A former football club chairman has been jailed after pleading guilty to a catalogue of abuse on two young boys who were between 10 and 12 at the time.
Flavin was jailed for more than six years
Former teacher Chris Flavin, 55, of Manorbier, Pembrokeshire, was chairman of Gordano Valley Giants in Portishead, after setting up the club in the 1980s.
He was jailed at Bristol Crown Court on Friday for six years and nine months.
One of his victims told the police: "He was like a father figure to me. But he was very controlling."
Judge Julian Lambert told Flavin: "You were in a position of trust. But you defiled two young boys. You took out your perverted sexual pleasure on them.
"You stole part of their childhood which cannot be replaced."
The court had heard that Flavin had been a popular figure at the club.
He had previously pleaded guilty to charges of indecent assault and buggery.
