Our under-13s soccer team is riding the crest of a wave, having completed a remarkable double by winning their respective league in the Dunoon Football Association, and the prestigious, Build-It Western Cape under-13 Soccer Tournament, held recently at Telkom Park, Milnerton, consisting of 16 teams from throughout Cape Town.

The 23-member squad is part of an overall contingent of almost 300 players, who represent SPICE4LIFE in the various Dunoon Football Association leagues – the games are played over weekends at Telkom Park, Milnerton, due to the lack of local facilities – and range from under nine years old to under nineteen years old – including under thirteen years old and under fifteen years old ladies teams.

At a ceremony at the SPICE4LIFE offices in Milnerton, Mandla and members of the team presented the Build-It trophy to owner Michelle Korevaar, as a token of their appreciation for her continued support and inspiration. Says Michelle: “I am humbled at every turn, by the dedication of Mandla and his team to being their best. Against all odds the team practice consistently and are committed to the culture of the SPICE4LIFE Youth Academy motto: ‘Win or lose, I will always do my best.’ They deserve these accolades and I am so proud to be associated with them.”
