Borough's South African link as soccer shirts are handed over
9:44am Wednesday 30th October 2013 in Sport
FOOTBALL: ST Clere’s FC Youth have handed over more than 30 replica Premier League, International and European football shirts to help boost a charity.
The players from St Clere’s Under-14 team – sponsored by Griffin residential – collected a large amount of clean kits to send to the St. Anthony’s Children’s Home in South Africa.
The campaign began after hearing that young footballers on the other side of the world did not have the same facilities as those at St.Clere’s.
The kits got to orphans at the children’s home in South Africa to reward good behaviour.
Some St.Clere’s players are hoping to become pen pals with the South African youngsters.
The club also plans to send their old home and away kits from previous seasons to the home.
The club is hoping to gain some form of assistance in covering shipping costs. And if anyone can help they should contact the St. Clere’s Club Secretary via the website: www.stcleresfc.webs.com
