Ghana Rugby received an unexpected but highly appreciated and needed gift from some Friends of Ghana Rugby in the UK in the form of kit and equipment.

The Ghana Rugby Coaching Advisor, Collin Osborne, in association with a friend, Julian Ayton, donated kit consisting of rugby balls, cones and training bibs.

When asked about the donation, Osborne said: “The kit which you received was donated by a friend of mine, Julian Ayton of J A Consultancy (UK) LTD. Julian was the kit man (Kit Logistics Technician) at Harlequins FC when I was coaching there.”

He has always had a genuine passion for the development of the game and the grassroots of the game, not just the Elite end.
Julian had supported a number of initiatives in the past including the Future Hope Charity based in Calcutta, which uses rugby as a platform to improve the life chances of street children in that city.
So when I told Julian about what I was doing in Ghana he was genuinely interested to assist and so he donated a load of kit for the programmes run by Ghana Rugby.
He will be delighted to know that it has arrived and that his contribution will make a significant impact on the development of rugby in Ghana.”
President of Ghana Rugby, Herbert Mensah,  said that the Union is extremely grateful for the kind donation and that the Union can do with many more such initiatives.
“Given our development plans and objectives we can never receive too many balls, bibs and cones and the donation by Julian Ayton via Collin will go a far way towards supporting our World Rugby ‘Get Into Rugby’ (GIR) Programme, Mensah said.
Ghana Rugby also received 80 rugby balls at the recent 13th Rugby Africa Summit in Marrakech that was donated by Gilbert, an official sponsor of both World Rugby and Rugby Africa.
The balls were presented to Rafatu Inusah, Ghana Rugby Board Member (Women’s Representative and GIR Zonal Coordinator, by former Ghana Rugby President, Ms Gifty Anna-Myers who attended the Summit as former Rugby Africa EXCO Member.
