The Lentegeur City Football Club (LCFC) celebrated its first anniversary at Cornflower Primary School on ­Saturday.

“We started with eight junior boys, who at that time were playing in an unstructured environment. We developed into a fully fledged club with the introduction of a senior team. Things started to improve at a rapid rate with a sponsor coming on board, supplying club gear and equipment,” says Patrick Flynn, chairperson of the LCFC.

The club entered the Safa affiliation union in the Mitchell’s Plain district and needed to change the name of the club to Lentegeur City Football Club.

“Our membership grew rapidly both at executive committee and the number of players. Currently, we are a football, netball and fundraising committee. We are an open door club for the community and beyond. Our motto is “Strike hard and prosper”, our mandate is to develop and promote our youth to reach for their goals. Our vision is to take this wonderful club to become strong both on the field of play and in society,” he adds.

The anniversary event kicked off with a bang as the crowd was entertained by Cornflower’s drill squad. Their performance was followed by another drilling team from Heinz Park.

The children had a dance off and were awarded prizes. They also enjoyed face painting. The children were given certificates of appreciation by head coach Elroy Liedeman.

Flynn thanked sponsor Ivan Barrow, owner of Cell Spot. He added that the LCFC could only grow stronger with the dedicated, hardworking and motivated team they had.

“The executive committee and working committee led the crowd in a birthday song and the cake was cut.

“The event was closed with a word of thanks by working committee chairperson Gaynor Jansen, who added that if there were parents who would like to join they were free to do so. She also pleaded parents to come and support on match days.

“The proceeding was ended with a thanksgiving by the vice-chairperson William Bothma,” says Flynn.
