Steve Walters, one of Woodward’s former team-mates, has also spoken out about his abuse at the hands of Bennell, who served nine years after admitting 23 specimen charges of sexual offences, including buggery, against six boys aged nine to 15.Woodward has criticised Crewe for their lack of apology in the first official statement the club have released about the escalating Bennell case.“It frightened me to death, did not know what to do, I tried to tell my parents not to let him in but I was only 11.From then, it progressed to sexually abusing me, he said he would kill my mother, my father, my two brothers if I breathed a word about it.

It inspired Stewart's countless benefit concerts in East Timor with the Painters and Dockers and later, the Dili Allstars, and while on his death bed in Melbourne he was cared for by a Timorese nun."She said, 'I've heard of you guys.
