Introducing our PL Kicks award winner, Chandni Kaur
The Premier League Chariatble Fund anniversary awards are a celebration of the incredible impact of football clubs and individuals in their local communities over the last decade.
These awards give us the chance to celebrate some of the great achievements and transformational journeys made by people who have participated in PLCF funded projects.
We're delighted to announce that Chandni Kaur, has been selected as our Premier League Kicks award winner.
Chandni first came to our Premier League Kicks sessions after the transition from the Premier League Girls programme. Chandni was very eager to learn and develop with her technical ability and it was clear that she had taken a liking to freestyle football. Since Chandni's first kicks session she has attended 100% of all sessions at Fairfield & Lockleaze, pre & post Lockdown, totalling over 50 hours of contact time since PL Girls moved across into PL Kicks. During this time we've seen her grow into a leader of her Fairfield Group and regularly volunteer within this session, whether its running warm ups or actively engaging in helping her peers when learning new things.
Throughout Chandni's journey with us we have seen multiple demonstrations of Kicks outcomes, from having improved physical and mental wellbeing from the continuous activity, to developing her skills and knowledge within football. Chandni's journey has replicated Kicks core outcomes, her engagement within our sessions has inspired her to pursue to further her studies with Bristol Rovers Community Trust by applying to enrol onto the Post-16 BTEC Programme.
PL Kicks lead, Nathan Hallett-Young, said: "It's been great to see Chandni develop over the last few years. She has a fantastic attitude and the PL Kicks sessions have been instrumental in her progress as a player and as a person. We look forward to working with her in the years to come."
