Congratulations to Scott Johnson, who has been nominated as Millwall's 'Above & Beyond' supporter for March 2021!
Earlier this year, The Lions asked for nominations of those Lions fans who go out of their way to help others, and Scott - who runs 'The Proper Blokes Club' - is our first featured star.
Promoting men’s mental health and in particular the stigma associated with it, Scott has continued to chat with individuals on a one-to-one basis throughout lockdown, providing support to people of all ages.
The 34-year-old is a fervent Lions fan and has lived and worked in London for his whole lifetime. His work over the last 15 years has been in football as a coach, working with community foundations such as Millwall, Crystal Palace and Chelsea. Scott has worked with children to men’s semi-professional footballers and everything in between.
Scott is seeking to formalise 'The Proper Blokes Club' into an official charity or community interest company to allow him to apply for funding. This will support him by bringing both the work he has done with children and his mental health project together, which will in turn get children and young people talking whilst giving them the tools to be able to deal with their emotions and feelings in a more effective way. Scott believes that by keeping the current project going and moving to a larger scale operation, he will be able to push his vision throughout the country.
On behalf of everyone associated with Millwall, thank you for everything you do, Scott!
