Manchester United goalkeepers once again sponsored a  guide dog for Manchester Guide dogs.

Goalkeeping coach Eric Steele explained how money collected from fines for the keepers for incidents including being late for the gym, a team meeting and forgetting to wear a club tie, has been put towards the cost of sponsoring a guide dog puppy and paying for its training with The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association.

Steele joined Sam Johnstone David De Gea, Ben Amos, and Anders Lindegaard in posing for a photo with Titan the puppy at the training ground.

“We decided to put all the fines together and put the money towards a worthy cause,” Eric said, “It costs £5,000 for the sponsorship and training and it takes 12-14 months for a puppy to be trained up so we’ll be following its progress. It’s a great cause to be involved with.”

United Manager Sir Alex Fergusson was on hand – and it was great that he agreed to be involved in the shoot.

Oaktree photography was pleased to donate the shoot to the Guide Dog society.

We already sponsor a puppy, and so it was fantastic to be involved in this.
