Proud to be a part of Sky Sports News' EFL Week of Action coverage

6 November 2023

My report for Sky Sports News about Wrexham's contribution to the English Football League's (EFL) Week of Action has been broadcast.

The week aims to showcase the impact the 72 EFL clubs have on their communities. I myself headed to Wrexham to speak to striker Paul Mullin about how they are supporting local autistic young people.

Mullin's son was identified as being autistic earlier this year and so attended an indoor football session especially designed for autistic people by the Wrexham AFC Community Trust. Reflecting on teammate James McClean's recent assessment, he explained "a lot can be achieved even if you are autistic."

Being autistic myself, I really enjoyed my trip to Wrexham's autistic-friendly kickabout. The young people were clearly thrilled to meet their team's star striker and I know how days like this can provide such a boost to an often isolated group of people.
