A South End resident joined New England Revolution players and a National Soccer Hall of Famer to help teach Boston children the fundamentals of the game.

D’Andre Edwards of the South End, along with Major League Soccer stars Matt Reis, Kevin Alston, Darrius Barnes, Ryan Guy and Clyde Simms, and Hall of Famer Eric Wynalda at the New England Revolution Academy youth soccer skills clinic at Camp Harbor View in Quincy Monday.

The clinic taught hundreds of Boston-area children soccer skills and kicked off the “Goals for Charity” charitable campaign by Sovereign|Santander, which is also sponsoring the Gold Cup 2013.

As part of the charity campaign, Sovereign will donate $500 for every goal scored during the Gold Cup 2013 and goals scored during Revolution home games this season. The money, up to $50,000, will be divided among Boys and Girls Clubs Boston, Camp Harbor View, and Cradles to Crayons.
