Usuthu’s Port Elizabeth born striker Somila Ntsundwana was impressed in the objective behind the joint spectacle which was unveiled on 11 May by the Gompo LFA and Usuthu.
“For me AmaZulu laid a platform for the area and the kids, it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity for some other kids cause they’re not all used to such kind of events.
They were so happy and thrilled to play such a tournament and I hope they can see that, that’s a chance given to them, and they must grab it with both hands.
For them seeing their role models also helped them a lot in order to realize its possible but either then that the tournament was a success,” said Ntsundwana.Share
