A return to ITV's English Football League Highlights programme for new season
19 August 2023
Tonight, I made an in-vision return to ITV's English Football League Highlights programme as the new season gathers pace.
Again reporting on the work of an EFL club in their local community, I visited Salford City's official charity, Foundation 92, to explore their new Mobile Youth Zone, a safe space for young people to socialise and learn.
Now operating seven days a week, the free service bus provides education and a range of activities. The scheme has been designed to help tackle risk-taking and anti-social behaviour while also raising awareness of drug and alcohol misuse and healthy meals.
It's always a real honour to meet the heroes of our communities who are empowered by both the reach and financial might of football. I wouldn't be doing the career I'd be doing now if it wasn't for youth workers and opportunities provided to me.
