PL Kicks participant, Angel gets involved in more sessions by volunteering to referee matches.

Displaying his dedication to the community session, Angel arrives early and volunteers to help referee the younger group’s matches.

Discussing his future, Angel reveals that he would like to get into Leicester City’s Academy, but also really wants to continue his education.

“Jack teaches me new stuff and indicates me towards being good – he’s helped me a lot,” says Angel. “I didn’t have anyone to play football with so I started coming and got know a lot of people.

"It’s amazing. I think it’s really cool the opportunities that they give us to meet new people.”
