The marcus evansï¿½ owned Ipswich Town Football Club (ITFC) can now count several young Iraqis as its fans, complete with ITFC gear.
Six students from the King Edward VI School, in Bury St Edmunds in England, recently visited a school in Kurdistan, Iraq, to teach physical education and offer sports coaching to the local students. The students handed out ITFC goodies, including replica shirts, benchwear and footballs.
The initiative was in conjunction with the British Council and the Youth Sport Trust, an independent charity devoted to changing young peopleï¿½s lives through sport. Youth Sport Trust is developing nation-building projects through sport for young people in war-torn areas, such as Kurdistan.
The King Edward VI School Head Teach Geoff Barton said: ï¿½Our partnership with Ipswich Town has served to enrich and develop our work and long may it continue.ï¿½
Also happy with the projectï¿½s success, the Schoolï¿½s Assistant Head Teacher, Rob Walden said: ï¿½Weï¿½re grateful to Ipswich Town for their input and it was great to see the childrenï¿½s faces light up as they wore their Town shirts with pride!ï¿½
