Sport Klub Windhoek (SKW) was crowned champions of the inaugural NFA Khomas Under-15 League on Saturday.
In the deciding encounter of the season, SKW faced nemesis Ramblers at the NFA Technical Centre and it was the Olympia-based side SKW that hammered their opponents 4-0 to all but win the championship with 14 points, one ahead of second-place Ramblers. Tangeni Ndeitunga scored twp for the SKW with teammates Daniel Hassenpflug, and George Hummel adding one each.
Earlier on in the day, Tura Magic beat Nick Eleven by 3-1 to take the bronze medal in third place on five points, while Eleven finished bottom of the log on a single point after six matches played in the Top-Four Championship.
in the B League, Katutura Youth Academy finished top on 12 points after four games played, followed by Katsville with seven points and Windhoek United in third also on seven points, while Kaizen Football Academy finished fourth on one point and Mario Football Academy last also with a point from four games.
SKW cemented their dominance of local youth football as they have earlier also had their under-17 team win the NFA Khomas Under-17 League.
The NFA in April 2012 launched the Pilot Youth Leagues Project with the primary objective of ensuring that structures are in place to streamline youth football and nurture its development.
Youth Football was solely left to schools to run in the past, but about three years ago with the introduction of the NFA's Youth Development through Football (YDF) programme, the rationale changed.
