Football's darkest hour could be masculinity's brightest dawn


The football sex abuse scandal is the game’s darkest hour.

Yesterday, sources within Operation Hydrant, the national police body coordinating historical sex abuse claims, announced that 55 professional and non-league clubs have so far been named by 350 victims claiming they were abused.

The NSPCC said on Saturday it expected the number of calls to its hotline to pass 1,000.
