HORMEAD Hares have donated an old football kit to the Fass School team in north Gambia.

The kit, which includes shirts, shorts and socks, was taken out to Gambia at Christmas by Marge and Kevin Coleman, who are friends of the Royston Crow Youth League club.

The outfits were worn by the Hares' under-12s team during 2005-2007 and manager Peter Worby said: "Marge and Kevin's son died a few years ago at Christmas from brittle bone disease and they've been going out during the holidays to Gambia where they've found extreme poverty and people desperate for sports equipment so we gave them the kit.

"It was sitting in the loft so we thought we could put it to good use and they took it out this Christmas.

"It's the second time we've done it and this time we even manager to get a referee's kit out there thanks to Angie Searle, the Royston Crow Youth League's fixture secretary.

"We're hoping to get some footballs out there in future and some second hand training shoes too.
