Almost 800 victims have come forward against more than 100 coaches, leading to accusations that some of the game's most famous and loved clubs covered up allegations of abuse of boys in their care.

A cheer of "yes" came from the public gallery where six complainants sat with family members as the final verdicts were read out and some people were in tears.

Judge, Recorder of Liverpool Clement Goldstone QC adjourned sentencing until Monday so that cancer-sufferer Bennell - who appeared by videolink - can appear in person. The 64-year-old was convicted of 50 counts of sexual abuse in total, admitting to seven charges at the start of the trial. For decades that nightmare has haunted us.

"For decades we have lived in fear because we may be grown men stood in front of you now but we were once a little child".

Former Manchester City youth coach Steve Fleet told The Guardian he spoke out to stop the club hiring Bennell for a full-time role after hearing rumours he was "dodgy".

Liverpool crown court was told that he had "pretty much unfettered access to large numbers of young lads who dreamt of a life in professional football".

"For years, hundreds and hundreds of us were groomed in plain view, lavished with gifts and designer sports gear and taken on trips all round the world", Walters said outside court.

"How can it be that no one realised something was wrong?" he asked. How was it that no one protected us?

Police sources disclosed yesterday that a further 86 people have come forward with allegations, meaning... Between 1985 and 1992, he was on the coaching staff at Crewe.

The Football Association (FA), which is conducting an independent inquiry into historical allegations of child sexual abuse, tweeted: "We want to take this opportunity to acknowledge the traumatic experience the victims and survivors have endured at the hands of this individual, and the bravery they have shown in coming forward".

It's particularly problematic when applied to sexual abuse of the sort suffered by Barry Bennell's young footballers, many of whom were interviewed by Deborah Davies - who had first covered Bennell's crimes 20 years ago - in a shattering Channel 4 Dispatches: Football's Wall of Silence.

Bennell had run feeder clubs for Manchester City and Crewe Alexandra.
