House of fears TAURIQ HASSEN


ears for their personal safety have residents giving a Langevlei house wide berth. The complaints – made to ward councillor Jan Burger and the Steenberg Community Police Forum (CPF) – range from alleged drug dealing to smoking dagga and overcrowding. Residents also allege criminals use the house as a hideout. These complaints have also been lodged with various City of Cape Town departments, but, say residents, to no avail. A resident, only known as Sam, says she passes the house regularly and has seen the situation go from “bad to worse”. “There are always people hanging around that place, talking in some gangster language and making stupid gestures when people pass by. They smoke dagga in the open for all to see,” she says. “It has been going on for long now and it seems like nobody cares.” Sam says school children are also going into the house, with many going in groups to make “quick visits”. “They (could be) starting to sell drugs to school children or may even be using the children as runners. This problem must be highlighted because places such as these are the cause of the bigger problem (of gangsterism) our community faces,” says an angry Sam. Jason Adams has worked in Retreat for the last 12 years and regularly passes the house on his way to Retreat station. He says there is always a group of men on the front porch of the house either drinking or smoking dagga, which often leads to passers-by being harassed. “They will sometimes ask the people for money (and ) get upset if you say ‘no’,” he says. While he does not fear the men, Adams says he is concerned as more and more school children frequent the house. He says this also happens during school hours, and the school children “will be among these men, which is not right”. Adams adds: “How can they can do things so openly and not be caught?” A group of men huddling on the premises questioned why this reporter was at the house.

A CONCERN: Allegations have been made of illegal activities at a house in Langevlei. Complaints have been made to the Steenberg CPF and the local ward councillor, but residents say they fear for their personal safety. PHOTO: TAURIQ HASSEN For Burger these are not new complaints. “I have received numerous complaints from the community about this problem house and it has been forwarded to the relevant departments for action,” he says. A further worry for Burger are allegations of school children going to the house. This has prompted Burger to conduct an inspection of the property. According to Burger, school children have pointed to the house as the source of alleged illegal activities. “I can believe what people are saying and I have seen it myself. This is not solely a City of Cape Town matter, but the police must also act on complaints,” he says. Concerns about the Langevlei house have also reached the Steenberg CPF. CPF chairperson Kevin Southgate says while they’re aware of the complaints, “there is nothing more the community can do”. He calls upon police to properly address the matter. “This house is a known outlet for illegal activities and police have in the past conducted several raids on a number of occa-

sions. “Certainly this is not enough because the problems still persist and the community is suffering (as a result),” he says. Southgate says the public fear for their lives and will choose not to approach Law Enforcement agencies to report these activities. “The police must take this matter further and they have to take responsibility for this house. They (police) must do their jobs and protect the community from these illegal activities,” he says. Mark Russouw is the media liaison officer for the Sector 2 Neighbourhood Watch and is familiar with the alleged activities at the house. “That is a known drug den in the community and police have raided that house on a number of occasions,” he says. Russouw explains that last year, the Retreat community was rocked when a driveby shooting targeted at the house claimed three lives over the Easter weekend. “That place is really dodgy and there are all sorts of characters walking in and out of the house,” he says.

Steenberg Police Station acting station commander Lieutenant Colonel Adriaan Saulse, in turn, calls upon the community to provide police with “direct and accurate information”. Confirming that the police had previously searched the property, Saulse adds: “We sometimes find things (contraband) and there are times we leave with nothing. That is why it is important for the public to give us proper information, like exactly when the activities are taking place.” Saulse confirms the house has been on police’s radar for some time. “We have a full profile on that house and there are frequent operations conducted, but it will certainly help if the public (assists),” he says. People’s Post attempted to track down the owners of the house, but were unsuccessful at the time of going to print.

The ABC of adult education TASMIN CUPIDO


ou’re never too old to learn the alphabet, algebra, the anatomy of humans and plants and the ins and outs of apart-

heid. This is being proven by adult pupils from across the country who have taken the bold decision to return to school benches to complete their primary and high school education. With a total of 119 Adult Education and Training (AET) Centres in the province, and several satellite campuses, the doors to education have been thrust open for young and old. Hester de Klerk was 12 years old when she left school and entered the working world. She was “forced” to drop out after her father left their family home “in search of greener pastures”. “My mother told me I had to leave school and start working to help support the family,” she recalls. “In those times you did as you were told – you didn’t ask questions. I wanted to stay in school. I wanted to make something of myself. I wanted to be somebody with an education.” The 66-year-old started working as a farm labourer and soon excelled in the field. “I really enjoyed working, but I missed being around children my age. I missed being at school, homework, playing... But I knew I had to help bring food to the table, so I made the most of my situation,” De Klerk says. “I was a little girl in a grown-up world; I had to grow up before my time.” After marriage and bearing four children, who have all achieved degrees and excelled in their professions, she retired six years ago. “When I finished that chapter of my life, I realised there was something I needed to finish. I wanted something to show for my

