Alf runs a Kick-Boxing and mixed martial arts school in Stacksteads, Lancashire. It's quite a deprived area with a lot of unemployment and not a lot for kids to do after school. He trains children from the age of 4 to adults and instils confidence, discipline and respect in every one of them. He has trained world champions and last year was awarded he regional Pride of Britain Award for his dedication to the community. As an ex-England coach he could have easily decided to move to areas where the job of training future champions was far more lucrative than Rossendale but he chose to stay where his heart is. He picks up the kids from school every day in a mini bus and delivers them home safely, helps kids with behavioural disabilities and was great with our very shy son when we moved to the area and knew no-one. Since going to Alf's he's blossomed. People have grown up here with Alf's training and now send their kids to him. He's well loved and trusted within the village, has a great sense of humour and takes no nonsense. I can't think of anyone I'd rather see carrying the torch.
