FC Not Alone headed down to a Footy Addicts match taking place at Powerleague Nine Elms to have a good old kick about and to discuss all things Mental Health with ex Premier League Striker Leon McKenzie.
On Thursday 2nd May, BBC aired a short interview between Leon McKenzie and FC Not Alone about directed by Ben McCarthy for The BBC’s ‘Premier League Show. The interview was also re aired later that week on Saturday’s Football Focus.
Working with The BBC and in particular Ben McCarthy and Leon McKenzie was a very positive experience. We felt this interview really got to the bottom of what FC Not Alone is about and what we’re trying to achieve with our platform.
Leon McKenzie having been very vocal in his experience with mental illness is a shining light to the footballing world and it was a pleasure to this interview with him.
The piece is no longer available on BBC iPlayer but we managed to get it uploaded on YouTube which you can see here:
