The Hereford Lads Club was founded in 1925 for under privileged boys by Mr J. Mackay. He envisaged that the club would provide young boys with the means to become men through sport. In truth it provided much more, with gentlemanly conduct and good sportsmanship being two of the important qualities being taught to the young men of Hereford Lads Club.
Today, The Hereford Lads Club is still a fantastic example of community spirit brought together through sport.
This film is about their lesser known yet equally inspirational and talented girls team.
"We have had a lot of interest in the short film and this has been from new starters to the coaches. Being able to post it onto social networking sites has helped raise our profile." Jason Watkins - LADS Coach.
