Hindu Society: Football Co-ordinator

Hi, I'm Sohum and I'd like to be your football co-ordinator!

Joining HSoc was a great idea and it has given me the opportunity to meet and make friends with many people and I'd like to join the committee to be involved in more than just sports events. Having played in London Zone, where we narrowly missed out on penalties to getting to the next round, to training hard and with renewed vigour to come second at Nationals, being part of HSoc football has been an awesome experience and I would like to continue that forward. For those who know me, you'll know that I am extremely passionate about football, and not only football but sports in general and you'll see me at Kho training too! I believe I can take this passion and implement it into HSoc football training sessions and matches to make it an enjoyable experience for all. Outside of Uni, I am part of the Youth Wing of the Sathya Sai Organisation and have taken part in many sports days arranged by them to teach core human values to kids playing sports whilsr also having fun.

As co-ordinator I would like to spread the word to more people about HSoc football to gather larger turnouts at training sessions, regardless of what ability level you may be to give more people a chance to enjoy themselves. I will also be more proactive into arranging matches with other unis to give more games to the regulars.
