THE Verulam LFA pre-season tournament finished in exhilarating fashion on Sunday which saw Soccer Kings F.C. narrowly edge out Parkgate Celtics 1-0 to claim the trophy and the cash prize.

The champions had to wait for the winner of the semi-final clash between Parkgate Celtics and Pargate Swallows which was an equally intense affair.

Celtics clinched their spot in the finals with a narrow 2-1 win.

In the finals, after a tense first half that ended 0-0, Soccer Kings claimed victory in the dying minutes of the game to ensure they took home the silverware.

Soccer Kings coach Mr. Musa said: “We are extremely happy to win the tournament and thank you to the Verulam LFA for organising this tournament. We are now ready to play in the premier league and win that too.”

In the junior tournaments Green leaf beat Young Teenagers in the under 13 division, however Young Teenagers were able to exact revenge against Green Leaf claiming the under 17 title on penalties.

In the under 15 category Buffelsdraai claimed the victory over Green Leaf.

There will be no senior football taking place this week, as teams are encouraged to use this time to ensure they get their registrations in order before the 1 May deadline.

The Verulam Premier League will then start on 8 May with the registered teams only.

However, this week there will be under 19 friendlies that will take place on Sunday 30 April.

For more information regarding registration or information about the Verulam LFA, contact general secretary Nicho Mazwai on 0793062927 or president Martha Narainsamy on 072 762 1925.
