most ambitious public inquiry ever launched in England and Wales, there are suggestions it could cost more than £100 million.
The findings of an internal review into its approach, including its 13 investigative strands, was "imminent", Ms Sharpling said.

In una nota ufficiale, il Chelsea ha affermato che Johnson "ha subito una inaccettabile sofferenza" e ha ribadito di non avere alcuna intenzione di "nascondere alcun abuso venuto allo scoperto".

The English Football Association’s review of sexual abuse by youth soccer coaches linked to professional clubs has expanded as more victims come forward, the governing body said Tuesday after appointing a new lead lawyer.
Clive Sheldon, a lawyer with child protection expertise, will head the review in place of Kate Gallafent “in the light of the increased scope of the review,” the FA said in a statement.
At least 55 clubs, professional and amateur, have been implicated in the escalating scandal. London club Queens Park Rangers became the latest club on Tuesday to say “it has been made aware of the historical allegations” of child abuse against a former scout tasked with spotting talent.
The FA said its review will investigate what clubs linked to sexual abusers “did or did not know and/or did or did not do in relation to child sexual abuse which have been brought to light in the press relating to the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, and up until around 2005.”
The FA has expressed concern the clubs agreed to secret compensation deals that prevented the victims from speaking out about the abuse they sufferedChelsea apologized over the weekend to a former player who was sexually abused while a member of the club’s youth team and who was paid 50,000 pounds ($77,500 U.S.) to keep the matter out of the public domain.

Damian Collins, chairman of the Culture, Media and Sport committee, has backed the Football Association's decision to widen its inquiry into historic sexual abuse in the game but said the final report must be made public.

In a statement, the FA said this was in ''light of the increased scope of the review'', which has been prompted by an avalanche of allegations about sexual abuse in football dating back to the 1970s, and the decision had been made ''with respect to her other professional commitments''.

There is already speculation that the scale of allegations emerging about sexual abuse in football will eclipse the Jimmy Savile revelations.
The NSPCC has said that around 350 potential victims have reported sex abuse within British football. Last week there were 860 calls in the first week alone of the NSPCC helpline.

A suspected paedophile was reportedly allowed to continue working in football for several years despite being reported to police and the Scottish Football Association.
Hugh Stevenson, who is now dead, has previously been accused of a number of sexual assaults on children during his time working as both a coach and referee.

As a result of the investigation, the SFA has suspended former coach and official Mitch Agnew as it launches its own independent probe into the handling of complaints.
