Crewe Alexandra denies knowledge of Barry Bennell abuse

Justice has been served, say victims of the ex-football coach Barry Bennell after he was convicted of a series of sex offences against boys.

But why didn’t clubs and football authorities do more to investigate the claims in the first place instead of allegedly trying to brush them all under the carpet?

Crewe Alexandra, where Bennell worked, has insisted it had never had “any suspicion or belief” that he had been involved in acts of abuse.
