Posted on 30th August 2022 at 17:18
The Tigers Trust is proud to deliver the NCS programme each summer to teenagers across Hull and East Riding.
16-year-old Joseph Morton participated in NCS this summer and he is certain that he has come away from the programme with lifelong memories.
He said: “The experience was one I won’t forget, and I am so glad I did it.
“It allowed me the opportunity to learn new skills, have a great time with my friends and to meet new people.
"I have learnt to have more confidence in talking to new people and I also overcame some fears, especially with heights.
"I also learnt things such as basic survival skills like making a shelter, making a fire and cooking."
"I think taking part in NCS will help me a lot as I can take a lot of what I have learnt into my future life including my social life and potential jobs or education."
Joseph also volunteers his time as a Match Ball Assistant for Hull City meaning his engagement with the Trust shows no indication of ending soon.
Joseph started this role on Saturday 2nd of October 2021 as the Tigers soared to a 2-0 win over Middlesbrough at the MKM Stadium.
His reliability and commitment since starting has seen him take on further responsibility, such as placing the stools out pre-game and informing other Match Ball Assistants of their positions.
Speaking about this experience, he said: “I really enjoy it and love having an important role during the games.
“It can be a nervous experience when you first do it, so I like to help anybody that is new to it and help to make them feel welcome.”
