Salaam from Kevin Coleman – FA Head of Diversity and Equality

‘Stanmore Jaffery’s FC are a model of good  practice for both football clubs and other communities. Your emphasis on safeguarding and children’s development is something sadly lacking from large parts of youth football today. This safe environment coupled with the levels of commitment from community volunteers and an appetite to embrace other communities makes SJFC an overwhelmingly positive environment for children to grow within and for volunteers to contribute. The Salaam Cup is the first of its kind for the community but was delivered with such great organisation and with a real communal feel, the spirit of the event could be felt and shared by everyone who took part and we wish you all the best of luck with the event in future as it encapsulates the power of football.’
