Richard’s Story

One Saturday morning, at the end of 2017, walking across the park next to the community centre, I saw Richard coaching football with 7 Young People. Richard, who lives in the local community and has years of experience coaching and teaching Young People, shared his vision with me of bringing together Young People from our diverse communities together, using football as a tool. He told me that his newly started Football School is called Lionheart Football School of Excellence.
