Andrew Barnbrook, 37, paid £8 per minute for 'webcam services’ and blew a total of £240,000 on cocaine and online gambling.

He also spent £50,000 and £70,000 on shopping trips to Harrods, Chanel handbags and champagne bars with web-cam girl Victoria Sinclair.

Barnbrook was a finance director for semi-professional side AFC Fylde when he transferred £239,900 to his personal bank account.

Judge Andrew Jeffries QC, sentencing, said: “You stuck the money up your nose, drank in champagne bars, befriended a live sex cam model, bought lavish gifts for her and paid for her time.”

He was suspended from his job in January of last year.  It was at that time that these improprieties came to light.

From the Manchester Evening News:

In a victim impact statement, Stuart King, the chief operations officer for Tangerine Holdings, which owns AFC Fylde, said the club was only able to stay afloat as it was part of a larger group and could borrow money to plug the hole in the accounts.

He said: “The future of those employed by the business would have no doubt been dramatically affected, with AFC Fylde potentially going into liquidation and all those employees would have been left without a job had the not been able to borrow the money.”

Barnbrook pleaded guilty to theft by abuse of position and was jailed for 32 months.
