Potters Bar motor garage wants England squads’ football boots

A CAR dealership in Potters Bar has invited England’s World Cup flops to put their football boots to better use and donate them to charity.

In the wake of the national team’s 4-1 drubbing at the hands of old rivals Germany, Dagenham Motors has suggested the players hand their footwear over to Boots for Africa, a charity which provides football boots for impoverished children across the continent.

The Baker Street dealership, which is part of the Ford Retail Group, is acting as an official collection point for the charity, which was set up by Sheffield FC after its chairman, Richard Tims, saw children in the poverty-ridden townships of Africa playing football in their bare feet.

As well as boots, unwanted trainers, football shirts and deflated balls can also be donated.

Single football boots can also be donated in order to benefit children in Sudan who have lost a foot or leg to a landmine.
