Disgraced former Manchester City coach Barry Bennell has been sentenced to four more years – on top of the 31 year sentence he is currently serving.

Bennell admitted the nine counts at Chester Crown Court in July and was further sentenced this afternoon.

He admitted the offences which include indecent assault, in relation to two complainants between 1979 and 1988.

Bennell is currently serving a 31-year sentence after being convicted of 50 child sexual offences.

The former football talent spotter was described as the “devil incarnate” by a judge after he was convicted in 2018 of abusing 12 boys aged eight to 15 between 1979 and 1991.

Judge Patrick Thompson had said he would have to put himself in the position of the previous judge and decide how much extra he could have imposed had he been aware there were two more complainants.

He added: “It is important the two victims have the opportunity to come to court.”

It is unclear yet if the victims did attend court.

Barry Bennell scouted for Crewe Alexandria and Manchester City.
