About the Author
Tony Kelly [Nyrere Anthony Kelly] is a former professional footballer, who plied his trade in the second, third, and fourth divisions of English football in the nineties, playing for clubs such as Stoke City, Cardiff City, Leyton Orient, Bury FC, Hull City, and Gimonais CK in Sweden. Tony unfortunately fell victim to GAMBLING ADDICTION and lost over £500,000 during the course of his career and life. Tony managed to turn adversity into triumph, beating his demons and starting a new journey preventing others from going down his pathway. Tony is testimony of how you can come out the other side, and his strong, brave, and courageous character has enabled him to be a pioneer in the field of education, awareness, and prevention of problem gambling in the UK. Tony published his first book RED CARD in 2014, and then went on to set up his own organisation, RED CARD GAMBLING SUPPORT PROJECT, an organisation dedicated to promoting gambling awareness and education for young people and is also working with the gambling commission to help reduce gambling harm in the UK. Tony's story is both fascinating and inspiring, and he hopes his story will inspire others, and continue to raise awareness of what is a very serious public health problem, for many years to come.
