ALPHA UNITED RECEIVE QUEEN'S AWARD

2 October 2019

Bradford-based junior football team Alpha United will be honoured with a Queen's Award for Voluntary Service on Saturday. 

The club, founded by Mohammed Waheed in 2013 have enjoyed huge success since their establishement, with multipule awards and television appearances for their services. 

The side have worked closely with anti-racism organisation Kick It Out - after a number of their young players fell victim to racial abuse. 

And Alpha have now been recognised in ther efforts to allow more Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic (BAME) children the opportunity to play grassroots football, without the fear of being racially targeted. 

The team will be presented with their award on Saturday (October 5) morning - following their training session - by the Lord Lieutenant of Yorkshire. 

The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service aims to recognise outstanding work by volunteer groups to benefit their local communities.

It was created in 2002 to celebrate the Queen’s Golden Jubilee. Winners are announced each year on the anniversary of the Queen’s Coronation.

As Alpha United Juniors Football Club continues to grow, they remain on the lookout for new players and coaches.
