Dolly Takes Part In Discovery Tournament
Keagan Dolly Takes Part in Discovery Youth Tournament
Bafana Bafana international, Keagan Dolly, has spoken on his decision to take part in the annual Discover Walter Sisulu Soccer Challenge, giving back to the youth.
The winger, who is currently based in France, played for La Masia FC in the quarterfinals of the Discover Challenge where he helped the team to a 1-0 win against Meadowlands Academy.
Speaking in a press-release, Dolly said, “I’ve always heard a lot about this tournament (Discovery Walter Sisulu Soccer Challenge) while I was growing up.”
“I always knew how big it was. Some of the best talents we have in this country always turn up to showcase their talents here. It just felt good to come back and play in front of a (big) crowd with a group of fellows I grew up with.
“It was good to have a run with them (old friends) and also make them aware that (he was still the same Keagan they grew up with). My other intention was to keep fit because eight days without doing something to help you keep in shape is pretty bad.
“It was also to inspire the up and coming young ones by sharing my experiences with them so that they can believe that: ‘If Keagan made it’, then they too could do the same. My advice to them is that they must just keep working hard because you never know who is watching.”
