MARCEL SIMONS has promised to promote sport in the Harry Gwala region after being appointed by SA Football Association as the new chairperson of Harry Gwala Coaches’ Association.

Simons is a technician for Mercedes-Benz in Kokstad and his passion for sport has earned him the new position.

“Sport is in my blood so I am always training children in football.

“I am going to make sure that Kokstad produces football players that will qualify for national teams.”
Simons trains children in his spare time, but wants to become a Safa instructor.

On Saturday Simons was awarded a “D” and “C” certificate as a coach by the secretary of Safa in Harry Gwala, Siyabonga Memela.

Memela congratulated Simons on the new position and called for other coaches to work hard to promote sport.
