September’s Knysna U16 Tournament To Begin

The Knysna area is known for its breath-taking seaside resorts, but next week football will be the centre of attention when SuperSport United defender, Thabo September, hosts the annual Thabo September U16 Tournament.

The Thabo September U16, which features 16 teams from the Knynsa, George, Mossel Bay and surrounding areas in the Southern-Western Cape, will be played between 22 and 23 June 2013 at the Lorie Park Stadium in Knysna. 

The tournament is the brainchild of September, who hails from the same area and is determined to give back to the community in which he grew up.

September said: “I’m really looking forward to this year’s tournament. The event has been growing in stature every year and I’m exciting about this project. As many people know, we do not have a professional football side here in Knynsa and the youngsters from this area need to have something to aspire towards; they need an opportunity to showcase their talent and this tournament provides such a platform.”

Two youngsters from last year’s tournament were spotted by September’s side, SuperSport, and are now part of the club’s development structures.

September said he came up with the concept after realising that there was a need for an event of this nature. “Basically, I saw a need and I decided to do something about it. I might not have much but I believe that with the little that I have, I can make a meaningful contribution to my community. We have to produce more footballers in this region.”
