Graskop soccer team is celebrating the donation of new kit from a generous businessman, Eugene Skea. The team is called Graskop Youngsters and it consists of talented players who look set to put the town on the map.
The team coach, Steve Malele, made an appeal in a previous edition of GPS News, asking for anyone to assist the team. He’s very happy that the plea has attracted a positive reaction.
“I’m thankful to Mr Skea for his contribution. He contributed a full soccer kit and two new balls. The boys are motivated to play because they own their own kit. We used to rely on other teams to lend us their gear, but today we can stand very proud as a team,” said Malele.
He added that the team is still in need of other soccer material such as bibs for training. Malele is, however, grateful that the team is growing by leaps and bounds. He also thanked GPS News for helping the community by sharing the concerns of residents.
“We’ll be playing a tournament in Sabie- Harmony Hill. The boys are training very hard and the new kit has definitely given them a big boost. The team belongs to the community and it can go far if we all put our hands together to assist,” said Malele.
