Towards the end of 2019, Youngers was formed by Coach Warren. His goal was to help change young lives in his neighbourhood through playing football.
"From a young age football has always been a passion for most kids in this area. Personally, It has played a huge part in my life in terms of communicating, Co-operating and also supporting my peers. Being on the pitch was the perfect platform to build my confidence and it gave me the mental strength to conquer a lot of day to day challenges that came with life as I got older. Football built me, its my foundation. now I'm older I've realised it even more"
Warren, along with the other coaches at YFC wants football to play a similar role for the kids in their community and beyond. Football, he says, brings people from different backgrounds together and teaches them lessons that they can keep forever.
"When I first played football as a kid, I made a lot of new friends instantly. I'm 29 now, and some of those friends I still have today."
"Football has always helped to bring a bit of life into the Community, especially in Walthamstow. Its a great way for you to express yourself. Being from Walthamstow we like to express ourselves, whether its from Sport or Art, entertainment Anything."
"In my opinion, the most creative things recently have come out of London and other parts of the UK.. and that's all I want my Youngers to do, be themselves, be creative don't be shy to show the world who you are"
''Youngers football club's the place where you're going to develop, grow and be ready show people your true potential. We have to dare to be great"
Over the last year he has expanded Youngers From 7 kids to more than 40. And next season, the club will be entering all their age groups into leagues for the first time 🥳🎉
