On March 13 BYSA
will be hosting a dinner with Liverpool FC legends John Barnes, John Aldridge and Didi Hamman where Mr Khattak will receive his award from Paul Sabapathy, Lord Lieutenant of the West Midlands, on behalf of The Queen.
BYSA began with ten children; and when their numbers steadily increased a group of volunteers decided to team up and make a difference in the Small Heath area to help occupy youngsters and keep them out of trouble.
Since its conception, the BYSA has made a huge impact within the local community and has successfully promoted football coaching and educational classes.
The BYSA also mentors kids, provides 24-hour advice and we have found a lot of our kids have moved on to sports careers by becoming teachers and coaches.
