Faizel Ngobeni, an u.16-division football player of the Tshwaragano All Stars, was among the excited young players who proudly flaunted their new football kit during their training session on Friday (13/04).

“At least now we will be motiva­ted to practise and participate freely during tournaments without having to worry that our belongings will get lost. Everything will be kept safely in our new bags,” said Ngobeni.

The overjoyed Galeshewe-based team’s new kit was sponsored by the National Lottery Board.

According to Ngobeni, the donation makes a difference in the lives of all the players, as they benefit equally.

They received footballs, boots, shorts and outfits for training sessions.

“Some of our teammates did not have bags, some not even football boots, making them doubt themselves at times. We really ap­preciate this gesture.”

His fellow player, Aobakwe Semeri (19), says the kit will come to their aid especially when they have to play football in other towns.

“We had only T-shirts and track suits, which our parents had to pay for.

“At least now we’ll also be presentable and will have alternative football clothes to wear for different matches,” said Aobakwe proudly.

On behalf of the parents, Gloria Mapalentwa expressed her pride and appreciation towards her son’s football coach, Amogelang Semeri, for coming foward with the initiative of approaching the National Lottery Board.

“He is a hard worker and we appreciate him for always involving us in the team’s activities and for continuing to take initiative,” said Mapalentwa.

“His hard work is evident in the manner in which the team has grown throughout the years.”
