Deanne celebrates call up to the Homeless World Cup Squad

by solas

Until this year Solas client Deanne Sansome had never played football, now she’s successfully using the sport to score her own goals!

Deane has been selected to represent Street Football Wales at the forthcoming Homeless World Cup, taking place 29th August – 5th September in Oslo. Back of the net Deanne!!

She was initially encouraged by residents and staff at Clifton Place, Newport to take up the sport, and is so glad she did.  After six months of attending matchdays, training sessions and StreetFootballWales meetings her hard work and sheer commitment has certainly paid off.

Street Football Wales (sfw) and its patron, welsh actor Michael Sheen will appear on Thursday 6th July on the BBC one Show (7pm).  Tune in to hear how the great team from sfw, part of Pobl Group, changes lives through football.

Well done Deanne and good luck for Oslo!
