Football strip joy for team

A KENYAN youth football team are proudly pictured in their first real football strip.

The Stars for Jesus team will certainly stand out in the bright yellow kit, kindly donated by Wisbech St Mary football team, who are sponsored by Gathercole Taxis.

The strip was taken out to Nairobi by Meadowgate School teaching assistant Nicky Hatton on her recent visit to the African country.

She said: “The team play in a local tournament, but have never had a football strip before, so they were totally thrilled with this.

“The boys there are former street boys who have been taken into the Stars for Jesus Rehabilition Centre and totally changed their lives.”

Nicky added huge thanks to David Gathercole, Sandra and Steve Brown and Wisbech St Mary football team.
