Enfield Borough back Kevin Lisbie’s anti knife crime campaign

By Dominique Stafford in Football

ENFIELD BOROUGH Football Club linked up with former professional footballer Kevin Lisbie to support an anti knife crime event he organised.

The event was put on to raise awareness of the growing threat of knife crime in London and to encourage young people to take a positive path in life.

There was an 11-a-side football match as part of the event, and Enfield Borough provided the kit for both sides.

Former Charlton Athletic star Lisbie called upon a number of other ex-pros to take part in the match, with Leon Constantine, Jon Fortune, Shaun Batt and Fitz Hall all featuring heavily.

“When I heard about Kevin’s anti knife event I was keen to get involved,” said Enfield Borough co-founder Aaron Archer. “As a youth I lost a friend to knife crime, so it’s something I feel very strongly about and it’s something our youth need to stop.

“I want this club to be active in the community, so I’m sure we’ll be involved in other events and campaigns in the future.”

Lisbie added: “I want to say a big thank you to Enfield Borough Football Club for sponsoring anti-knife football game, raising awareness on a big issue. I also appreciate all the work they do mentoring young kids and passing on all their experience.”
