Dunure gala shocker as ‘beat the goalie’ unmasked as recently convicted sex offender


This is the chilling image of a recently convicted sex offender playing football with kids at a community gala.

Child sex offender Jamie Condy was a goalkeeper at a ‘beat the goalie’ attraction at the Dunure summer fun day. He smiles for the camera as children queue up to kick the ball.

Condy avoided jail in April for having sex with two girls aged 13 and 15.

Condy, 22, of Stonecrop Place, Ayr, was branded a danger to the public and added to the sex offenders register.

A five-year sexual offences prevention order (SOPO) bars him from privately communicating with those aged under 16 years.

His court conviction does not prevent him from meeting people in person. But despite his criminal record, he brazenly took on the responsible role at the event in Kennedy Park last month.

The Ayrshire Post took the photograph of Condy, who has not broken any law or breached his SOPO, it is understood.

A visitor to the fun day said: “I can’t believe a ‘beat the goalie’ was a sex offender. It makes a mockery of the sex offenders’ register with him being around kids in such a brazen way.”

Condy confessed to bedding a 13-year-old Troon girl on September 28 last year at an address in Wallacetown, Ayr.

He also pled guilty to repeatedly having intercourse with another 15-year-old girl between June 1, 2014, and January 20 last year in Wallacetown.

Sheriff Carole Cunninghame sentenced him to 140 hours of unpaid work and put him on the sex offenders’ register for two years.

He was tagged for three months and must undergo supervision for two years.

Condy, formerly of Troon, posted a bare torso on his Twitter inviting women to “add him back for more”.

The fun day at Kennedy Park took place in the shadow of Dunure Castle.

A bouncy slide, bottle stall, throw the welly, face painting and dog show were just some of the activities taking place.

A spokeswoman from event organisers – the Kennedy Hall and Park Committee – said she did not wish to comment.
