When Dumisani Hlope United’s U15 Coach announced the tournament to his squad they were excited and you could see the glee in their faces.

“In 2007 we participated in this tournament. We lost in the quarter finals and the tournament had a lot of controversy”, said Coach Hlope.

”I am pleased that the hosts Sports Inc. have decided to call for authentic documentation by the 03 April 2009 for verification to avoid dissatisfaction at this year’s event.

“We have been training since the 26 January 2009 and the boys are looking sharp. The squad are made up of players that graduated from the U13 2008 squad. Although the team has been strengthened with four new players the bulk have been together for two years.

“We are looking forward to a successful tournament and for the boys to enjoy the experience.
