AT a ceremony at the Kokstad town hall last Sunday, the Greater Kokstad Local Football Association awarded 14 teams that participated in the association’s league.
Bhubesi Football Club took top spot and walked away with R2 000 and the trophy, and layers received medals for participating in the last league. The association’s secretary Lubabalo Gugwana said the prize money was raised by the association.

South African Football Association regional president Thozamile Lugayeni said awarding football teams boosts team confidence and encourages them to continue playing and encourages girls to play sport, especially soccer.

“Participating in sport helps to prevent people taking part in crime. These awards will encourage young people to play sport and Harry Gwala is going to award football teams as a way of absorbing young people into sport.”

Lugayeni encouraged former football players to train young people in sport.

“Teachers should promote sport among pupils. Today sport is a career for young people, unlike the old days when people used to play soccer with passion.”

Bhubesi FC walked away with more than R2 000 cash and a trophy. Players received medals for participating in the last league.

“Next year we want to get sponsors in order to award more players.”

Eastern Rangers FC lost at the provincial­ play-offs in Kokstad last weekend. Rangers was representing Harry Gwala to qualify for the ABC Motsepe League.
