Sheffield Wednesday star Liam Palmer became the latest player to take on the ‘YES/NO Challenge’ against NCS Graduate Andrew Moore.
Liam, who plays as right-back for The Owls, is no stranger to the NCS programme having been an NCS Ambassador over the past three years and involved in visiting local schools around Sheffield promoting the programme directed at 16-18 year olds to students.
Liam is a part of a series of footballers from South Yorkshire taking on the YES/NO Challenge, a quick fire Q&A game where neither participant can say ‘yes’ or ‘no’, you can watch the latest video below.
Liam said: “I’ve been involved in NCS for a few years and seen first-hand how (young) people can grow in confidence. It’s a crucial stage in people’s development of their mind and it gives them experience to go and try new things and meet new people.”
NCS is a government backed programme established in 2011 to help build a more cohesive, mobile and engaged society. By bringing together young people from different backgrounds for a unique shared experience, NCS helps them to become better individuals, and in turn better citizens.
Over the next 2 months, footballers from the EFL will be going toe-to-toe with NCS Graduates to take on the YES/NO Challenge and find out more NCS.
