Football fraternity host mentoring scheme

PUNDIT: Crooks

KICK IT Out’s second Leading The Way conference allowed the future decision makers of football to be mentored and advised by those who currently hold the reins.

A diverse mixture of mentees were giving the opportunity to find out how they can build their own careers and continue the good work of the charity.

Among the speakers were Heather Rabbatts CBE – the first black woman to sit on the FA board; Earl Barrett – the former player, now a coach at Stoke City’s academy; and Garth Crooks – former footballer, now a BBC football pundit.

With mentors including; Arsenal Ladies and England footballer, Rachel Yankey; BBC football reporter, Leon Mann; and community leader, Lincoln Moses MBE.

Former Chelsea defender Paul Elliott said: “It is important to make a positive contribution and difference to the future [of the mentees].

“The charity that fights for total inclusion in football once again showed why its work is so important, and why they are supported by the Football Association and the Professional Footballers’ Association among others.”

Also in attendance was PFA chairman, Clarke Carlisle who said: “Where you want to you can make changes and events like this are so important to that.”
