African Tribes Football Club from Khayelitsha got off to a winning start when the Khayelitsha Local Football Association league kicked off on Saturday.

African tribes won their first game 2-1 against TTACC United Football Club.

African Tribes coach Luciano Mgwali said he is happy with the team’s performance despite missing a lot of chances during the game.

He said first games are always tricky because you never know what to expect from your opposition. Mgwali said their main aim this season is to gain promotion back to the third division.

TTACC coach Pastor Tyityi said his team lacked experience on Saturday because it is made up of youngsters.

He said even though they lost, the game was balanced because after the opposition took the lead they managed to equalise before half time.

Tyityi said he does not want to put pressure on his team but the players are determined to do better this season.
