As we approach the end of the year, all of us here at Kinetic would like to take this opportunity to thank all our supporters and followers for your continued belief, encouragement and patronage during 2019. Without your support it would be virtually impossible for us to provide the educational and sports services we deliver within the south London area.
There have been so many highlights this year including establishing a connection with Bath University and strengthening our ties with several US colleges, which has enabled us to offer higher education pathways for our students both here in the UK and the US, in turn enabling them to progress their sporting careers while still continuing their education.
Another highlight this year was forming the Kinetic Youth Forum, which is helping to shape and develop the academy programme. In addition, the Youth Forum has been invited to participate in some high-profile events to help raise awareness of youth violence and illustrate how football can be used to engage and inspire at risk young people to seek alternative paths to violence.
During 2019 we were also delighted to have reported on several of our alumni signing with professional teams around the UK with some even being called up to play for their national sides. Most recently, Croydon FC Youth team has made it through to the 3rd round of the FA Youth Cup where they will play away to Wigan Athletic on Tuesday, 17 December. Fingers crossed for the win, which will be the icing on the cake for 2019!
Lastly, we would like to wish everyone of our supporters and followers a very merry Christmas and a prosperous new year. We look forward to working with you again in 2020.
