The Bloemfontein-based Young Divas FC is aiming to reach greater heights.
The club is one of ten campaigning in the South African Football Association’s (Safa) Promotion Women’s League for u.19 players.
Currently the team is in fourth position, with 15 points collected after five of the seven league matches in the first round of the competition.
The club, which has lost only two matches, is one of the five top-ranking clubs hoping to get promoted to the second-tier Safa Sasol Women’s League.
The team was founded early in 2017 in Freedom Square, Bloemfontein, with the help of local kwaito star Levi Lebangae Mokhethi.
The musician’s involvement was encouraged by a group of teenage girls’ passion to start a football team to showcase their talent.
The players started training on their own without any equipment. Much to the players’ delight, Mokhethi helped them to get balls and training equipment, and they have not looked back since.
