THE community of New Guelderland gathered for an exciting soccer tournament co-ordinated by DCLM and ukuPhakamisa.

The match was held between four of the surrounding community teams, Princes Grant, Nonoti, Stewards and New Guelderland.

ukuPhakamisa is a non-profit organisation, fully sponsored by Dolphin Coast Landfill Management (DCLM).

Its main objective is to uplift and educate the local community, and they demonstrated this by upgrading the New Guelderland field into a proper soccer field, presenting it to the community for their recreational use.

The trophy, soccer kits and soccer boots which were fully sponsored by DCLM, were awarded to the winning team the New Guelderland Hungry Lions.

The tournament was supported by the South African Football Association (SAFA), who was involved from the planning stages. Mr Mhlongo, President of SAFA within the iLembe region, commenting on the efforts put forward by DCLM and Ukuphakamisa towards encouraging the New Guelderland community to participate in sporting activities said: “Soccer is one activity that assists in keeping the youth away from drugs.”

This tournament was also supported by the ward councillor James Van Whye who also commended DCLM for their support and work towards improving the quality of life for the local community
