Liberian-American forward Jerjer Gibson is set to make a significant donation to his beloved hometown club, Junior Pro Rollers in Monrovia, Liberia.
The AFC Lancaster Lions forward is set to donate two (2) sets of jerseys, two (2) sets of football hose, ten (10) footballs and some medical equipment in September this year.
” Back home, we had to struggle to get equipment to play football. Every child needs quality equipment and good healthcare to play the beautiful game of football that we all love.”
“, I have experienced hardship and played football without shoes, so helping my people is a special way of giving back to society and appreciating what God has done for me,” Gibson said during an online interview with TheAfricaChannel.co.uk.
Gibson was born in Monrovia, Liberia and moved to the United States of America in 2007 where he started playing colts football at El Camino Colts. He moved to Pennsylvania where he played for some indoor clubs before signing professional football contract with Virginia Beach Piranhas.
In 2019, Jerjer joined the famous AFC Lancaster Lions in a deal which saw him officially making his US Open Cup debut with the club.
