Talking Tactics is moving online

Mental wellbeing and awareness is vitally important

Ex-Reading FC and current Slough Town player Scott Davies will be joining us for our first online event.

Talking Tactics was developed by Berks & Bucks FA, in partnership with Reading FC, to help end the stigma surrounding Mental Health and promote everyone’s wellbeing through the power of football.

In line with the Government’s recommendations around small gatherings we have suspended our monthly face-to-face evenings, but this programme will continue with a new online format. In the coming weeks our Mental Wellbeing will be vitally important so why not join us on Friday 3rd April.

Sitting down with us for our next Talking Tactics evening will be ex-Reading FC and current Slough Town player Scott Davies. Scott’s professional career was cut short as a result of a crippling gambling addiction that lasted for 9 years. Eventually, at the age of 27, Scott attended the Sporting Chance rehab clinic and has been clean from a bet since June 8th, 2015.

Since leaving the clinic, Scott attends professional football clubs to deliver education seminars on addiction, to share and to give feedback on how gambling ruined his career.
Anyone aged 18+ is welcome to login for this online event and registration is now open using the link below. Participants are not required to have to talk themselves during the event and can simply listen to Scott’s story. For those that do want to ask a question you will have the opportunity to do this during our Q&A session. There is no requirement for participants to use a webcam.
