“If the recent showing by young soccer players who took part in the Mgebe/KSC Cup is anything to go by, the nation can rest assured in the knowledge that it has talent galore.”

This sentiment was shared by Khayelitsha Sports Council (KSC) deputy president Nceba Zondani, who expressed this notion at the completion of a schools soccer tournament sponsored by Mgebe Securities.

“We saw a lot of talented boys and I hope that one day we will see them wearing colours of top teams in the country,” said Zondani.

Bobby Mgebe, representing the sponsor, was also very impressed with the quality of football dished by the young boys.

“They are young you can see some of them will becom stars when they grow up,” he said.

Mgebe said it was important that companies owned by Blacks started supporting sports in the townships and schools.

“By supporting events like these you are nipping crime in the bud,” he said.

Isikhokelo Primary School was crowned champions after beating Encotsheni Primary in a nailbiting game 4-3.

The games were hailed as a major success and Mgebe Securities committed themselves in sponsoring the event again.
