Hollywoodbets Kempton Park
Shadow Young Boys FC
This club was created because of the community experiencing a lot of stress when it came to crime and drug use among young boys in the area. They therefore formed Shadow Young Boys to help give these young people something positive to do with their time and keep them out of trouble. The club practises four times a week and is made up of 57 players who are split into three junior teams and two senior teams.
One of the community members, who is part of the Hollywoodbets Kempton Park Team, saw how much the club struggled to get together a match kit and recommended that Hollywoodbets support this club.
Collen Mdimande, Director of the club, believed that these new soccer kits will unite the team when they are playing.
“The teams will now be playing in the same match kit which will build the confidence of the teams. It will also encourage more of the community youth to get involved and help them want to participate in soccer which should lead to growth for the club,” he said.
