MOOIHOEK – SAFA Sekhukhune Region SAB League played their games over the weekend whereby two top teams played against Ratanang FC in two days.
The Ga-Phahla King Born FC who are second placed on the log standing played to a 2 all draw against Ratanang FC on Saturday at Mooihoek grounds.
On Sunday Ratanang FC went further to lock horns with Makgatle village’s Rocks FC, who are positioned top on the log, in which action filled encounter they were defeated by a goal to nil. Rocks retained their top of the log standing with a three points lead from their top position contenders.
According to Bobby Manasoe, SAFA under 15 Technical Director, there were only two streams in Sekhukhune region last season and one more stream had been added this season.
Manasoe said the move was aimed at creating a wider platform for rural sports development and to provide more aspiring soccer players a chance to reach their goals.
The founder of Ratanang FC further expressed gratitude to SAFA Sekhukhune Region’s President Lazarus Thokoane and Secretary Judas Thipane and Coordinator, Frank Maredi for their efforts of adding one more stream in line with the desire to heighten soccer standards in rural areas.
“We urge business community to take part in rural sport development which contributes massively in the development of young people’s programmes,” advised Manasoe.
Manasoe concluded that there were a few games left before the end of the 2017/2018 season and sponsors were invited to join in and make sure all competitions and tournaments adhered to SAFA competition rules and regulations.
