It was a fun but nail-biting affair as Nyanga East soccer giants United Brothers F.C and Jabula United clashed in the annual Nyanga Local Football Association tournament held over the Easter weekend.

The contest started on Friday and ended on Monday, what with 28 senior teams fighting for the main trophy.

In the final game, United Brothers from Lusaka struggled to beat Jabula Brothers as the full time score was nil-nil and the game went on a penalty shoot-out.

United Brothers took the honours after winning 4-3 on penalties and now the current holders of the cup.

The tournament was deemed as being very successful by tournament organisers.

According to NLFA president Sibongile Mgxekeni, the event was a success, not just on the playing field but also as far as attendance was concerned.

“We would like to thank all the supporters who came to watch the football as well as the teams that participated.

We would like to also thank Ward 39 Councillor Khaya Yozi as well as PSL referee Sibusiso Sisilana, for being part of the event,” he said.

Yozi said it was pivotal that his ward’s local soccer league and the Nyanga LFA have a good working relationship.

“The Nyanga LFA is very important to us because they have the facility to play good football.”

The event was well attended and supported by locals, which is great because not everyone attended religious gatherings, so it was important that they had the option of such entertainment. It is therefore important to bring resources together to develop football,” said Yozi. Yozi added that his ward was also planning another event on Freedom Day.
