THE Northdale-based local football body, Pietermaritzburg and District Soccer Association (Padsa) managed to stage their popular and annual Easter tournament with success last weekend.

Although the entire event went ahead smoothly with all Padsa executive members working tiresly, especially the tournament director Cass Badat and the association’s president Rolland Naidoo, controversy around the seniors’ section almost shadowed all the good work done.

At the time of going to print, the seniors’ semi finals were still not wrapped up.

According to Naidoo, there was nothing serious except that there was an issue about the walk-over conducted earlier in the day.

Dispite thes few humps during the event, most of the junior teams, especially Celtics United from Woodlands and Eastwood’s Real Tigers were just marvels to watch and a handful of players are likely to go far in their football careers.

All Celtics and Tigers games produced skills, flair and were crowd pullers.

Tigers were the winners of the under 15 section after beating Celtic United by 1-0 during the final. The Eastwood side goal was scored by Samkelo Dlomo. Tigers coach Sandiswa “Zulu” Ngcobo said the tournament was not easy at all and the likes of Celtics and Young Killers from Table Mountain were touch customers.

“I’m just happy the way my players conducted themselves during the whole event. The tournament was a bit long for everybody, but well organised and worked out very well,” said Ngcobo.

Other winners:

U11 winners- Celtics United

U13 winners- Celtics United

U17 winners- Celtics United

The seniors’ outstanding games to be rounded off on Saturday.
