Doncaster Rovers Donation

The Drakenstein Hope Academy was fortunate enough to receive a visit and some soccer training from 2 professional soccer players from the UK. James and Adam Chambers are twins and play for Doncaster Rovers and Leyton Orient in the English Football League. James shared with the boys the highlight of his career which was playing in the FA Cup Semi Final for Watford and marking Christano Ronaldo!!

James brought 80 jerseys from his team in the UK (Doncaster) and donated them to all the boys in the sports academy.

It was a great time and the young men were encouraged by the visit and meeting 2 professional role models.
