Footballers to donate kit to support group

Simon Weaver, Seb Carole and Linsay Medica

A group of footballers have pledged their support to a Yorkshire charity.

Former Leeds United stars will be involved in the Super 7s tournament at Harrogate Town's CNG Stadium next month.

The event will raise money for Support Group Little Hiccups, which was set up by two Yorkshire mums who have children with special needs.

Former Chelsea and Tottenham star Gus Poyet will join Elland Road favourites like Seb Carole and Rui Marques in the tournament on May 9th.

The 7-a-side competition will see corporate sides take on teams of current and ex-professionals.

Speaking to Stray FM, Seb Carole pledged to donate his side’s shirts to the charity:

“We’ve managed to get our kit done by Leeds United and we want to give it to Little Hiccups at the end of the tournament.

“It’ll be nine or ten full Leeds United kits with numbers and names on the back – signed or not signed, depending how you want it – but this is how we want to contribute and make people happy.”

Linsay Medica, a Mum to a 9 year old son who is profoundly disabled, helped start Little Hiccups nearly 6 years ago. She said:

“We’ve come from such small beginnings and the interest and the passion that other people are bringing to it is really quite overwhelming.

“I do feel very humbled and very proud really that people are supporting us.”

Hear Linsay talk about the charity and their role in the Super 7s:
