Her Story: Meet AFC Leyton's Muslim Players and Coaches
If there ever was a dream of equality, it certainly feels close at AFC Leyton. With hundreds of female players from varying different cultures and religions, we all operate as one club under the banner of AFC Leyton.
This Ramadan, we celebrate our fierce and skillful female Muslim players and their Muslim coaches who perhaps unbeknowst to them are not only role models and trail blazers, but athletes who provide the much needed representation in grassroots football. Some chosing to wear a hijab and dressed from head to toe in club colours, others in the standard club kit, these footballing females are all breaking down boundaries and stereotypes whilst playing the game that they love.
