LEGENDARY former Bafana Bafana coach Clive Barker was on the South Coast last weekend for the 11th annual Build it U13 soccer tournament.

Barker, who has long been a supporter of the tournament, held a coaching clinic attended by over 30 coaches at Margate Middle School on Sunday.

On Saturday, soccer fans of all ages queued for more than two hours at Port Edward Build it
where Barker first made an appearance.

“At first whistle, on two fields, teams battled it out for four hours to be the ultimate champion of the U13 Build it Football Tournament. “Clive Barker was walking around with the coaches picking the cream of the crop for a Clive Barker/Build it ‘dream team’,” said Port Edward Build it owner, Hector
MacLeod.

The final match was played at 2pm.

Up for grabs were new tog bags and a full football kit, sponsored by Build it for the winning team, as well as individual trophies and the bragging rights that goes with the champions trophy and being the U13 champions for 2017.

The “Most Voted Player”, Mawande Shusha, walked away with a new bicycle, a tog bag and a trophy.

“Clive Barker is of the opinion that football on the South Coast is of the highest standard and that the footballers of tomorrow might come from the south coast of our beautiful country,” said MacLeod.
