Not content with being halfway through the season of his career, Jack Butland has gone and proved that he’s a top banana off the pitch too.
The Stoke goalkeeper has donated £5,000 of his own cash to the Great Britain women’s deaf football team in order to help them fund their trip to the Deaf World Cup in Italy.

I’ve learnt a lot from major tournaments, experiences I’ll never forget, I’d love for you to experience the same! 🙏🏼 https://t.co/0SNGqUGya5

The GB team’s campaign, which has already been backed by several full women’s international players such as Lucy Bronze, Jo Potter and Fran Kirby, will cost £20,000 in total.
Before Butland’s donation, they still needed to raise £7,050 in just 14 days. Now they’re a whole lot closer to their goal.
