pritchard.jpgJoseph Pritchard is no different than lots of 8-year-olds living in England. He loves soccer and has dreams of becoming a professional player.

Pritchard has these aspirations despite having only a thumb and two fingers on each of his hands.

His father Darren contacted several sporting goods manufactures about producing special gloves for his son and Puma stepped up to the plate, providing four customized pairs.

Now little Joseph can tend goal without worrying about ill-fitting gloves slipping off.
