Greenwich FC needs players

Greenwich FC story

Greenwich Community Psychiatric Nurse and Care Coordinator, Hamid Ghazzali, needs your help. He’s looking for more service users in the borough to join the five-a-side football team he helps run – Greenwich FC.

An 18 year veteran with Oxleas, Hamid has spent the last six years working at The Heights in Charlton and presently works with the Greenwich Recovery Team. He now wants some fresh new players to improve on last season’s second place position in the Positive Mental Attitude League.

Liverpool fan, Hamid, 44, said: “Last season was a great achievement as it is a London-wide league. However, I believe we can do one better. Football is a great way of keeping fit and it gives those that get involved in the team a real focus in their lives.”

This was backed up by service user Robert Tubbs who told One Oxleas: “It’s good to be part of something that is growing. Originally there were just three of us but now we’re getting new players coming in. Consistency is what we want and we need players that are going to turn up every week.”

If you are a Greenwich service user that might be interested in playing the beautiful game call Hamid on 020 8269 4177 or email
