“A caring way of looking after those less fortunate Sportspeople who have fallen on hard times in their later years. I hope it will receive maximum support.”
Sir Alex Ferguson CBE
“All sports-lovers have their heroes, and they are always remembered in their prime.
But heroes age. Their skills fade. So does the memory of them.
The Reposm Charity has been established to help and house those who have fallen on hard times, and deserves the support of all those whose lives- including my own- have been enhanced by sport.”
The Rt Hon Sir John Major KG CH
“When people who have been active and consumed with sport fall on hard times, it can be terribly lonely and sad. For every high-flyer there are many further down the scale in professional sport who have worked equally hard for far less reward. It is, therefore, imperative that sporting wealth does not ignore those less fortunate and unable to cope.
The Reposm Sporting Housing Trust aims to give assistance to those in need of a helping hand during their later years. I, and all my colleagues, welcome this initiative of caring for those who are less fortunate.”
David Pleat League Managers Association Board and Hall of Fame member
“In recent times, we have seen the rise of mental health issues amongst our current players, and all the research undertaken by the Rugby Players Association has revealed the fragility of a career in top level sport. This has long been the curse of outstanding sportsmen and women who have not had the support they needed in their darkest hours. The aims of Reposm are fundamental to this ongoing support long after the TV cameras and fans adulation fade in to history. The RPA is fully supportive of this essential project.”
Damian Hopley Chief Executive, Rugby Players Association
“Some of those who have earned their living in professional sport will find that their circumstances change in retirement and they need the support of others to lead a fulfilling life. One of the most important things to us all, is to have the security of a roof over our head. Another is to have the company of like-minded people to share our later years. The Reposm Sporting Housing Trust aims to help achieve both of those objectives for people in need and the League Managers Association is pleased to offer its support.”
Richard Bevan Chief Executive of the League Managers Association
