Amon Wants To Repay NWU Fans

NWU defender, Kyle Amon, says that his side want to repay their loyal fans by securing a home semi-final in Mafikeng.
 
NWU are unbeaten heading into their final round robin game against Kovsies next week, but need a win in Bloemfontein to ensure that they will be hosting a semifinal in Mafikeng the following Monday.
 
Amon was part of the team that beat Kovsies 6-1 last year, and he is hoping for a similar performance as they head towards the knock-out phase of the tournament.
 
"Everywhere you go on campus people are talking about how they want a home semifinal, so we really want to give the fans that and it will be good for our confidence as well," he said.
 
Amon grew up in Cape Town and attended the Western Cape Sports School where he took up football in Grade 10. He moved to Mafikeng after school and says he has learned a lot at NWU's soccer institute in the last three years.
 
Having been part of the team that got knocked out of Varsity Football in the semifinals last year, he believes that this year's side have a better chance of going on to win it.
 
"Last year we had a lot of talented individuals, but this year we are more of a team and play as a unit," he explained.
 
Amon recently returned from Zambia where he represented South Africa in a USSA invitational side and hopes to play professionally overseas one day.
 
"I would love to go overseas once I am finished studying, so we will see what comes along," he said.
