 “We are extremely proud of our G.U.D. bursary students for the excellent results achieved at the Academy. It is especially gratifying to know that they have taken their studies seriously and are committed to furthering their professional sports ambitions. Well done boys!” said Red Shuttleworth, CEO, G.U.D. Holdings (Pty) Ltd.

G.U.D. is the largest player sponsor at The Sharks Academy and we have invested millions of rands toward youth development since 2012. Our investment in the talented students have yielded great results as some of them have secured junior contracts for the Sharks and Amazulu FC, following the footsteps of former G.U.D. sponsored student, Franco Marais, who now plays for The Sharks.
