PUPILS put their pitch skills to the test against a team hoping to become part of a national squad.
Participants in a Foundation of Light programme helped to develop the footballing skills of around 60 Year 8 pupils at Farringdon Sports College.
The Foundation of Light team are hoping to become part of the England squad at this year’s Homeless World Cup by working towards a Level 1 Award in Sports Leadership qualification.
The Homeless World Cup programme is run in partnership with the Homeless FA who use football to help the homeless.
The Foundation of Light, the registered charity of SAFC, is running one of only nine training centres in the country with attendees hoping to gain a place in the English national squad which will attend the Homeless World Cup in Poland in September.
The five week programme sees participants undertake a Level 1 Award in Sports Leadership qualification.
