Sports against crime in Amsterdam

The Amsterdam Football Association hosted a Sports Against Crime event in Amsterdam during the Easter weekend. Even though the sporting facilities in Amsterdam are not of a high standard, volunteers offered their help in cleaning and repairing the dilapidated stadium before this event.

The youth of Amsterdam joined hands and repaired the field and cleaned the ablution facilities and changing rooms. The event was well-attended and enjoyed by everyone. The following results were made available to the Excelsior News: Winners of the day were Amabhubesi FC.

They beat the Killers FC with 5-3 on penalties. The winners walked away with R2 500-00, a complete soccer kit, medals and a floating trophy. Second place was awarded to the U/15 team, Amabhubesi Juniors, who beat Ajax FC with 3-1. The team members received a soccer kit, a trophy, medals and R300-00 in prize money. The scheduled netball games did not take place and will happen at a laterstage.

Congratulations to all these winners! The Amsterdam Football Association would like to thank the Executive Mayor of Mkhondo, Honourable Cllr V.M. Motha, LS Civils & Plant Hire, KaSthuli Agricultural Services Pty (Ltd), Dlabadlondlo Pty (Ltd), Nzimande Farm, Econocom Pty (Ltd), SaveRite and local shop owners for their contributions.

Without all the support and sponsors, the event would not have been so successful. Mr B. Dlamini said that a march for sportsmen and sportswomen wilbe held at a later stage to deliver a memorandum to the municipality regarding their grievances about the sporting facilities.

They are also planning another event, Sports Against Forest Fires, which is set to take place during the winter months when a speaker will inform the community about fire safety.

The organisation is in dire need of sponsors and donations and if anyone would like to get information about the Amsterdam Football Association, please contact Mr Bongani Dlamini on 073 781 6573.
