On behalf of Ashley and I and all the partners/ supporters involved in our Stephen Lawerence Community Football Rematch hosted on Saturday at Barking Fc, we wanted to sincerely thank you all.
We are very grateful that Rob Obrien who is the club Chairman of Barking Fc, kindly allowed us to use his wonderful facilities to host the rematch. The club showed us great hospitality in good support of the occasion and the Stephen Lawerence Foundation.
On Saturday there was a warm and vibrant community atmosphere as Yarnee Fc and SL Kings Fc, played with an amazing spirit on a very hot day, where it was humbling to see so many young people from various post codes and diverse backgrounds coming together in unity in loving memory of Stephen Lawerence. Thank you Jack for refereeing the match supported by your two linesmen and women.
Well done to Yarnee Fc for narrowly winning 1-0, after a very even and hard fought two matches played. They are the Stephen Lawerence Day 2022 Football Champions. However all the young people who took part for Stephen, were Champions of the community! Great fighting spirit by SL Kings who represented their club and families with pride.
As the Co Founders of Kickoff@3, Ashley and I are extremely proud we were able to work closely with you all to deliver a wonderful two events.
To end we have to give our final thank you and special mention to Tony and Sophie, for attending on the day to produce amazing drone film footage and photography. Tony’s drone photos are attached, which are phenomenal!
Over the coming days when Tony and Sophie are both free, they will be working hard together to edit the drone footage and official photos. I believe there are 1600 photos to edit. Once completed everything will be shared between us all, so you can freely use on social media and your various websites.
For now thank you team and we look forward to working again with you all again soon.
We were honoured to support the Stephen Lawerence Foundation again from last year, with our on line music event and awards ceremony hosted. The movement will not stop to create change by all working together.#BecauseOfStephen #LiveYourBestLife
