ALAN ZHENG-PHOON LAU
Founder & Chairman
"Like many children, my dream as a kid was to play football for England! There was always a barrier in Traditional Chinese and Asian culture where academic excellence was encouraged more. Times have changed with the second and third generation immigrants in the UK and I feel that we should be creating the space and perception that football, and others sports, is not only a viable vocation but also helps with health and well-being, as well as helping culturally and integration in society."
Alan has been a keen footballer all his life, playing in amateur leagues in the UK and abroad and has an FA Level 1 Coaching Badge. He is also a member of the London Chinese Community Centre Management Committee and is currently their Sports Committee Chairman.
