According to Tshangana, the standard of the tournament was high as the games attracted more crowds than ever to the Coselelani High School grounds.

Tshangana said, “The tournament has grown by leaps and bounds since it was started some time ago. I observed that there were more spectators than those of last year. The spectators are so enthusiastic and I am overwhelmed.”

Yoyo thanked all the schools that participated in the tournament.

“Sport is a winner because of these schools, the parents of the learners, members of the community and the match officials. I would like to extend my gratitude to our school governing body for its unwavering support since the tournament started some time ago.”
