Founder of gay football team honoured with MBE

Aslie Pitter was honored with MBE
A founder of one of the UK’s first gay football teams has been awarded an MBE in the New Year honours list.

Aslie Pitter, 50, helped found London-based Stonewall FC almost 20 years ago. It is now the world’s most successful gay football club.

Mr Pitter, from Balham, south London, told Press Association: “I just feel so honoured today, although it’s recognition for everybody in the club that we’re doing a good thing and helping people fulfil their potential.

“It’s a recognition of English grassroots football.”
The former actor, who is now an assistant manager at a Boots store, still plays for the team and is the reserve manager.
