HIGHLAND Spurs lifted Showvillage United’s June 16 Youth Month Tournament trophy, after they overcame Motherwell Eleven FC 2-0 in the finals, which took place at the Nelson Mandela Freedom Peace Park Grounds at Showvillage recently.

Spurs booked themselves a spot in the semi-finals with the 3-1 victory over Young Ideas, while Motherwell Eleven FC defeated NU 7 Citizens 4-3 on penalties after a full-time 1-1 draw.

Fans cheered on as Spurs won the game 2-0 over Motherwell Eleven FC.

Spurs received a floating trophy, gold medals and R3 000, while Motherwell Eleven FC went home with silver medals and R500.

In the u/13 finals, Mthuze United FC defeated Lion City 1-0, while Lion City edged out Mthuze United 1-0 in the finals. The winning junior teams were awarded with trophies and gold medals while the runners-up got silver medals.

The netball was played on a points system and the winning side was Newcastle Netball Club, who scooped the first prize of a trophy and gold medals, while the runners-up, Young Romans, obtained silver medals.

Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality sport control development officer, Siyabulela Isaac, stated that the municipality decided to support Showvillage United’s programme because they uplifted the standard of the community.

Isaac said, “This is the national programme for youth. At Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality, we promote youth participation in sport.

“We are happy that Showvillage are hands on in youth programmes. We will keep on supporting programmes of this nature. We have supported youth programmes in Walmer, Kwazakhele, Despatch and in the northern areas.”

Showvillage United chairperson, Lukhanyo Wasa, thanked the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality for making their programme successful.

Wasa said, “On behalf of Showvillage United, I would like to thank Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality Sports and Recreation for supporting us. They sponsored trophies, a ball and medals and allowed us to use Motherwell NU 2 Stadium free of charge.

“Had it not been for the municipality, the tournament would not have been of such a high standard. Our municipality played a tremendous role in making this programme a resounding success.

“We had to dig deep into the coffers of the club for prize money. I would like to thank Siyabulela Isaac for playing his phenomenal role too.”
