Gloves
Around the Academy:

As every player on the pitch has to handle the ball many chose to wear gloves to give themselves a better grip of the ball, particularly in winter.

There are two types of gloves which are worn.

Some wear goalkeeping type gloves with latex rubber on the palms which gives good grip on the ball especially if it is wet.

The other kind which are common are a woollen/acrylic type material with rubber dimples on the palm and fingers which give grip on the ball.
