We are blessed with mentors who are currently playing in the Premier League, all divisions of the Football League, and the Conference National, considered English football’s 5th tier. They are players who receive expert care and support in all facets of their day to day life and this is where their knowledge and experience can be shared with released players through The Football Family.
Our team of mentors will be introduced over the course of the season in weekly updates as they share their passion and work in the scheme. Some of course ask to remain anonymous, and their work is celebrated and our gratitude is shown during workshops, meetings and events.
Our two original ‘mentors’ are the first to be introduced. It is true to say these players were ‘the football family’ project guinea pigs, and their openness and willingness gave us all the belief this initiative would be a success. Thank you Jack Stephens and Sam McQueen.
