Paul Heaton Resigns As Sheffield United Patron Over Ched Evans Rape Row | Music News


Pop star Paul Heaton is the latest Sheffield United patron to resign, in order to stand up against the club’s decision to let convicted rapist Ched Evans train with the club. Heaton believes that Evans has the right to rebuild his career, but not in the form of playing for a professional football club, and certainly not one that he has represented and let down in the past. Evans was jailed in April 2012 for his rape conviction, but he only served half of his five year sentence and was officially released last month. Paul Heaton is going to play a gig at Sheffield City Hall and is donating his fee to the Sheffield Rape Crisis Centre.
