THE Sondlovu Sphilile soccer tournament took place in Imbali Unit 13 sports grounds to encourage amateur and development football and thelp steer the youth away from drugs and alcohol abuse.

The tournament was well attended by soccer teams within ward 17. The tournament initially started on 13 February and catered for the U17 teams. “We hosted this sports event to keep the children away from social ills and drugs. They need to be kept busy at all times so that they know how to be disciplined, focused and we want them to stay away from drugs and alcohol.

“There are more than six teams that competed for the top spot.

“Real Inter team won the competition and received­ a trophy, gold medals and R800,” said the organiser of the tournament David Ndlovu.

He urged Premier Soccer League (PSL) football clubs to scout for talented young players from rural communities and not to focus only on urban areas.

“At the tournament the talent was impressive and a lot of the players came prepared. The players were grateful for the opportunity because others do not have soccer as part of their extra curriculum activities at school,” said Ndlovu.

Ndlovu appealed to business owners and communities to help towards funding developmental soccer in the community.

Ndlovu can be contacted on 083 542 4913.
