Youth Soccer at eMbalenhle.

Saturday was a big day for the young players from Emba and Leandra. They played in a knockout game to determine who would be playing at Vosloosrust next weekend.

The game was quite intense as the young players battled it out. The Carara Kicks against the Banana Boys. In the end, it was the Carara Kicks that managed to secure a 2-1 win over the Banana Boys.

Good luck to our boys from eMbalenhle, Carara Kicks.

The Bulletin spoke to Doctor Mokoena and Jacob Ntekwende

The day was also to honour one of their own. Moeketsi Diago is the first player in the Lake Umuzi Soccer Challenge to be selected as part of the Most Valued Player (MVP) Master Class group.
