Qasim signed with Cambridge United as an U15 but got released after a year without a scholarship. Striker Qasim’s life changed at 16 when he was diagnosed with b cell lymphoma, a type of blood cancer. After six months of chemotherapy and a year later the all-clear, Qasim went straight back to training and Wembley FC who signed him after his first game.


Boot Dreams: Now or Never is a six-part documentary series which sees 16 footballers, aged 18 to 26, all rejected by top clubs, arrive at a unique training camp which aims to get them a new pro contract by helping them with their struggles, both on and off the pitch.

Can they get back in the game, and the dream job they love?

Throughout the four-week process, they’ll also be visited at regular intervals by presenter Roman Kemp, who once dreamed of becoming pro himself, and wants to find out more about the experiences that have led them there.

The new six-part documentary series is on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer from Sunday 20 August.
