Ex- Premier League coach bags 20-year jail sentence for sexually abusing teenage boys for 30 years

An ex-premier league coach and paedophile who worked with Newcastle United’s youth team has been jailed for 20 years after he was found guilty of sexually abusing boys for over three decades.

The 62-year-old worked with a prominent youth team in the city in the 1970s and 1980s, before assisting at the Premier League club in the 1990s.

He used his power to sexually abuse boys as young as 11 and keep them silent.

Judge Edward Bindloss, sitting at Newcastle Crown Court, said: “Evidence showed that over a 25-year period, George Ormond was a man wholly preoccupied with sex who used his position as a respected football coach to target boys and young men in his care.”

The 62-year-old had already been jailed for six years in 2002 for 12 indecent assaults on young players. Ormond was convicted of 35 indecent assaults on Tuesday and one count of indecency.
