Bob Higgins trial: Dean Radford was not believed in previous case

In the Bob Higgins trial, twenty-four men took to the stand with startlingly similar accounts - tales of assault and abuse. Hundreds of incidents. Higgins would let them know he held the ticket to their future career in football. Then under the pretext of a training drill or a massage he would touch them inappropriately and see how far he could go. He befriended the parents so that the young teenagers were scared to betray him. Bob Higgins' 'modus operandi' is revealed in this report, which starts with the words of one of the boys he coached, Dean Radford.
