Joining the Dragons – Emyr’s story

Emyr Hopkins

emyrI wanted to find a welcoming football club to join as I hadn’t played for a team for about a year and a half. I was openly gay and really into football. I brought my friend Chris with me who had never played football before. The first session I played in I was shocked. There were some really good football players there and I felt comfortable. It was scary and tough but after the first session I felt fine! I went by myself next session and was talking to everybody and playing some really good football. I am so happy I joined and I am now captain of the Dragons! We play at a good standard and people should definitely come and join if you want to play football and make some mates! Gay, bi or straight everybody is welcome!
