Sports Interest in General:

It is my inherent belief that sport in general not only provides personal benefits to an individual but has the potential to promote islamic values and increase unity within our community at large. Since its creation Stanmore Jafferys is well known to have made outstanding progress implementing sporting activities for the community by laying an outstanding foundation to how sports should be run and governed. Over the course of my life thus far I have been involved in various sports however since I started cycling two years ago I see greater value, interest within our community and impact potential to do good than any other sport today. Therefore with Allah's blessings, I am looking forward to expand on our current cycling foundations iA.
