Andre Alleyne jailed

England Under-18 coach, and well-known Channel Five pundit, Andre Alleyne has been jailed for 30 months after sexually abusing a 14-year-old schoolgirl.

The 41-year-old, who was working at Archbishop Lanfranc School in London at the time of the incident, pleaded guilty to four charges at Croydon Crown Court.

Alleyne, formerly also a coach at Milton Keynes Lions and Manchester Giants, was arrested on October 2 last year after police officers discovered emails he sent the girl on a computer seized from his home.

The judge said: "It’s long been the view of the courts in cases of this type that the courts must focus on the protection of the children and young people and that can only be done by passing sentences which are sufficient to deter men from acting in this sort of fashion.”
