Common Goal

Post  Hieronymus on 2017-11-09, 1:35 pm

Following the great news of the Beacon of Light getting ready to improve young people's health, educaton and traning in Sunderland and the North East,  have just seen another article about something very positive coming out of SAFC.

We can be very proud of a young man who has always done well for us. Clever, smart, polite, never any trouble on or off the field and now showing he has a social conscience as well. Congratulations to Duncan Watmore for becoming the 20th footballer to join Juan Mata's Common Goal project, donating 1% of his salary to football based charities around the world.

Duncan Watmore is the first Championship player to make the commitment Common Goal  
Duncan Watmore has become the 20th player to join Juan Mata's Common Goal project and will now donate 1% of his salary to charity.
The Sunderland forward joins fellow English players Charlie Daniels and Alfie Mawson on the Common Goal team, which now boasts 20 players from six continents.
Watmore, who becomes the first Championship player to make the commitment, is delighted to put his name to the cause.
“Football is a fast paced career and you never know what’s around the corner,” said Watmore. “I want to commit to Common Goal now as it’s the most effective and sustainable way for the football industry to make a positive impact on society. My career lies ahead of me and I’m delighted that Common Goal will be a constant part of my journey.”
Watmore also suffered a torn ligament last December, from which he has only just returned, and yet still managed to graduate from University with a First-Class Honours Degree in Economics and Business Management at Newcastle University.
Bournemouth defender Daniels, who joined the project last month, was quick to welcome his compatriot to the team. “It’s great to see a young talent like Duncan, who has already represented England at U20 and U21 level and has his whole career ahead of him, come forward and join us in Common Goal.
"I’m delighted to welcome him as the 20th member of the Common Goal team.”

Well done Duncan, 1% is a small amount but can make a massive difference.
