Enzo Valente is a shining light in the local community of Farley Town, Luton and is responsible for the creation of two local sides that have enjoyed remarkable success this season.
Having originally encouraged local children to attend his free midweek training sessions, he was able to form and manage two sides that now compete in the Premier Division and Reserve division of the Luton Beds South District League.
Enzo has shown real passion for grassroots football and manages to complete all of the clubs secretarial work in between running his own hair salon. His commitment to the local community has seen many children who were causing trouble on the streets sign up and play weekly football. Since the clubs formed six years ago the clubs have shown remarkable improvements, with a team currently on the brink of winning the Premier Division.
