Sanju Samson Launches Sports Academy in Thiruvananthapuram

Thiruvananthapuram March 3: Sanju Samson, who represents Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League, on Friday launched Six Guns Sports Academy here that will train both cricket and football players.
 
The academy was officially launched by Thiruvanathapuram Lok Sabha member Shashi Tharoor.
 
"The academy is just not limited to cricket alone, but football talent would also be trained for greater glory," Samson said.
 
"Even though the academy is based in the capital city, the selection camps will be held across the state," he added.
Samson's father, who represented Delhi Police in football, will be coordinating the academy.
 
The 23-year-old cricketer said it was his father's idea that along with cricket, the academy also should scout and train talent in football.
