DIEGO DE ABREU (15) of the Northern Cape High School in Kimberley is May’s Express Northern Cape’s SuperSport Let’s Play Sports Star of the Month for his splendid performance in hockey. Diego has shown talent from a very young age. He has been playing in the Northern Cape High School first boys’ hockey team since gr. 8.

For six consecutive years he has represented the Northern Cape provincial team in hockey – three years in the u.13 team and three years in the u.16 team.

Diego was selected for the South African junior hockey Colt squad when he was 11 years old.

He captained the Northern Cape provincial u.16 boys’ team in 2014. Diego has also been playing in the men’s hockey league for the St Patrick’s Club, since gr. 7. Diego has been selected for the Northern Cape provincial u.16 team that will tour Natal in July. This marks the third year that he will be playing u.16. Diego’s motto is: “If you want something, go and get it, period!”

You can email your nomination to supersport@zpr.co.za or fax it to 086-552-4922. SuperSport over time has evolved as the quintessential sports authority.

SuperSport identified that there was huge issues severely inhibiting the development of children through skills learned by playing, physical education and sport – all of which are imperative to the holistic development of young people.

It was from this insight that Let’s Play was born in November 2005 with the aim of elevating awareness of our social situation and to introduce and encourage play, activity and sport in schools.

Send your SuperSport Let’s Play Sports Star of the Month nomination for learners between the ages of 6 and 18 years old today (nominations received before the 20th of each month will be included in that month’s selection).
