25 years on and “Kick It Out” remain at the forefront of fighting racism and discrimination in the game at all levels.
Some of the volunteers pause for the traditional photo, just before they continue to box up the food that they have collected, ready to be distributed on Christmas eve to local families and organisations that work with those in need.
A big thanks goes out to those at CSPAN who have helped to make it all possible, and special mention to Dianne who has organised the volunteers and made links with other organisations so that the food can get to those who need it most, all in time for Christmas.
The U21s were victorious yesterday after a closely contested match against Rushall. Star controlled the game from start to finish, perhaps giving their best performance of the season to date. The next round sees the U21s coming up against Tamworth who are managed by ex-Continental Star player and manager, Gary Smith.
Chairman, Keith congratulates the boys as they leave the pitch.
The English FA decided to recognise the achievements of its all time record goal scorer, Wayne Rooney, and Stars were fortunate enough to be there to witness it all. A group of 60 adults and young people ventured down to the home of football, Wembley, on Thursday to watch Rooney play in his final game for his country. For many of those in attendance it was their first visit to the national stadium.
Continental star ambassador and Brentford play maker, Romaine Lawyers, is currently in the form of his career, attracting the attention of many of the bigger teams. Click on the picture to read his thoughts about how he got started and how he is thankful to Continental Star stalwart, Dianne Lawyers, his mom.
Football is full of cliches but today the football community truly has lost one of its pioneers! Cyriĺle Regis paved the way for so many black footballers playing today. He endured racial taunts and overcame them so much so that many playing today couldn’t even fathom; rising to the top of his profession, representing his country at a time when even a section of his own fans booed him.
Cyriĺle truly was a gentleman that paved the way. We at Continental Star benefited from his support over the years and we are both grateful and thankful.
All those involved at Continental Star send out our condolences to the Regis family.
