Man Of Match yesterday, Leonardo Alves Gomez 4 (goals) and u/15 player Wilem Tjizu with two goals in Cymot SKW u/17 8 KAYEC 4 victory. Tjizu after scoring his second, being congratulated by captain Leonardo Alves (No9) who also showed a solid performance. Marko Zirzow in goals once more undermined his national ambitions by having stunning saves during the match. Zirzow also only is still 15 years young and already without doubt a regular starter in the u/17 squad of Sport  Klub Windhoek. The other two goals were scored by Marcel Morris.

Cymot SKW new blood went down to log leader Khomas Football Academy (KFA).  The Cymot boys were better during the first half and conceded early in the second. Although SKW had several chances to equalise it was the log leader who put things beyond doubt in injury time. Final score KFA 2 SKW 0, while Marko Zirzow and Marcel Morris were SKW's best.

22 May 2011 - Cymot SKW u/17 2 Invincible 1 Leonardo Gomez Alves Marcel Mais scores for SKW

SKW outplayed their counterparts by showing entertaining football last Sunday but seemingly forgetting to score. The opponents made it easy for SKW as they were playing tactically unwise and therefore the SKW forward’s had an easy approach via the sides/flanks. SKW u/15 player Carsten Horn, who had some fitness deficit after a three week long injury break, was brought back into the starting line-up and rewarded his coach Martin Brosda with a solid performance. Invincible Football Club took the lead by a goalkeeper error in the second minute but SKW replied via a penalty from Leonardo Gomez Alves. Towards the end of the first half Wilem Tjizu had a 20m cracker which hit the crossbar. Shortly after restart Horn missed a sitter while Gomez Alves missed a second penalty a few minutes later. Invincible started to loose their temper and discipline and tried with very hard tackles to break SKW's rhythm, receiving various yellow- and a red card. Again it was a clear penalty which decided the match. Marcel Mais made no mistake in converting the spot kick. After the match SKW players were singing and celebrating while some opposing players showed their frustration in foul language and aggression.

Thursday,25 May 2011 SKW will play Khomas Chiefs at 15h00 on the SKW B Field.

FNB Namibia Legacy Festival launched - Submitted by editor on Sun, 06/05/2011

First National Bank Namibia on Friday launched the FNB Namibia Legacy Under 17 Football Festival which will be held at the Khomasdal Stadium in Windhoek from June 16 to 18.

The Football Festival forms part of a larger FNB Africa initiative that will also involve teams from South Africa and Zimbabwe.

A total of eight teams will participate in Under 17 boys and girls matches, with each team being linked to a Premier League club. The participating clubs are African Stars, Black Africa, Oshakati City, Eleven Arrows, Ramblers, SKW, Tigers and Orlando Pirates.

After the tournament an Under 17 boys and U17 girls squad will be selected, which will be trained and prepared for the FNB Lucas Radebe International Legacy Festival at the FNB Stadium in Soweto, South Africa from October 3 to 9.

“This project is the result of the 2010 FIFA World Cup being hosted in Africa and FNB’s wish to leave a legacy behind now that the hype of the World Cup has subsided,” FNB Namibia’s Head Strategic Marketing and Communication, Dixon Norval said.

“Through this initiative we do not only wish to promote the existing and longstanding Premier League soccer teams as part of our ongoing sponsorship, but also to promote soccer development amongst younger players, which we hope will ensure that youngsters are encouraged and motivated to play this great game in and outside the borders of Namibia. It also supports the FIFA requirement that NPL clubs must have proper youth development plans,” Norval added.

Former Black Africa star player Lolo Goraseb will be FNB’s ambassador for the programme in Namibia, while several NPL coaches will act as scouts to select the FNB Namibian Invitational boys and girls squads. They include Bobby Samaria of African Stars, Ali Akan of Civics and Congo Hindjou of Eleven Arrows.

Norval added that Zambian soccer legend Kalusha Bwalya will be in Windhoek to support the Football Festival.

The eight participating NPL clubs will be responsible to put their youth development teams together and if they do not have teams available, they will adopt schools.

