“It’s a privilege to be asked to be the ambassador for Sussex Schools FA. School football is such an important part of developing young Players into the game whether for amateur or professional levels. I have fond memories of playing for school
And county levels. One thing that always stood out for me was the level of coaching I received and the encouragement to strive to be the best I could be and express myself.”

Dean Hammond



“I’m honoured to be asked to be an Ambassador for Sussex Schools Football Association. School football is a really important start of any footballer’s journey.
I support school football because it was an important part of my football journey and provided me with the opportunity to develop key skills. School football for me was a springboard for further success at Chelsea FC Academy and England. It is a real honour to be able to give something back by encouraging and supporting others.

I have good memories of playing for Brighton Boys and Sussex Schools. An outstanding memory for me was reaching the national finals and playing at Wembley Stadium. During my time playing school’s football I made great friends, one of whom I play with now at Chelsea.

School’s Football is a powerful vehicle for personal growth and development whether you end up playing professionally, as an amateur or choosing another direction or career. I feel strongly that all children should have an equal chance and have access to the coaching and experience that I had as a young boy starting off.”
