Young Brothers are the Masawe U/15 champions


Makhuvha Young Brothers FC have good reason to celebrate. They were crowned the champions of the Masawe U/15 Soccer Tournament at the Makhuvha SK New Look Grounds on Monday. This after they had brutally walloped Golden Boys FC 4-0 in the final.

Young Brothers were presented with R5 000, a soccer kit, a floating trophy, gold medals, one soccer ball and 15 pairs of soccer boots during a ceremony held at the grounds shortly after the final game.

The runners-up, Golden Boys FC, went home with R3 000, a soccer kit, silver medals, a soccer ball and 15 pairs of soccer boots. The third-placed side, Mafagini FC, received R1 500, bronze medals, a soccer kit and a soccer ball during the ceremony. Mafagini were too strong for Domboni FC, whom they crushed 6-0 in their losers’ final match that was played at the same venue earlier that day.

The top goal scorer in the tournament was Rolivhuwa Tshanda, from Mafagini FC. The Player of the Tournament award was presented to Hudivha Dzawela from Makhuvha Young Brothers. The best goalkeeper was Dakalo Makhado from Makhuvha Young Brothers.

During the ceremony, the sponsor, Mr Masala Ramaphosa, said that he would continue to sponsor the tournament in the future and that the sponsorship amount would increase with time.
