SKW Youth Tournament a big Success
48 Teams converged on the SKW premises during last weekend to compete in 78 Games and determine the Winner in each of the U/8, U/9, U/11, U/13, U/15 and U/17 categories. Guided by the excellent management team of the SKW Youth Division the tournament set very high standards both in organizational ability and disciple maintained by all teams involved.
Eventual winners of the different age groups came from various Football Clubs and Youth Academies. "The fact that over 48 teams showed up goes to show that the Clubs and Academies have whole heartedly embraced the concept of youth development at club level. If the commitment and effort show by all involved continues in the same vein we are certainly on the right way to building a healthy base for Football development in Namibia" these were the words of SKW PR Manager Rolf Beiter when the tournament finally came to an end on Sunday afternoon. "Special mention must also go to Retirement Fund Solutions who came to the party as main sponsors of this tournament" Beiter continued.
Looking at the action on the pitch, Swallows FC were the winners of the Under 8 age group, they beat Swakopmund Fußball Club (SFC) in the final. The final of the Under 9 age group was played out between Khomas Football Academy (KFA) and Namibia Youth Football Development Program (NYFDP) with KFA scoring a 2-0 victory. SFC were once again on the losing side when they were beaten 1-0 by Ramblers FC in the U/11 age Group. NYFDP displayed total dominance in the U/13 age Group when they hammered Ramblers FC 8-2 in the final. The first of two finals between Cymot SKW and Ramblers FC went Ramblers way; they secured the Cup in the U/15 age group with a 2-0 victory.
The highlight of the day came in the under 17 final, once again it was Ramblers and Cymot SKW who entertained the crowd with a 3 all draw. Ramblers took an early lead but soon found themselves 2-1 behind. They managed to equalize in the second half and scored another to take a 3-2 lead. Cymot SKW however grabbed an equalizer shortly before the end of the game. This meant that the winner had to be determined via a penalty shootout. Cymot SKW eventually ran out 5-4 winners of a tense and hard fought final.
