Think Outside The Blocks


Kasanga was released from prison 4 years ago. As a child he represented his county at football but got in with the wrong crowd and became involved in a gang, ending up spending 8 years in prison. Founding Hackney Wick FC gave him a new purpose in life, and a mission to inspire the young people on the estate where he grew up to channel their energy into sport as a positive outlet. Hackney Wick FC has a men and women’s team as well as a youth academy, and Kasanga’s boundless energy combined with Kohl’s sensitive direction, proves that football has the power to unite people with the mantra “Think outside the Blocks”.
