More than 200 young soccer players were given recognition at a recent presentation ceremony, following months of planning and fundraising.

The Strandfontein AFC held a junior presentation on Saturday 18 November where 220 children were rewarded for their hard work and dedication throughout the year.

“The awards presentation for our juniors is done annually. The importance of awarding the players is for them to be recognised for their improvement and achievements for the club, and to be thanked in the presence of their parents, coaches, members and ­supporters.

“The recognition received also assists with their application to secondary school when they reach that stage which is one of the requirements when completing application to submit your child to high school level,” says Natasha Hendricks, junior club chairperson.

Hendricks and her junior committee team of six members and the executive committee of the club did the preparations for the event.

“We purchase our trophies from Winners in Milnerton that provides us with superb service each year. Media24 donated Kick Off magazines, Bargain Books in Diep River sponsored soccer annuals and soccer skill booklets, the combo meals were sponsored by Mr and Mrs Bruyns, the parents of junior committee members and u.12 coach who unselfishly and diligently fed close to 300 on the day. One of our u.14 parents, Elrick Williams of Kcircle Photography, took a few snapshots of the event,” says Hendricks.

“Players and non-players – be it parents, supporters and the community – are most welcome to sign up as either players or members and become a part of the Seagulls family at Strandfontein AFC u.6 to over 40 and even people who are willing to coach.”
