Dulwich Hamlet Football Club treated over 60 FBB Schools participants to free tickets for their 3-3 draw over Metropolitan Police FC on November 29th.
FBB are Dulwich Hamlet’s official charity partner for the 2016/17 season and students from 7 of our schools were rewarded for their commitment to the programme with tickets for the match.
At half-time a lucky few of our participants also received an extra reward for their hard work. Dulwich Hamlet granted them the privilege of walking onto the Champion Hill pitch to receive an FBB trophy.
FBB Schools participant Sienna (pictured right) from Archbishop Lanfranc Academy said “It was a fantastic trip and I would love to go again! I was very nervous getting my award but felt proud of myself”
FBB Youth Voices Lorenzo said “I’ve never been to watch a game outside of the top 5 European leagues and I can now confirm that I will be no longer attending those games. The atmosphere was amazing and it made me think about what football really is.”
Football Club Committee Chairman Liam Hickey said: “It was wonderful to see so many FBB youngsters enjoying themselves & making so much noise to keep warm on such a cold night. This evening showed just how a link with a charity partner like ‘Football Beyond Borders’ means so much more than just raising a few pennies for their coffers.”
