Roberts hails value of sport in Belfast

Former Premier League striker Jason Roberts was in Belfast recently with his foundation, helping deliver projects aimed at tackling social issues around equality, diversity and inclusion by getting young people involved in sport.

Roberts's feels sport can offer "so many different possibilities," including team work, communication and a healthy lifestyle.

"Sport is universally taken on board as something which can change people's lives", adding it can give them an opportunity to develop themselves on a personal level" says Roberts.

And in the spirit of getting inspired & involved, the Grenada international tried out a new sport when he had a go at hurling.
