"Football is such an important part of my life, as it is for so many people in this country. It just seems right that our national sport gives something back to society. Common Goal is the most effective and long-lasting way for players to make a difference."

For Bournemouth left back Charlie Daniels, giving back was always something instilled in him by his parents. His father, who used to serve in the military, was particularly adamant that Charlie be conscious of the world around him. 

He learned about the movement through his agent, Bobby Bowry, and was one of the first Premier League players to join the Common Goal family.

When club manager Eddie Howe pulled him aside to congratulate him on joining the movement, Charlie was typically humble: “It’s nice that people are giving me all this praise but it’s something that just felt like the right thing to do and the easy thing to do.”

Through Common Goal Charlie chose to team up with football for good organisation, the Oscar Foundation in India.
