When Mo first engaged with Street League at the Street Football sessions in south London, his only interest was to get fit enough to attend football trials when the season commenced. However, our Youth and Community Coach managed to persuade him to join the Academy programme where he could undergo more intense football training whilst gaining qualifications.

Before Street League, Mo had dropped out of university before his final year due to him becoming disillusioned with the course he was studying. During a one-on-one session with our Progressions Coordinator, Mo was advised on the importance of up-skilling and education. He acknowledged that he regretted dropping out of university and was still interested in completing his education but did not want to go back to the same university. Mo was not aware that he would be able to transfer any credits he had previously achieved, so we compiled a list of universities which confirmed that he would be able to transfer his credits to complete his studies. Mo decided to go back univeristy and has started at Greenwich University to complete his studies.
