Spenston AFC, the oldest soccer club in Cape Town, is based at the William Herbert Sports Ground and are affiliated to the Cape District Football Association. The players, from junior to senior, are from the underprivileged gang ridden areas of the Southern Suburbs and the club’s mission is to provide a safe haven for these young people, by encouraging them to spend time in sports. The club members even go as far as fetching the kids for training and match days as well as providing them with a meal before going home.
Their wish was for training equipment and poles to keep the kids off the streets, improve their skills and to work on their personal development. We were delighted to be able to grant this wish as we believe in empowering the youth of tomorrow.
