Euro on BBC Radio

Chairman Ray Jerome on BBC RadioOn Saturday 7th July Euro Dagenham Chairman Ray Jerome made his radio debut on BBC Radio London's Saturday Sport program hosted by Phil Parry alongside Brentford's Head of Youth Development Shaun O'Connor to discuss the state of English football at grass roots level in light of the national sides latest failure at international competition.

In a thirty minute interview listened to by over half a million Londoners Ray praised the support received from the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham and stressed the importance of instilling good habits and discipline into the youngest of players at the first opportunity.

This allied to improved funding towards coaching courses and education he stated were the key elements to improving the state of the game starting at the "real grass roots" level across the parks and play grounds of the nation's boroughs long before Academy's and professionalism cherry picks the small minority of talent leaving the vast majority of untapped potential undiscovered.

Also on air was U14's player Louie Taylor who interviewed via a radio link reiterated the Euro philosophy implemented by Ray throughout all Euro's teams of "keeping the ball".

In an impressive performance Louie, as commented on by the BBC interviewer, really seemed to have "bought into" the Euro way of how the beautiful game should be played.

In what promises to be the first of a number of high profile appearances by Ray at the highest echelons of English football Euro Dagenham, and the whole of the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham can be rightly proud of one of its favourite and  most popular sons.
