Williams is also delighted to be selected and added, “The past 18 months have been challenging for so many people in our community and I’ve seen first-hand how big a role AITC plays in people’s lives locally.
“Everyone at the club can be proud of what AITC has achieved and I am extremely proud be an ambassador for the charity again this season.”
AITC works with tens of thousands of children and young people each year. This include providing opportunities for everyone to play football including people with a disability, working in schools to improve numeracy, literacy, and life skills, and delivering programmes to help people lose weight and get physically active.
The charity’s Chief Executive Matt Dorn is looking forward to working with Adam and Victoria throughout the season. He said, “as we help our communities to recover from the pandemic and use the power of football to change people’s lives, the support of players like Victoria and Adam is fantastic for the charity. Their engagement with our programmes and participants during the season will be a huge inspiration to everyone we work with on our programmes.”
