Ashford Town manager Luke Tuffs speaks about his experiences of being gay and involved in football-and hopes his efforts might inspire others
Ashford Town boss Luke Tuffs, who has had an enormous impact for the Tangerines since taking the hotseat last April, has always been open about his sexuality. Today he took a step into the national spotlight by talking about the need for more LGBTQ+ role models in the men's game, as he took a prominent role in a feature on BBC Football Focus, where he was interviewed by Crystal Palace goalkeeper Chloe Morgan.
Commenting on social media, Luke stated:
Amazing to be part of such a good cause helping all LGBTQ+ people in the game. Great interview from the legend Chloe Morgan, and thanks to BBC Sport for highlighting these issues. I want youngsters to grow up happy with who they are.
