Dear Parents, Carers & friends of LFS,

On Wednesday 29th May we’ll be at the Pleasance Theatre in Islington for our next Bursary Event! …A private screening of acclaimed feature documentary NEXT GOAL WINS.

About the Film:
In 2001, American Samoa’s football team suffered a record-breaking 31-0 defeat by Australia, becoming known as the world’s worst team. A decade later, still at the bottom of FIFA’s rankings with no wins, they faced the challenge of qualifying for the 2014 World Cup. Enter Dutch coach Thomas Rongen, a maverick who brought hope to the team.

‘Next Goal Wins’ is a documentary about overcoming impossible odds and the true essence of winning in life.

About the Director:
Mike Brett is a long-standing parent at LFS and is a wonderful friend to the club. Mike is a BAFTA-nominated + Emmy & BIFA-winning filmmaker.

LFS Bursary Event
All proceeds from this event will go the LFS Bursary Scheme.

Central to our ethos is that Football is for everyone. Our bursary scheme ensures that financial barriers don’t hinder anyone from playing.
