MORE than 100 children rejected by football teams around Estepona now have a place to play the beautiful game and a swanky new kit to play in.

Campeones Junior was set up to give less talented children a place to play football after they had been discarded by local teams.

At the launch of their new season at the Instituto Mediterraneo, the boys were presented with their first ever kit thanks to local estate agency Siesta Homes.

Marketing manager, Eddie Martinez, said: “A lot of these kids come from tough backgrounds, they aren’t shown enough love and support at home and they have been pushed aside by other teams for one reason or another.

“Campeones Junior gives them the motivation and self-confidence they need.”
