We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Claudio Antoniozzi and Sikha Nkosi. These boys were chosen to represent their province (Northern Gauteng). They participated in the interprovincial tournament known as the Bill Stewart tournament, which was held at St David’s College in Johannesburg, over the winter school break.  Sikanyiso made the 1st team known as Northerns and Claudio made the second team referred to as Pretoria.. You have made us proud.

We would also like to congratulate the following players for making the Football Association of Pretoria (FAP) inter-district team: Lenaic and Tarek (U11) as well as Jason and Maticky (U17). Well done lads.

KBFC at the 2014 Mafikeng Invitational tournament

26 Young soccer stars in the making, ranging from age 13 – 17 years of age, travelled to Mafikeng on the 11-13 of July to participate in an invitational tournament. The tournament is aimed at promoting development at the U16 and U19 levels respectively. It also played host to top local teams. The International school of South Africa (ISSA) were represented by their U16 team and their 1st team. “The Peacemakers” and “Joys Academy” also featured.  The young men from Kaela made fantastic memories at the tournament in Mafikeng. The Kaela U16 team opened the tournament account, losing out 2-0 to the ISSA 1st team on Friday afternoon, the 11th of July. The game was an action packed affair, and the players from Kaela fought bravely against players 3 years their seniors.  The U17s, who played simultaneously, managed an impressive win, 3-1 against ISSA’s U16 team. The next morning dawned and looked hopeful as the U17s beat the ISSA 1st team 5-3 after a nail-biting penalty shootout. The match had ended in a 1-1 draw during normal regulation time. The U16s drew 2-2 with ISSA’s U16s in their match on Saturday morning. The afternoon matches proved to be smooth sailing, as the Kaela boys coolly concluded the day with a win over peacemakers and Joy Academy respectively. On Sunday morning the players faced a tougher Peacemakers side, the U19’s, to round off the invitational tournament. The boys lost 3-1 to the Peacemakers, who had travelled from the surrounding township to compete against Kaela Club.

Kaela Starlet Joins U17 National Squad

When Tshepiso Mahlangu started out at Kaela football club, he could only have dreamed of his eventual success. He began playing at the club in January of 2012 as a thirteen year old, playing for the football association of Pretoria (FAP) district team where his team missed out narrowly in an inter-district tournament in the final, and developed significantly in his centre midfield role for the club. Under the guidance of a committed coach, a supportive team and a positive environment, Tshepi as he is affectionately known by his Kaela teammates, grew in fitness and strength. Fitness tests revealed Tshepi’s impressive improvements scoring highly on the well-known “beep” and “multi-stage” fitness tests.

Tshepi’s was noticed on many occasions by important people. Sundowns showed their interest in the young midfielder in 2012 in the district tournament but he couldn’t make it past the second round of assessments. Encouraged by this, Kaela backed their player to go even further. During a FAP league encounter, Tshepi impressed again. Playing against Glenweigans, Tshepi evidently stood out to Ricardo Katza (Supersport’s development coach) who later enquired about the young talent. Tshepi then went on to join the Supersport squad in their pre-season trainings and preparations. Supersport academy, interested and excited by the new talent, acquired the young man. Tshepi learnt and grew a great deal during his time with Kaela FC (over a year) and has subsequently played in the future champs tournament for Supersport football club, representing them at the U15 and U17 levels.

Tshepi now plays for Amajimbos, the junior national U17 team. In a recent tour, Tshepi helped his team to secure 2-0 and 1-0 clean-sheet victories over Botswana and Lesotho respectively, playing as a defender. Tshepi represented Amajimbos in Dar es Salaam – the Tanzanian capital – at the U17 African Championship qualifiers. Tshepi’s development into a rock-solid central defender has excited Kaela and the country; we look forward to seeing him representing Bafana Bafana in the future.

Tshepi’s story is a testament to the coaches and atmosphere prized at Kaela FC and the importance of development in the country as a whole. Kaela has served and will continue to serve soccer players and people as long as there is need. We congratulate Tshepiso and wish him well in his continued development into a wonderful soccer player and young man.

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.
