Players and Staff Welfare: Gangs, Knifes & County Lines Support 

.In some parts of England, football clubs have players who are linked to gangs and County Lines, who may be at risk of radicalisation or who routinely carry knives or other offensive weapons


."Radicalisation is defined as ‘the process by which a person comes to support terrorism and extremist ideologies associated with terrorists.’"(source: Counter-Terrorism Strategy 2018) 

County Lines

“County Lines is a term used to describe gangs and organised criminal networks involved in exporting illegal drugs into one or more importing areas (within the UK), using dedicated mobile phone lines or other forms of ‘deal line’. They are likely to exploit children and vulnerable adults to move (and store) drugs and money and they will often use coercion, intimidation, violence (including sexual violence) and weapons.” (source: HM Government Serious Violence Strategy April 2018).
