Greenwich FC needs a trophy cabinet!

Over the years Greenwich FC - an Oxleas service user football team - has amassed a few trophies and medals. Now the side is looking for a nice display cabinet to show them off in.

Greenwich Community Psychiatric Nurse, Hamid Ghazzali, helps run the team. He said: “Obviously in the present economic climate there’s not a lot of money about, so if anyone has a spare display cabinet they don’t want anymore we can find a good home for it.”

Recently Greenwich FC won a league organised by the trust and lost in the final of a World Mental Health Day tournament at Millwall FC – even more silverware.

Getting on for almost 20 years with the trust, Hamid currently works in the Greenwich Recovery team at The Heights in Charlton. He went on: “Last season we were runners up in the London-wide Positive Mental Attitude (PMA) League, a seven-a-side competition with 17 teams in it.

Liverpool fan, Hamid, said: “Now we and five other teams have started our own Grassroots League. Football is a great way of keeping fit and it gives those that get involved in the team a real focus in their lives.

“We now have a pool or about 20 players on our books all of whom live in the borough of Greenwich.

“And I would like to say a big thank you to Bridge 86, a local mental health charity working alongside the community in south London. It provides our football kit.”
