STRUGGLING football teams in South Africa are finally going to get their own kit.
The Tempest Football Club in Colchester presented the town's St Benedict's College with 13 football strips for youth groups in South Africa.
When Tempest FC obtained a new club sponsor, they decided to donate last season's strips to a good cause.
Having just returned to Colchester after several years in a very deprived area of Africa, Father Brian McGilloway received the shirts on behalf of the teams.
St Benedict's financially supports youth work in his South African parish and the school has agreed to pay for the kits to be transported to the new owners.
Paul Wareing, chairman of Tempest FC, and Tracy Wareing, treasurer, also took part in the presentation ceremony.
