UMZIMKHULU Arsenal FC promised to help six matriculants, who play for the club, and who come from disadvantaged homes, get their learner driver’s licence once they finish school.

The team’s head coach Gugulethu Jama said after matric most young people do not go to tertiary institutions because of their poor backgrounds so helping them to get learner licences will help when they look for employment.

“The team is willing to help players get learner driver licences if they can get sponsors,” said Jama.

Team player Zovuyo Mcetywa (20), who is in matric praised the initiative and said it will help him in the future.

To celebrate the club’s achievements last year, the team donated school uniforms to four U13 players who come from poor homes.

Some of the club’s achievements include the U20 team winning the Metro Cup Tournament in September and U13 won the Build it Tournament.

“The team also celebrated after registering for the domestic league in Umzimkhulu, and is doing well,” says Jama.
