Glasdon UK Extend Official Sponsorship of EAFA Junior Programme for 2024

The England Amputee Football Association is delighted to announce the continued support of Glasdon UK, as the official sponsor for the 2024 DJ Sidebottom/Glasdon Charitable Junior programme.

The DJ Sidebottom/Glasdon Charitable Programme partnered with EAFA in 2023, providing five training camps over the course of the season, doubling the contact time of juniors compared to previous years.

Their continued support will ensure up to six more training camps, giving four to 18-year-old amputees and those with limb-affecting disabilities the chance to try football in a fun, secure and friendly environment.

EAFA Junior head coach Harry Smith said: “It means the world to us as a charity and the junior programme for Glasdon to continue their support of our programme.”

“Their continued support means we are able to put on more camps for our young athletes and provide more opportunities for them to develop and grow in the sport - giving them the best opportunity to represent their country at a senior level in the future.”

Having already helped to build the EAFA Junior Programme to record-breaking numbers, with over 50 children actively registered. The Glasdon sponsorship will provide the opportunity for an additional 15 children and their families to engage in 2024.
