LESEGO ELAND (16), a gr. 10 learner of the High School Tetlanyo, has been chosen as this month’s SuperSport Let’s Play Sport Star of the month for Express Northern Cape for his achievements in football.

Lesego recently led the u.18 Sol Plaatje local football team as captain during the Goodwill Games in East London.

Lesego’s motto is: “What I do is play soccer, which is what I like.” – Lionel Messi

More on the Let’s Play initiative:

SuperSport over time has evolved as the quintessential sports authority.

SuperSport identified that there were huge issues severely inhibiting the development of children through skills learned by playing, physical education and sport.

It was from this insight that Let’s Play was born in November 2005 with the aim of elevating awareness of our social situation and to introduce and encourage play, activity and sport in schools.
