The Future Stars Academy has had the privilege of playing on the sports grounds at the Friedkin Recreation Centre a number of times in the past. However last Sunday was a particularly special occasion. “Mama Suzie Friedkin” came to see with her own eyes the 30 young girls and boys from the Future Stars Academy play a friendly game of football.
After seeing the kids have so much fun while playing the sport, Mama Suzie was touched and decided to broaden their smiles. Uniforms, footballs, shin pads, gloves and a stash of professional sport kit was donated to the academy. She has generously extended an offer for the team to continue using of the fields and facilities of the Friedkin Recreation Centre for practice and games. Furthermore, the Friedkin family will be the new team sponsor for the U8’s 2015-2016 season.
“It brings me joy to see the kids play and especially when they are having such fun with football. Sponsoring the U8 team is an honor and we hope to continue to support the program and watch the participants grow.”
