Paul Scarfi voted BBC Wales' Sports Unsung Hero 2013

A volunteer who helps run football for homeless people and others at a low ebb has won BBC Cymru Wales' Sports Unsung Hero award.

Former soldier Paul Scarfi is a volunteer coach for Street Football Wales, and manages the Welsh Dragons team which has competed at the Homeless World Cup.

Geraint Edwards nominated Paul and told the BBC: "I was homeless, taking loads of drugs... he helped me get off everything. If it wasn't for him, I wouldn't be where I am now."
