Police investigating a former Cambridge United and Peterborough United coach who was arrested on suspicion of indecency with children and indecent assault have passed a file to the Crown Prosection Service.

Michael Sean Carson, 74, also known as Kit, was detained in Cambridge in January as part of an investigation into allegations of abuse in football.

He spent 10 years at Norwich City, including as youth coach and left the club in 1993 to join Peterborough United. He was later appointed Cambridge United’s head of youth development in 2001. He left that role in 2006 to join Histon FC.

During his time at Norwich in the 1980s and 1990s, Mr Carson brought through influential youngsters including Ruel Fox and Chris Sutton.

He also worked in Finland - where he began coaching youth teams in 2012 - and has taken UK youth teams on competitive tours of the country.
