A number of points - it is certainly more likely that children will be abused (sexually, physically, mentally etc,) by a family member than by a stranger
The fact that a certain junior team walked into a tournament some years ago to be greeted by a regular poster on this forum with the loud comment, "Here come X's bum boys" would suggest that there were suspicions.....
ECF does have a Child Protection Policy, but it is not well-written..... All the CPPs I've seen seem to be there solely so the organisation can say they've got one.
I really don't understand the police bail thing - they had a large number of statements already, and it is alleged that when they went to arrest him, he was in bed with a boy, so why not ask a magistrate? (You don't need to be Inspector Morse to think there's a problem there.) People have been charged with a lot less evidence than that, only for the charge to be dropped later. Admittedly in those days, abuse of children was not taken seriously.
