Saint Michaels Sports Academy

We are honoured to see our famous red and black quarters over 3,500 miles away in Cameroon!

Saint Michael Sports Academy (SaMISA) is an initiative that was started by Reverend father. Fr. Jude Thaddeus Lawsamba in the North West of Cameroon. Jude is a priest from the Diocese of Kumbo,  presently studying in Rome. Though a Roman Catholic Priest, he had a lot of passion for sports. and spent so much time in most of the parishes where he worked in the Diocese Of Kumbo trying to identity, nurture and promote young talents. 

The Club has been delivering preloved boots, kit, equipment to Africa for many years.

It was on the back streets of a South African township where Richard Tims (Chairman) and his wife Jenny dreamed of doing something to help change the face of football for those living in Africa. Seeing children playing the game in their bare feet left them asking what could be done to help. It was obvious to them that those children kicking a ball to each other shared the same passion and love that millions of more fortunate fans have for the sport. This was where the ‘Boots For Africa’ appeal was born.

Help make your OLD boots… someone else’s NEW boots.

You can help us very easily by donating your old boots. Simply clean them, tie them together with the laces and contact us -

Your support, however large or small, can make a real difference. Your donated boots may be the first ever pair worn by disadvantaged children and will offer a generation of young people affected by poverty, poor health and lack of opportunity a new sense of hope, pride and ambition for themselves and for their country.
