Carer Helen has been fostering with Capstone since 2010 and lives in Birmingham. She has looked after a sibling group since August 2011 and because of the interests of one of her LAC she became involved with the St Georges under 10s football team that are based in North Birmingham there vision is to provide a development club to bridge the gap between grassroots and Academy football.
As Helen said this season has seen great success with the boys achieving wins and draws, manager Ray is certain the boys will continue to achieve more success in the future by the boys showing great determination and dedication to the team. They play around the surrounding areas of Birmingham, Lichfield, Walsall, Wolverhampton and Solihull.
Helen commented “The start of the season they were battling teams that had been together a few years getting beat 6-1 and in a few months they have come together as a team with great determination scores are now 4-3. They have fought hard and other coaches are amazed at how they’ve come on. Big thank you to capstone foster care for sponsoring them and the hard work put in by coaches and parents”
Capstone wanted to provide support to Helen and the children as we feel it is important to recognise the dedication of the carers to their children but also to celebrate the success and achievements of our looked after children. We have supported the Local Football Club by sponsoring their team’s kit for the new season, Helen would like to say a special thank you to all of the parents and coaches that continue to motivate the boys to continue to achieve success and stay motivated and dedicated to the team. For the boys themselves well done for the recent wins and keep up the good work.
