Prosecution: another boy , aged eight or nine, was asked by Barry Bennell to play for a Man City junior team and was abused on the car journey to training "at least 100 times " until he was 12-13.

Child abusing football coach Barry Bennell worked in a children's home Another player, Chris Unsworth, told the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire program that he 'was raped by Bennell between 50 and 100 times .'

Former football coach Barry Bennell was a "predatory and determined" paedophile who engaged in systematic abuse of young boys , a UK court has heard. The jury was told one alleged victim had been abused by Bennell on more than 100 occasions after meeting him when he was a scout for

"Although it seems that Mr Bennell was a relatively successful coach, he had a much darker side. He was also a predatory and determined paedophile."

The court was told young boys would be given free sports kit at Bennell's house and allowed to eat takeaway food.

There were also arcade games to play and a pet monkey.

The prosecution alleges the abuse took place at Bennell's home, on tour with football teams in Wales and at the ground of Crewe Alexandra FC, where he worked as a youth coach at the time.

The offences are alleged to have taken place between 1979 and 1991 when the alleged victims were between eight and 15 years old.

Mr Johnson told jurors they may have already heard that Bennell had admitted some sexual offending against three people in the case, but he is also accused of much more serious offending - which would now be categorised as male rape.

The jury would have to decide, Mr Johnson added, whether they were listening to a group of men who, as Bennell alleges, had "jumped on the bandwagon" and maliciously made up stories.

He said they may also agree with the Crown's case that a paedophile had committed serious sexual offences on a large scale and over a long period of time.

Mr Johnson said: "In those circumstances we will suggest in due course that it is no surprise either that the extent of his offending has taken so long to emerge or that there is repetition in the way, we allege, he committed his offences."

Bennell denies the charges and the trial continues.
