June has dedicated years to sport. In 2000 she set up Abraham Moss Warriors, where she is club chair person and spends around 45 hours a week volunteering, (coaching 6 nights and fundraising on the seventh). June has been praised for steering youngsters away from crime and has been a guest at Downing Street. June forced the FA to change its rules because Muslim players on her teams were unable to take pitch-side drinks during Ramadan.June and the club have gone on to be kite marked by the FA, with the club recently runner-up in the national Respect awards. In 2009 she was recognised as the Manchester City Council Citizen of the Year, and also won the Pride of Manchester award for her voluntary work. She won the unsung hero award and the Be Inspired award at the Greater Manchester Sports Awards in 2010 where in the same year she was nominated for an MBE by colleagues from Temple Primary School, in Cheetham Hill, where she works as a learning mentor.June is an inspiration and when invited by the FA to go and meet the national team, her response was she would love to if she could also bring her under 12s team - they all had a great day out!!!!
