ST MARKS HIGH SCHOOL WINS THE COPA COCA-COLA MPUMALANGA PROVINCIAL FINALS

Elukwatini Stadium, St Marks High School from Nelspruit are the new COPA Coca-Cola® Mpumalanga champions.

 

The school won the provincial finals tournament hosted by Coca-Cola, in conjunction with the South African Schools Football Association (SASFA), held at Elukwatini Stadium after taking on their opponents in the round robin style tournament.

 

COPA Coca-Cola® is a global football development initiative that gives millions of young football fans the opportunity to come together and celebrate their passion for football.

 

As part and parcel of this initiative, the Which Part Will You Play search is once again on, with Coca-Cola looking out for exceptional young players to join the Which Part Will You Play all-star team. Players embodying and representing the dynamic and unique roles needed to make up a successful team will be selected for the side and act as personifications of the values COPA Coca-Cola® aims to instill in its young participants. 

 

This week, Freedom Malamule from Dumphries High School was selected as the last player to join the Which Part Will You Play all-stars team after being identified as The Artist.  Malamule was chosen after being identified as a player controls the ball as if it’s attached to his feet, and kicks it like he’s willing it with his mind. Off the field he brings his hypnotizing style to everything he touches, including his friendships. He’s very easy to get along with. He’s captivating, creative and restless.

 

“I’m very excited that I will be going to the National Finals in a few weeks. This is hard though because our team didn’t make it, we made a few mistakes that we shouldn’t have made, especially in our defense, but this just means that we have to improve. Thank you Coca-Cola for making my dreams come true.’’

In addition to the Which Part Will You Play all-stars, COPA Coca-Cola® will be picking one individual in each province who has shown the part they are playing in the development of young footballers. Each of these individuals will be recognized with the title of ‘the Mentor’ and rewarded by Coca-Cola for the contribution they are making to the development of South Africa’s youth.

 

Mr. Siboniso Chiloane has been named as ‘the Mentor’ in Mpumalanga. Chiloane was selected in recognition of being a dedicated and willing coach, coaching kids who are as young as 9 years old. He has shown a spirit of dedication a d has been grooming players who have made a difference in their communities.

 

“Wow. I know that I am a dedicated individual who truly loves to look after the footballers in my community, as much as people in my community notice my efforts, I didn’t know that other people are also watching me” said an elated Chiloane.
