FORMER NORWICH and Newcastle boss Chris Hughton was centre of attention recently when he attended an event hosted by the Black and Asian Coaches Association (BACA). Hughton was on hand for an award ceremony on October 31 at the Black Cultural Archives in Brixton.

Over 100 people joined Hughton, Michael Bennett, head of welfare, Professional Footballers Association, Paul Mortimer, Kick It Out, Lambeth Councillor Jacqui Dyer, Sandra Griffiths, Time to Change campaign lead (African and Caribbean audiences) and Dr Colin King (BACA) to celebrate the achievements of established and newly qualified football coaches from across the country.

A partnership between BACA, Time to Change, the Professional Footballers Association, Kick It Out and Lambeth Council, the event saw Nottingham-based coach Philip Adhi Scott win the BACA coach of the year award.

The sport and mental health week was held in Lambeth to promote greater awareness of mental health stigma in BAME communities and to highlight and how sport can promote mental wellbeing.

It targeted sports coaches, teachers, school children, parents and local residents and worked with hundreds of young people and adults during the week.
