In the recent news, Bakerville primary school based at Johannesburg has qualified for the 2nd qualification in the Danone Nations Cup National Finals. An interview was conducted between SASFA and Mr Siya Marawu.
Mr Siya Marawu responded and said everything is fine regarding the preparations. When asked how he see his chances in 2016 noting that in 2012 he won the tournament he said that he is looking forward to the tournament, the team is happy, excited and ever so ready for the National Finals. “There is no pressure at all” added Marawu.
It seems Bakerville Primary School is getting all the support from the parents and the community at large. Mr Marawu was asked if there are any players that must be watched this time around and he told us about the 3 boys from which he regarded them as the strongest ones, he told us about his striker “Chisa” and two midfielders “Chiza” and “Mortician”.
He confirmed that the Bakerville Primary School doesn’t have any slogan and the advice that Mr Marawu can give other schools out there is that teams out there must work very hard to reach this stage that they also reached and that it will work on their advantage because they will gain a lot of experience and it’s really a great feeling and there’s a lot to learn.
To conclude Mr Marawu told us that if he gets a chance to go to France, he will impress the other teams that he will be playing with by first building his players to be strong since he noticed that most South African boys are short so they need to be at least strong enough in order to tackle other teams.
