goalie-gloves.jpg A boy from Gloucester, England got the perfect gift this Christmas. His parents presented him with a pair of gloves designed especially for him by Puma. Joseph Pritchard was born with a condition that left him with two fingers and one thumb and found traditional gloves would fall off during Football practise. His parents wrote to several big sports companies to see if any of them would be interested in helping them with their quandry and were delighted when Puma called them and confirmed they would be only too happy. They even imprinted the 8 year-old’s name on the tabs.

The boy’s school has hailed the child as being an inspiration as he has also had a leg amputated and shows no sign of backing down from following his passion in sports.
