An 81-year-old man from Soham appeared in court on Tuesday in connection with an ongoing investigation by Cambridgeshire police into historic sex abuse allegations related to football.

Eric Cooper of The Shade has been accused of two counts of indecency with a child between 1968 and 1970.

The charges relate to one boy.

Mr Cooper appeared before magistrates and was released on unconditional bail.

He is due to appear at Cambridge Crown Court on May 31.

A police spokesman said on Tuesday: “A man has today (May 2) been charged in connection with an investigation into non-recent allegations related to football in Cambridgeshire.”
