Youth

The Premier League Kicks winners

West Ham United are helping to reduce anti-social behaviour and offer live-changing opportunities to local youngsters.

Over 450 seven to 19 year-olds are involved with the Premier League Kicks programme each week, which has a long history of using the power of football and the value of sports participation to help hard-to-reach youngsters in some of the most high-need areas.

In addition, more than 5,000 pupils ages 10 to 16 are given opportunities in mentoring and academic support through the Moore Family Foundation.

Now, Hammers first team stars Marko Arnautovic and Jack Wilshere are due to visit a Kicks session in Beckton and act as managers for two teams, using their experience to inspire kids to follow the right path.
