You might have seen them fielding balls in Croke Park at the weekend. Or even on the pitches of Fermanagh as the club championship swung into action last weekend. And the just released ‘Together for Sam’ gaelic gloves are sure to become an even bigger hit with footballers all over Ireland in the coming months.
In conjunction with Murphy’s gloves the ‘Together for Sam’ charity campaign has launched a new stylish pair of gaelic gloves and they are currently available in all sizes from ‘under 4’ right up to ‘extra large adult’ at www.togetherforsam.com
They have proved a great hit so far with county players from Fermanagh, Cavan, Meath, Mayo, Tyrone Monaghan and Donegal all sporting the gloves over the past number of weekends.
“The response we have got from the different counties has been unreal and the players have been very supportive of our cause,” revealed Sam’s dad Colm.
He also revealed that 100% of the profit will go to the ‘Sam Bradley Care Fund’.
“Ciaran Murphy, who runs Murphy’s gloves, came to me with the idea and I sent him Sam’s logo and he did the rest and to be fair to him he was adamant from the start that he wanted all the proceeds to go to Sam’s fund.”
The gloves are top quality and with their white background and multi coloured logo they will certainly help you stand out on the pitch. Indeed when the delivery of 500 pairs came to the Bradley household they even made one member of the family want to pull on the boots again;
“I slipped on a pair and started throwing a ball up against the wall and catching it. They certainly gave me the taste for wanting to get back out and play. And I never even dropped a ball so they must be good,” Colm said.
Adult gloves are available from www.togetherforsam.com for £15 with children’s sizes available from £12. The gloves can be posted out or if you would like to collect them from Enniskillen this can be arranged by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
