EIGHT soccer teams from the Kwandengezi, Ntshongweni and Dassenhoek communities came together for their annual tournament recently.

The event took place over two days at the Kwandengezi, Kwa-Linda soccer field and it appears the home game advantage helped – in first place was the young boys academy of Kwandengezi, with V-Section also of Kwandengezi the runners-up.

The tournament was almost cancelled after the usual sponsor pulled out due to budget constraints. The EnviroServ Group stepped in to assist and both teams walked away with an EnviroServ-branded soccer kit, trophy, medals for each player as well as R1 000 for the winning team and R500 for the second place.

Event organiser Mlu Shozi said: “The event was successful and well attended, and gave about 1 000 community members the opportunity to watch thrilling clashes on the field.”

Dignitaries included the chief and indunas.

“We are really grateful that EnviroServ was able to assist with this event,” he said.

EnviroServ Group Public Affairs Manager Makgabo Van Niekerk said the company always endeavoured to partner with the communities in which they operate.

“We were happy to be able to contribute to the success of the soccer tournament and add to the good vibes of the festive season.” - Supplied.
