Ex-pro raising awareness of gambling addiction ahead of the Euros

The European Championships get underway this Friday and football fever is creeping in.

However, there are many who when football coverage reaches its height, can be devastating.

Tony Kelly is a former professional footballer who became the youngest play to ever play for Bristol City at the age of 16 back in the 80s.

He went on to feature for a number of London sides including Leyton Orient. But it was at Dulwich Hamlet, still early in his career, when he fell into gambling.

His addiction led him to a £200,000 pound bankruptcy file, the loss of his home, cars and his relationship.

He’s looking to raise awareness of gambling addiction ahead of the Euros, and spoke with Henry.
