FIRST EVIDENCE OF A PAEDOPHILE RING IN YOUTH FOOTBALL?
Today Jamie Forrester has come forward claiming that a former football coach, Frank Roper, raped a boy during a youth team tour in Thailand.
Jamie also goes on to explain that Roper was involved with a notorious paedophile who was also running a youth team at the same time.
Jamie’s disclosure comes after Paul Stewart also accused Roper of abusing him as a child.
The tentacles of football abuse are far-reaching beyond the touch lines and I hope ALL those involved are exposed.
My admiration goes out to all those who have so far disclosed their abuse, and those who are quietly able to come forward to report their abuse/evidence. My thoughts go out to those who haven’t been able to come to terms with what has happened to them – especially those who are no longer with us.
