AFTER 28 years of commitment, hard work and determination, the first team of Celtic Football club, situated among the Northern areas of the metro, got promotion and will now play for a higher league.

The club which was established in 1987 has been playing in the Northern Area Football Association for decades and consists only of players residing in the northern areas if the Bay.

“On Saturday, October 10, our first team played against Windvogel United and beat them to a score of 3-0,” said Warren Blaauw, spokesperson and reserve team player of the club.

This win was a huge stepping stone for the team as it pushed them into a higher and more advanced soccer league after 28 years of playing for the NAFA - The Premier League.

This league is the highest league in the NAFA, and can mean more than just promotion for the winners.

“In this league our players can get more exposure in the sense that more coaches from higher soccer associations can scout them, and even take them to play for a higher league,” said Blaauw.

The first team, however, is not the only Celtic Football club team making history. The reserve team pushed through to the finals of the Shield league, which also forms part of the NAFA league, and will face their opponents on November 1.

The team welcomes any donations, as they urgently need new kits to play in. They also have two junior teams which also require financial support. Contact Warren Blaauw at 076 979 3875 for more info
