Beukes Backs UWC Growth

UWC vice-captain, Curtley Beukes, says the team will keep improving even though their season in Varsity Football is over.

The influential striker has made it clear that the players are keen to come back with a vengeance next year and are motivated to get back into the tournament with a successful run in the USSA qualifiers.

UWC missed out on a place in the final four of the competition after a 3-3 draw to neighbours UCT, but Beukes says they have been improving with every game and will continue to do so.

“We have a strong squad of players who have really come together after starting the season slowly. We got better as the season progressed and it’s important that we continue to do that.

“We need to move on and focus on getting back into the competition next year, so that will be or aim from now on,” he said.

Earlier in the season coach, Boebie Williams, slammed the UWC players for not playing as a team, saying many were being selfish and wanted to steal the spotlight from other players.

However, Beukes says the players have come a long way since then and have worked hard to play as team.

“Both coaches had strong words with us and emphasized the importance of working together as a team, backing each other up on the field and playing a passing game.

“The players reacted well to that and we started working together as a unit and the results started changing. We will use that as a platform to grow and improve in future,” Beukes added.

The stand-in skipper lauded left –winger Thulani Mkosi, goalkeeper Reon October and playmaker Tapelo Sixishe for their performances this season, but says all the players deserve a pat on the back for their efforts on the pitch.
