Former England and Chelsea defender, Graeme
Le Saux, is the Foundation’s latest signing.
Graeme made a combined total of 485
appearances for Chelsea, Blackburn Rovers
and Southampton during his career, scoring 24
goals. He made his England debut in 1994 and
represented theThree Lions 36 times over six
years. He scored a memorable goal for England
against Brazil atWembley in 1995 with a stunning
strike from outside the penalty area.
Graeme said:
“Millions of people play our
national game up and down the country each
week purely for the enjoyment. It is only right
that they and the volunteers that give up their
time for free to make it happen have proper
sports facilities.”
Graeme, who has long been a supporter of the
Foundation, opened facilities at Beavers Sports
Lodge in Hounslow in 2008, joining in with a kick-
about with local sports-mad youngsters.
He added:
“The Foundation does an excellent
job in developing better facilities by investing
funding from the Premier League,The FA, the
Government via Sport England where it is most
needed. I am delighted to support its cause.”
