Seventeen-year-old Logan is back on track thanks to Kicks
Logan Swallow, from Gorleston, has made big strides in the right direction, thanks to the Community Sports Foundation and the Premier League Kicks programme.
The weekly Kicks sessions helped to take him off the streets, steer him from trouble and gave him the confidence to pursue his dreams of becoming a coach.

Logan first gave Kicks a go after hearing positive feedback from other participants. He soon became a regular face at the sessions, with part of the appeal being the social aspect. He said: “Kicks always attracts a big crowd. There’s new people to speak to and meet, people my age that I haven’t met before.”
Thanks to the sessions, Logan’s outlook on life is much more positive: “I’m a lot fitter and have now realised what I want to do, which is to get my qualifications and become a coach”.
Logan took the next step with CSF when he enrolled in our Futsal Scholarship Programme, a two-year sports education course that will earn him a Level-3 BTEC Extended Diploma.
He passed the first year of the BTEC, as well as earning his Level One coaching qualification.
Alongside his studies, he now regularly volunteers at CSF events and is a member of staff at Norwich City FC’s Fanzone, the club’s match day entertainment zone for supporters.
