One of our former Broomhouse service users has topped off a great year by becoming a World Cup winner.

Andrew Bright was one of the stars of the Scotland team who won the New Balance Shield at this year’s Homeless World Cup tournament.

The 2017 competition was held in Oslo with over 500 players from more than 50 countries taking part.

Andrew and his teammates had a fantastic tournament, overcoming Lithuania in the quarter finals and France in the semis before beating Grenada 5-1 in the final.

Andrew stayed at our Broomhouse supported accommodation service in Edinburgh for over a year before moving into his own flat in January

Ypeople CEO Joe Connolly said: “We were all thrilled to hear about Andrew’s success at the Homeless World Cup. And having moved into his own flat earlier in the year following his time with us, it’s been a really positive year for him.”

Following his World Cup win, Andrew also got the chance to meet one of football’s legendary figures, the former Manchester United and Aberdeen manager, Sir Alex Ferguson.
