Gamalakhe club get new kit from Swedish team

2011-01-25 00:00

GAMALAKHE-BASED football club Island City were recently the beneficiaries of brand-new kit sponsored by influential Swedish football figure Christer Solgevik.

Solgevik, president of Swedish Division Two Norra Svealand football club IF Älgarna, along with his club and wife Karin, raised funds in his native country ahead of the couple’s quarterly visit to the South Coast with the view to support a local football side who suffer from a lack of resources.

The Solgeviks own a holiday home in Gamalakhe and came to hear about Island City, who play their home matches at the TB Molefe Stadium, and duly donated a set of full kit to the club. Solgevik said they will continue to raise funds and look forward to donating more kit to struggling football clubs and schools during their next visit to the South Coast.
