Hampshire FA to hold FA Community Roadshow
Hampshire FA is holding the ‘Hampshire FA Community Roadshow’ at Southampton FC (Terry Paine suite) on Tuesday 29th July at 6pm.
The evening promises to impress, with a variety of guest speakers present on the night including:
• Ex England U17 head Coach Louis Fidler
• FA inclusion Officer Jonathan Mills
• FA regional coach mentor Steve Smithies
• Hampshire FA directors and our special guest of the evening Reuben Agboola (Ex saints player).
The guest speakers will be preparing speeches highlighting the effects of social inclusion and other barriers to participation, which are commonly faced within society but more notably, the effects it has within football. It is pivotal to identify such barriers so that football can continue as a socially inclusive sport which promotes the ethos of ’equality for all’ regardless of race, gender, ethnicity etc.
Events such as this are also a great opportunity for networking with local representatives and they hope that with the information and insights provided from the night, they can also become an informative tool for how we can continue to shape and sustain positive ideologies within football.
A finger buffet will also be present for all the guests on the evening. Should you wish to attend the event, please email Matthew York (Football Development Officer for Education & Equality) Matthew.York@HampshireFA.com or alternatively you can contact him by phone: 01256 853016 and confirm your attendance by Friday 25th July.
