Nceba Toto, a football coach and founder of X1 Killers Football Club, which is based in Samora Machel Kasi, is over the moon after his team buried Super Eagles to win the Mandalay Football League over the weekend.

An elated Toto told City Vision that he trains over 130 Kasi youngsters aged between 11 years and 30 years.

“I always told myself that I should contribute to my community by taking young people who are doing nothing to teach them soccer,” he said.

The team also won the June 16 trophy after they defeated Super Eagles 4-0.

“I started with this team eight years ago when these guys were still young boys.

It appeared as if it was not going to be possible but today we are reaping the fruits of our hardwork.

“I kept telling these youngsters that we will win one day. Some of them were despaired but

I encouraged them and today we are now a strong team that is feared around Cape Town,” added Nceba.

Toto said he was grateful to God that his sweetheart Zoliswa Mbuyela is always there for him.

“She always stands by me and prays for the team. Whenever we play an away game, when she does not go with us, she calls everytime to check if we are winning,” Toto added. A proud Zoliswa said she has developed a strong love for soccer because of her partner. “When he married me I discovered that he loved soccer and I learnt to love it as well.

Team Captain Sphamandla Zenzile,22, said: “We are happy we have made it. It was a long battle and our opponents were tough.”
