Former Norwich City youth coach Michael Carson to stand trial over child sex abuse charges

The trial of Michael “Kit” Carson, 75, is due to begin on Monday January 7 at Peterborough Crown Court.

He has been charged with 12 counts of indecent assault and one of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity.

The offences are alleged to have happened between 1978 and 2009 and involve 11 victims, all boys under the age of 16.

Carson, of St Bartholomew’s Court, Riverside, Cambridge, has denied all charges.

The former coach was arrested as part of the investigation into historical child sex abuse in football.

He worked at Norwich as a youth coach between 1983 and 1993, before moving to Peterborough to run their youth academy until 2001.