At the launch, the draw was made for the matches, while schools were also allocated to the participating teams. Black Africa will adopt Eldorado Secondary School, Tigers will adopt Jan Jonker Afrikaner, Orlando Pirates will adopt St Paul’s College, African Stars will adopt Windhoek High School, Oshakati City will adopt St Georges Diocesan School, Ramblers will adopt Delta Secondary School and Eleven Arrows will adopt Concordia College.

The draw for the first round matches on June 16 is as follows:

Ramblers v Black Africa
Tigers v Orlando Pirates
African Stars v SKW
Oshakati City v Eleven Arrows

Eleven Arrows gewinnen U17-Turnier in Khomasdal - Vom 21.06.2011 Quelle AZ online

Bereits am vergangenen Donnerstag hatten Namibias Fußball-Ikone Lolo Goraseb und Sambias Sportler des Jahrhunderts, Kalusha Bwalya, das FNB-Legacy-Turnier eröffnet. Am Samstag stand schließlich der Sieger fest. Sein Name: Eleven Arrows Football Club.

Die U17-Auswahl des NFA-Pokalsiegers musste im Finale allerdings zittern: Erst im Elfmeterschießen besiegten die Arrows die Windhoeker Ramblers mit 5:4, nachdem nach neunzig Minuten kein Sieger ermittelt werden konnte (1:1). Im Halbfinale hatten sich die Arrows zuvor mit 2:0 gegen die U17-Auswahl des Sportklub Windhoek (SKW) durchgesetzt, während die Ramblers ebenfalls mit 2:0 über Black Africa triumphierten. Bei den Mädchen holte das Team aus Oshakati einen 1:0-Finalsieg – ebenfalls gegen die Ramblers.

Eins der spannendsten Spiele des Turniers stand im Viertelfinale am Samstagmorgen an: Die SKW-Mannschaft von Trainer Martin Brosda traf auf das aus dem Norden angereiste Team von Oshakati City. Nachdem Willem Tjizu für die 1:0-Führung für den SKW gesorgt hatte, stand es zur Pause 1:1. Kurz nach Wiederanpfiff sorgte Marcel Morris für das 2:1, erzielte mit einem Elfmeter später zudem einen weiteren Treffer. Nach dem 2:3-Anschluss musste der SKW jedoch noch gehörig zittern, ehe Leonardo Gomes seine Mitspieler schließlich mit dem 4:2 erlöste.

Ziel des Turniers sei es, so Lolo Goraseb, das Vermächtnis der ersten auf afrikanischem Boden ausgetragenen Fußball-Weltmeisterschaft zu bewahren: „Fußball hat mit dem Ende der WM nicht aufgehört“, sagte der ehemalige Brave-Warriors-Star. Auch Sambias Sportler des Jahrhunderts, Kalusha Bwalya, schlug in dieselbe Kerbe. Es freue ihn, dass mit dem „Legacy“-Turnierprogramm (zu deutsch: „Vermächtnis“) der FNB auch nach der WM noch vom Fußball profitiert werden könne.

Die „Legacy“-Reihe verbindet Turniere in verschiedenen Ländern des südlichen Afrika dadurch, dass bei jedem Turnier eine nationale Auswahlmannschaft gebildet wird, die ihr jeweiliges Heimatland zwischen dem 3. und 9. Oktober beim Lucas-Radebe-Fußballfestival in Soweto vertritt. Sieben SKW-Spieler (Erik Fischer,Leonardo Gomes,Mckey Mbala, Tristan Minz, Ngumeritiga Muvangua, Thilo Wilckens und Marko Zirzow) wurden für Namibias Auswahl nominiert.

Cymot SKW u/17 2 Tura Magic 0 - Saturday 25 June 2011

Two goals from midfielder Immanuel Elifas who showed of a five star performance sunk Tura Magic in the Sam Nujoma Stadium. SKW could have scored more goals, but their strikers misfired recklessly. Tactically and football wise SKW outclassed their opponents. While Thilo Wilckens and Ngumeritiga Muvangua marshaled the SKW defence in superb manner Elifas pulled the strings in midfield together with Ileni Mhako. Lots of pressure came over the right midfield when Carsten Horn combined brilliant with the striking force Marcel Morris and Leonardo Alves Gomes, splitting the defence of Tura Magic time and again.
