The Technical High School Louis Botha will have representation in the Copa Coca-Cola Football boys’ u.15 national tournament despite being eliminated at provincial level.

The school’s finest player, wing Themba Nqwakuza, will represent the school as part of the squad dubbed the “Which Part Will You Play” All-Star Team.

The squad will represent the sponsor. It is made up of players from other provinces chosen on the same merits as Themba.

Each of the nine provinces has one player in the squad to play in a curtain raiser match against an u.15 Premier Soccer League (PSL) development team.

The fixture will pave the way for the grand finale. Themba’s inclusion in the strong squad was based on his consistent performance during the Free State leg of the competition staged recently in Bloemfontein.

He helped his team to finish in a respectable position amongst the six schools which contested for this year’s title of the Free State leg.

The skilful and speedy Themba was identified by the knowledgeable duo in coaching, Molefi Ntseki and Simba Marumo, retired Mamelodi Sundowns and Bafana Bafana player.

Both from the Free State, Ntseki and Marumo agreed that Themba stood out from the rest of his peers.

This is the third year of the talent identification campaign, led by Marumo as ambassador of the sponsor with a panel of football experts. The panel and media members visited all nine provinces in search of special players that embody and represent the dynamic and unique roles needed to make up the team.
