The programme, which is funded by Trinitas Group and the Wanderers Foundation, brings together over 140 participants each week to Wanderers Football Park to make football more accessible to the local Western Sydney African community.

Nexus Soccer Solutions was founded by foundation Wandercrew member Angok Bol who started the program to help teach the fundamentals of football in a safe and fun environment.

Wanderers players Bernie Ibini and Kosta Grozos visited the programme on Wednesday night to give back to the local community, something which Ibini experienced during his younger days as a grassroots player.

"The season may be over for us, but it's important for us to go out and give back to the community," said Ibini.

"I remember when I was at that age and it was always nice to have professional players come down to our local field so to give back is always a nice thing to do.

"Football is a great sport to play and it's a team sport, so it teaches you little things like working as a team and having those fundamentals are vital to a young players football development."

The Wanderers Football Park is the home of not only the club's A-League, W-League and Academy teams but also now the new home of the Nexus Soccer Solutions Programme making the weekly sessions so much more special said Grozos.

"When I was coming through the Academy ranks, we didn't have these kinds of facilities so to see so many kids come out and what the club is doing for the Nexus Soccer Solutions Programme makes me really happy," said Grozos.

"It's always good to come out into the community, especially at our HQ, having fun and playing football with all their friends."
