On Friday 13th April the first annual Football Academy Cup was held at the NMMU George campus. 8 local primary schools attended the tournament which was held between 3pm and 6pm. The aim of the Cup will be to provide competitive opportunities for the primary schools and also enable the Sports Academy to select talented kids for the next years new intake of football players. The final was hard fought with Tylora Primary School from Thembalethu eventually coming out the winners. The runners up Thembalethu primary school received 4 new footballs as their prize and the winners received footballs along with a new football kit for their school. The day was very successful with the schools commenting that they would love to hold it every month!
On 26th April we will be holding the Netball Academy Cup we hope this day will be just as successful.
