Becci Allen, from Tiverton, Devon who was once known as Richard. See swns story SWTRANNY 3 Jan 2013. A 24-stone self-confessed soccer hooligan has turned his back on the macho world of terrace violence – to undergo a SEX CHANGE. Burly Richard Allen, 36, lived for brawling with rival fans at England and Exeter City games and admits he was a die-hard yob. But Richard has shown hooliganism the red card and – after he shed seven stone – has swapped footy shirts for frocks and embarked on a new life — as BECCI.
