TAMHI founder Joe Donnelly had a meeting with Tony Adams and Sporting Chance Director Colin Bland. TAMHI sought some advise from Colin about the challenges that Sporting Chance had to overcome, and also the reception to their training programmes. These guys utilise ex players – vital in terms of engagement. TAMHI champions that the distribution of the message is vital; coaches and those involved in sport can relate better to people from a similar background – this connection breaks downs barriers.
Joe was in awe of Tony, but managed to have a brief chat about using the power of sport to challenge behaviours and to tackle social issues. Respect must be given to both Colin and Tony for giving TAMHI founder a bit of time, and a priceless experience. Note that the Tucker kit for the annual memorial tournament is based on Arsenal style kit – to to meet an Arsenal legend was that extra bit special.
