helal-2Continental Star was founded 40 years ago to create opportunities for those marginalised by life’s circumstances who longed to exhibit their football skills at grassroots level and beyond, and the latest addition to the fold is no different.

Helal Albaarini arrived at Continental Star via his home land of Syria, with limited spoken English, but was able to communicate with the manager using Arabic.  Football is a universal language and it hasn’t taken Helal long to settle in at Star and he has quickly begun to pick up some of the football parlance, along with the local colloquial terms used by today’s youths.

Helal is a popular member of the squad and all those at CSFC wish him well for the future.
