Clapham Win Kay Motsepe Cup

Clapham College has clinched the Sanlam Kay Motsepe Schools Cup by beating Louis Botha High School 2-1 in the final at the King Zwelithini Stadium in Umlazi, Durban.

The Clapham College boys were the favourites to win the R1 million prize money, having scored 23 goals and only conceding one in the seven games prior to the final. Going into the final, Louis Botha High School had drawn two of their seven games, scoring 14 goals and conceding two.

The annual tournament is run under the auspices of the South African Football Association and is named after prominent businessman Patrice Motsepe’s late mother. It offers the biggest prize money at school level in Africa at a total of R3.4 million.

The primary objective of the tournament is to revive the culture of school football amongst students between the ages of 16 and 19 years old. The tournament also gives players the opportunity to showcase their skills to scouts, with the talented players being recruited into development structures to be nurtured and shaped into professional players.

Motsepe, owner of Mamelodi Sundowns, the club that most of the players belong to, was there to hand out the trophy.

"I am so happy,” said leading goal scorer, Khayelihle Shozi, who finished on 7 goals, in a statement. "To play before my president and all the scouts that put me where I am today was an honour. I wanted to show them that the decision to bring me into the Sundowns Academy was the right one."

Rosina Sedibane Modiba beat Harmony High school 2-1 to clinch third place.
