Varsity Football

UWC Overflowing With Talent

UWC are currently enjoying their best ever Varsity Football tournament and are just one win away from bagging their first title when they face TUT in the final on Thursday.
 
Their success this year was largely due to some great tactics by coach Salie Adams but some, if not most, of the praise should be put on a talented group of young players.
 
Adams has done well to get the most out of his players with each one performing their role brilliantly on the field and giving a 100 percent against some much more fancied opponents.
 
We focussed on four of those outstanding players who have been a marvel to watch this season.
 
Reon October
 
He is not only the team's goalkeeper, but captain as well and has been brilliant in organising his team's defence. He saved his team on a number of occasions with some great saves. He also pulled off some heroics in their penalty shootout win over Wits in the semifinal.
 
Ashwin Kounzie
 
Coach Salie Adams spoke a lot about this player's commitment on the field. He is an integral part of UWC's defence, which only conceded five goals during the league phase. His performance in Round Five against NWU-Pukke was one of the standout individual performances of the whole season. He defended like a demon in that game and also got the crucial goal, which gave his side the win.
 
Tapelo Sixishe
 
His pace on the ball tested a lot of defences in this year's competition. His ability to beat defenders gave UWC some much needed potency on attack and he will be a key to their chances in the final against TUT.
 
Thulani Mkosi
 
He has been the tournament's best player this year and is obviously favourite to win the Player of the Tournament award. He pulls the strings for UWC in the midfield and has been a nightmare for a lot of defences. He has shown he also has an eye for goal this year in some important wins for the team. He often receives a lot criticism from his coach for trying to do too much on the field, but his talent is undeniable.
 
These are just four of the many UWC players that have put up their hand this year and who have a bright future on the football pitch.
