On behalf of the SJFA “One Team”, I am honoured to inform the community of Stanmore Jafferys Football Academy nomination in the 4th Asian Football Awards. We have been nominated for the “The FA For All Award” category . The event will be held at the Grange Hotel St Pauls, on the evening of the 14th November. The Asian Football Awards have been created to reward and recognise Asians in the football industry. The aim is to provide a platform for Asians to promote their skills whilst also showing the footballing world that coaches, volunteers, players, administrators and fans are Asians who simply love the game.
The basis for the nomination was the Salaam Cup. In July this year, SJFA extended Salaam (Peace) to communities and clubs across the UK, welcoming members and guests with the message of peace, unity, respect and harmony.
The 2017 edition of Salaam Cup hosted 57 teams from 11 communities with 500+ players displaying an exceptionally high level of football. The community will recall the football tournament included a family fun day with stalls and activities for children creating a festival of fun for all age groups. The event brought families together from all faiths in the name of peace, unity, respect & harmony.
The beauty and beacons of the Salaam Cup were the 100+ Salaamteers who provided an integral role leading to the success of the event. This would not have been possible without their dedication, enthusiasm and willingness.
We have reached this stage and a further milestone with the support of the whole community. I am sure we can count on your continuous support on this exciting journey.
We will keep the SJFA Family updated on the outcome of this nomination.
Salaams & Duas
Mohammed Valjy – SJFA Chair
