The newly elected executive members of the Sol Plaatje Masters Football League (SPMFL) set their eyes on a new objective to promote deve­lopment teams.

This is according to the newly-elected secretary, Archie Jack, who was introduced on Saturday, 10 February, during the annual general meeting at the Mayibuye Cultural Centre.

Jack, who was one of the founding members of the SPMFL 20 years ago, pro­mised to review their objectives and sponsor programmes in the Local Football League for the leagues to go to national level.

The SPMFL consists of 28 registered leagues in their log, a reported growth of three teams.

Jack said they will be revisiting their adopt-a-club or school policy, where each of their teams will work towards the chosen team’s development.

“That way each team will get a permanent master coach to promote the club’s development,” says Jack.

He said not enough emphasis was put on such policies during the previous administration, except Diamond Boys who adopted the Northern Cape Technical High School.

“We are associate members of the Local Football Association (LFA) and are expected to strengthen its administration. We will be going out full force and knock on doors to reach our objective. We are binding each and every club to familiarise themselves with the programme and assist their nearer clubs or schools.”

Jack says they will conti­nue on last year’s initiative of the Oldies games, where they will be recognising legends.

“There are many unrecognised legends. We will run the programme over three years and will need to engage various stakeholders like the Sol Plaatje Municipality and the Department of Sports, Arts and Culture for support.”

Part of the league’s plans include the involvement in the Golden Games, which will strengthen team Northern Cape more through involving retired players who are over 60.
