Gambling - a footballer's story

The effect of his gambling addiction on not only his football career, but mental health, finances and family, were described by Scott Davies to Year 12 students today. Mr Davies, who is now manager of Slough Town, estimates losing over £200,000 whilst gambling, an addiction he overcame in 2015. He warned students of how quickly a gambling habit can spiral out of control and said: “Don’t think you can deal with the problem yourself”, urging them to speak out if they are concerned about themselves or a friend.
