Donate keeper gloves to help inspire South African youngsters
25th March 2015
Swansea City Academy members are currently coaching out in South Africa - but they need a helping hand.
A team of five Academy coaches are currently in Cape Town holding training sessions with children and local teams. But with a number of the young players they will be training only having limited kit, the Swans contingent are calling on fans to donate spare and lightly-used goalkeeper gloves to help the youngsters benefit fully from the sessions.
First-team keepers Lukasz Fabianski and Gerhard Tremmel have already donated numerous pairs of their gloves to the collection, alongside goalkeepers from the under-21s side.
"People in Swansea have an opportunity to be part of this Swans trip by getting involved with this simple donation," said Swans Academy head of goalkeeping Andrew Sparkes.
"Not all young players in South Africa can afford even basic kit to play football at a grassroots level. This donation will help them continue to progress on the pitch."
Fans can donate their keeper gloves to the bucket collection at Landore Training Ground reception.
The last day for collection is this Saturday, March 28. The gloves will join the Swans Under-19s team on the flight out to South Africa next week.
