Western Sydney Wanderers FC hosted their first session for over 140 participants from Nexus Soccer Solutions at Wanderers Football Park as part of the Wanderers Foundation’s ongoing work in the community.
Nexus Soccer Solutions was established by foundation Wandercrew member Angok Bol who started the program to make football more accessible to grassroots participants in the Western Sydney African community.
Supported by the Wanderers Foundation, the group was provided with an experience at the Wanderers football Park, as well as coaching and playing kits and $15,000 worth of equipment and supplies to support the incredible work Bol has been doing in the region.
Western Sydney Wanderers CEO John Tsatsimas said the club was proud to support Bol and Nexus Soccer Solutions’ work in the community.
“We’re a community-based club and a club that wants to open opportunities for everyone to play football,” said Tsatsimas.
“Angok Bol has volunteered and worked with our club since our inception and we are proud to be taking the next step of the journey with him to elevate and support his program.
“We are so proud to house Nexus Soccer Solutions here at our Football Park. Nexus are one of the first community groups we are integrating into our football program and facility, and we’re looking forward to welcoming many more.”
Angok Bol said this was just the beginning of a special relationship with Nexus Soccer Solutions and the Wanderers.
“I’m so excited to see this happening, to see the kids coming out and given the chance to play at the facility,” said Angok.
“I would like to thank Western Sydney Wanderers for all the hard work they have put into building this facility and for the kids to have this facility in their backyard. This is just the beginning with more to come on the way.
“Especially, I want to thank CEO John (Tsatsimas) as he has helped us a lot since we started this program. This is what football is all about, coming together as a community. One team and one club.
“We’re just a small community that loves to play football, what kids need is a ground and equipment so to see this happening and to be done by my club the Wanderers is incredible.”
