“It’s fantastic to see the impact that sport has had in the school, and how willing the children are to participate outside of school as well.”

After attending the weekly Judgemeadow Skills Centre football session, Diya discussed how much she enjoys working with LCitC Coach, Ed.

“He’s really funny – he teaches a lot of skills and movements, so he makes me really happy,” she explains. “He’s helped me a lot and helped me improve a lot with football.

“When I was little, I used to always watch football. I dreamed that when I grow up, I want to be a footballer – and then the dream came true.”
