“I’m Sarah Lamptey, the director of The Mighty Match C.I.C, and I ran a football tournament and family day on 7th May 2012 at Tooting and Mitcham Community Sports Club for young people across London.
Lionel, founder of BiG was instrumental in the running of the day. He organised and executed a challenging coaching session with the 190 young people in attendance brilliantly.
His energy, enthusiasm and drive was infectious, and through his encouragement and care, Lionel provided a safe, warm environment in which the young people could learn without inhibitions.
Thank you so much, and I look forward to working with you again soon.”
Sarah Lamptey, The Mighty Match C.I.C Director
“Lionel’s hard work, professionalism, and complete and utter enthusiasm for helping, supporting and empowering young people was pivotal in ensuring the Mighty Match achieved its goals of promoting positivity and prosperity through team sports.
His contribution in the build-up to the tournament was central to the day running smoothly. His attention to detail was epitomised by an hour long training session for 200 young people that Lionel had pre-planned and executed with what seemed like incredible ease.
Lionel managed to command the complete respect of all those he worked with – whether it be the other coaches who he directed or the young people he coached – whilst also fostering a very welcoming, inclusive and, most importantly, enjoyable atmosphere.
It would be a pleasure to work with Lionel again.”
Marcus Foley, The Mighty Match Assistant Director
