FA 150yrs 4

40 years and counting.

Forty years ago Continental Star F.C formerly Villa Star was formed; in a series of interviews to plot the progress made by the club we caught up with General Manager: Lincoln Moses MBE for a brief chat.

How does CSFC 2014 compare to the newly formed CSFC 1975?

Today CSFC is a charitable organisation dedicated to the social development of young people; engaging them through the use of healthy lifestyle activity programmes and associated public education projects. “All of our programmes tend to comprise of a physical activity component, including those geared to attract the special needs community.”┬áMoses went on to say “The organisation’s focus has shifted in recent years to providing more comprehensive, holistic sustainable solutions, as it looks to help tackle critical social issues: offering the youth greater access to employment opportunities; improved child welfare… health and youth development.”

In 1975 CSFC was engaging a hand full of young people on a weekly basis in unstructured football; the primary objective being to play competitive football. ┬áContrast that with CSFC of today and Moses proudly states: “The organisation’s development programmes have reached more than 2,000 participants in the past 12 months, whilst working closely with Government / agencies, mentors, youth leaders, unemployed youth, associations, industry stakeholders, schools, universities and vulnerable communities.”
