IT has been a great season for Mountain Rise Astro Football Club teams and on Saturday they announced the league winners from U7 to U15 at Mountain Rise Primary School.

The season ended two weeks ago with 39 teams taking part.

Kerwin Basson, Soccer City coach, which won the U13 league, and fourth-place Soccer United told Maritzburg Fever it has been a good season for them.

“We are excited about the results, our hard work paid off, but it is not only about winning, it is about keeping our children busy outside of school,” he said.

Professor Khoza, a coach for Staxc, which won the U15 league, came second in the U11s and third in U13s, said their win is not a one-day thing, they are playing to leave a legacy. “Winning the league has motivated us to work even harder. We are glad this club is growing because it is not easy starting something not knowing whether you will win,” he said.

Teams also participated in the Knockout Cup held the same day.


U7 - first Tazmaniacs, second Supa Squad, third Lions FC
