LONDON - British soccer coach Barry Bennell repeatedly raped and indecently assaulted a former youth player, a court heard on Thursday at Bennell's trial for a string of alleged offenses.

Chris Unsworth, 45, said Bennell, 64, preyed on him after scouting him for Manchester City as a junior and the abuse began "straight away" after the defendant started driving him to the club's training ground.

Unsworth, who has waived his right to anonymity, appeared in the witness box at Liverpool Crown Court in the northwest English city.
