Abuse and Death of Paul Kingsley 2

paulkingsley                                                            Paul Kingsley RIP

This little boy, Paul Kingsley was sexually assaulted and then murdered. He was murdered in his scout uniform, strangled with the neckerchief.

Anthony Sinclair, manager of Pudsey Juniors Football Club was convicted of manslaughter as he claimed he killed Paul accidentally whilst having sex.

It is thought Sinclair has changed his name and perhaps moved South of England?  Does anyone recognise him under a different name?

Is Anthony George Sinclair still alive?

Paul may have been a victim of sexual assaults separate to the murder. See Paul Kingsley Assault and Death Bradford 1976 [2]

Who carried out these sexual assaults?

Was anyone else at Pudsey Juniors Football Club involved?

The Scouts, 31st Bradford Scout troop met weekly on Thursday at Trinity Road. The scoutmaster lived near the top of Cecil Avenue. Can anyone remember his name or the names of other scout leaders from 1972 – 1977 ?

The Pudsey Juniors have a webpage, archived here [1a] which has some local newspaper clippings from the time.

It is felt there is stilll much more useful information could come out about any sexual assaults on young boys perhaps in football or the scouts in Bradford and Leeds area.

Can you help with any information in confidence?

Philip Longbottom was another child abuser in the same sort of area carrying out assaults against young boys. Was he connected in any way?  Paedophile Scout leader gets life sentence after abusing boys over 60 years  [7] [8]

As this wide ranging article points out football child abuse has many connections. UK Football Child Sex Abuse – Massive Rabbit Hole [9]

More information has come in –

The Life of Mr Anthony Sinclair [HT @snowfaked] [10] (Does anyone know the original source or why this was written?)

The Life Of Mr. Anthony Sinclair
      Anthony George Sinclair was born on December 14, 1942. He was the first child of a family of three boys and two girls.
       After Attending Potternewton Infants and Junior schools he went to Chapeltown Secondary Modern School. He left there with no qualifications and went to work as a commis waiter at the Queens Hotel in Leeds. It was the first of a long series of jobs. Until he was 18, he worked as a warehouseman at several firms and then spent 2 years as a bus conductor.
        He signed on in the army but stayed only 10 weeks before he bought himself out for £ 25. After working as a warehouseman, he joined the Leeds Corporation Parks Department where for 6 years he was a gardener. It was during this period that Sinclair decided to better himself and after passing six GCEs, he was about to start a teacher training course at Bradford.
       During the holidays, he worked as a waiter and cleaner at a Pontins Holidays Camps. Sinclair’s ambition with his work as a team manager with the Pudsey Junior Football Team, was to become a physical education teacher.
Anthony George Sinclair was born in Leeds in 1942 his mothers maiden name was Cooper.

Sinclair is believed to have finished his sentence in 1982. A reporter not longer after went to Paul Kingsleys relatives door to tell of this. Perhaps he changed his name while in prison.  After a year or so there was a piece in the Spenborough Guardian about Sinclair working with children at holiday camps. This reporter always followed him around.If you find that article it will help you find his name now the reporter will have the info. [HT CR]

If anyone can check that paper/archives  it would be useful. The digital archives only go back to 2006 [HT @snowfaked] so it looks like this lead will need to be followed in physical archives
This information fits in with the information from the biography that previously Sinclair also worked at holiday camps.

More re newspaper archives [HT ?]

If for example you could find the old ‘Green Post’ issues in Leeds for the late 60’s early seventies you MIGHT find a photo of for example Scott Hall Juniors (one of Sinclair’s teams) Usually they put the names of the players under the photo so it would give you names which you might be able to follow up on. That might be the only way to get further leads. I don’t know how long it would take though maybe not as long as some think. The Junior Football section was only one page (P.5 I think) and that’s where the photos were.

    Hi cathy, I noticed the article on Philip longbottom and called the police asking if he involved in my brother abuse the officer said no but I feel he was involved and the police are not being honest with us. thank you Mrs c Reynolds

    We will never understand how sinclair managed to slip threw the net and get to work at pontins holiday campus where families go for their holidays so if anyone knows or has worked with him please let us know. Why wasn’t checks done of this person .

Could anyone tell us did paul knew sinclair threw the scoutmaster was the meeting set up did anyone know about this did paul talk to anyone about this meeting if so don’t be afraid please leave a message we don’t want your name just the truth.
