The Norman Football Club was named the winner of the two-day Local Football Association (LFA) tournament after beating Ghetto United with 1 – 0.

The tournament, which will be held annually, was launched by the LFA on 28 April as part of Freedom Day celebrations.

The tournament was supported by the Northern Cape Department of Sport, Arts and Culture.

The matches of the u.14 division was played on the Saturday, while the matches of the u.12 division was hosted on the Monday, 30 April.

Altogether 18 local teams participated in the sporting event.

On behalf of the LFA, Thabo Namisa expressed appreciation for this initiative, stating that it kept children off the streets during holidays.

According to him, the LFA had made the proposal to present the tournament to the department to help identify the LFA Elite team.

He said such tournaments would help to prepare players for the inter­provincial LFA tournament.

“We need to pull out all the stops and build all possible partnerships to prepare for the upcoming tournament that will be hosted in Kimberley in October,” Namisa said.

“Events like these will put us on the map.”
