THE Greater Kokstad Football Association is seeking additional sponsors to develop sport among young people.
The association believes that to keep young people busy and out of trouble, it is important to build sports facilities for them and attain financial support that can contribute to seasonal leagues.

Association secretary Lubabalo Gogwana told Fever that they are engaging with sponsors who can fund awards for teams that play in the 2015/2016 league, which ends this month.

“We have 17 teams that are competing in the domestic league. The number one team will be promoted to play in the regional league.

“Last season we didn’t award teams because of financial constraints. Next month we want to encourage them by awarding all 17 teams that have participated in the league.”

The new structure in the association claims that for the past two years sport in Kokstad has not been attractive because those who competed in the league did not participate fully.
“In 2013 there were 34 teams, but when the new structure took over in 2014 the teams was reduced to 17, which are manageable,” said Gogwana

“Kokstad is the only area in the district of Harry Gwala that has boys aged 17 competing in the junior league. Our aim is to keep young people together so they don’t focus on alcohol and drugs. Awarding young people will encourage them to take part in sport.”
