Sky’s the limit for Young Natalians

IT looks like sky’s the limit for Young Natalians.

A couple of weeks ago head coach Greg Nair’s team became league champions of the South African Indoor Football Association (Saifa) with another trophy. To top that the Natalians travelled to Holland and were victorious in a one-day tournament.

Nair said his team was one of the best that competed in the off-season event in Amsterdam.

“Without blowing my horn, these youngsters made me, our country and their city proud after winning the Pos Service Holland (PSH) tournament. It was the incentives for winning a Cup double last season, all expenses paid. My boys did well, we won the final 11-5 and the semi-final 10-4. Our guys displayed great skills and crowd were mesmerised by our quick passing game. We were treated as favourites of the event,” said Nair.

Young Natalians further earned two more awards. Their scoring machine, Sedwyn George, was voted player of the tournament and earned the best goal during the event.

“It was a long-range shot from the centre line,” said Nair.

Saifa president and law guru, Poobie Govindasamy said he hopes the trip was an eye-opener for the team and a plus for the country.

“We are all happy for the team, they made us, the country and their parents proud. As Saifa officials were are pleased to see that indoor [futsal] was now growing in South Africa.”