years of dedication to my family,” she says. “A friend of mine encouraged me to enrol in the AET programme. Since starting, I have been having so much fun and I feel I am fulfilling my life-long dream.” Similarly, 60-year-old Judy Klaasen is living her dream, after enrolling at an AET Centre this year. Growing up in a rural area, she never had the opportunity to attend school. “I was the oldest of eight siblings. My father passed away when I was only seven and my mother went out to work,” she says. “I had to look after my brothers and sisters. With my mother working really long hours, I was like their mother. I cooked, cleaned, took them to school and made sure they did their homework. “But I always dreamt of what it would be like to be in school; to read a book and write a poem; to have friends.” When she moved to Cape Town with her son and his family three years ago, she undertook a “pledge” to herself. “I wanted to be able to read a story to my grandson, so I enrolled and took the first steps to achieving my dream,” Klaasen says. “For the last two years I have been a normal school pupil, diligently doing my homework and assignments, and studying for exams. It has been unreal. I feel like a little child – I am so excited to go to school. ” And although she has a long way to go before graduation, she is determined to make the most of her opportunity. “When I look at words these days, nothing is foreign – I understand everything. I constantly read and learn every day.” But adult education is not just for people older than 50. Across the country, youths have been dropping out of school due to socio-economic problems. Addiction to drugs and alcohol, absent parents, teenage pregnancies and gangsterism are some of the reasons provided by school leavers. Gail Botha* fell pregnant at the tender age of 15. At the time she was in Grade 9 and her single-parent mother decided she should drop out of school. “I was devastated, but I realised I made a mistake and had to man up – there was a baby that needed to be clothed and fed,” she recalls. After giving birth to the child, she was employed as a cleaner at a supermarket. She raised her now eight-year-old son without the help of his father and decided to “better her life” in 2008. “It was a tough decision – my son needed attention and work was demanding, but I had to do something for myself today. I am not sorry, it was the best decision I have ever made,” the 23-yearold says. “I am proud to say that I have my matric and I’m planning to further my studies in business management.” Provincial education department spokesperson Paddy Attwell says there are 65 AET Centres across the Cape Peninsula. A total of 31 444 pupils are currently enrolled in the programme, while the province currently boasts with a 66.7% pass rate. “(Future pupils) can register at a centre closest to their homes. Centre managers and

Level 1 – equivalent to Grades 1, 2 and 3 – is for basic literacy and numeracy, while Level 2 is slightly more advanced and includes Communication, Numeracy and Integrated Studies learning areas. This level is equivalent to Grades 4 and 5. “Level 3 offers the same three learning areas, at Grade 6 and 7 levels, while Level 4 offers courses equivalent to Grades 8 and 9. Pupils earn credits per course – 120 credits is needed to obtain a General Education and Training Certificate,” Attwell says. “They can choose from a wide range of courses, but the credits for courses differ. They can obtain 120 credits by completing five to seven courses.” Pupils can choose between the academic and vocational stream, while those who previously registered for matric, and need to rewrite subjects, can complete the course based on the old curriculum.

In the academic stream pupils can choose normal subjects, while the vocational stream offers subjects such as Travel and Tourism and Ancillary Healthcare. Attwell says pupils enrolling in the programme must be 16 and older. “They need to have an identity document and copies of their highest grades or standards passed, if available. Centres will also assess them to place them at the appropriate levels,” he says. “Those registering for Levels 1 to 3 do so at the beginning of each year, while Level 4 has two intakes, at the beginning of the year and during the last two weeks of July.” If you want to register for the mid-year matric exams in May and June next year, you need to register by the end of September. *Not her real name.

The City of Cape Town uses R880m of the money which people pay for their electricity to deliver other municipal services. Deputy mayor Ian Nielson confirmed that 10% of the City’s budgeted sales of electricity, or R880m, is used to finance services such as roads, public transport, clinics and libraries. The City pays 65% of the income from the sale of electricity, which it distributes on behalf of Eskom, to Eskom for the wholesale electricity account. In addition to the 10% fee which is used for “other services”, the City uses 25% of the amount which people pay for their electricity to maintain the electricity infrastructure. Imraahn Mukaddam, national director for the organisation Consumer Fair, said that charges of corruption have been submitted against the mayor, deputy mayor and City Manager of Cape Town. Mukaddam argues that the additional

costs which municipalities add to Eskom tariff increases to make money from taxpayers, is corrupt. He argues further that the formula used by the City to increase tariffs from Saturday 1 June is unfair and some households must pay more than 56% more for electricity. Neilson says the 56% only applies to “one specific block of tariffs”. In households which receive subsidised electricity because they are part of the “lifeline tariff block”, the monthly electricity account will show that true increase is “only 17%”. This is how electricity increases for the poor. . The lifeline tariff for electricity usage less than 350kWh a month is 79.7c/kWh. . As soon as a household on the lifeline tariff uses more than 350kWh a month, the tariff shoots up to 185c/kWh. . Consumers must pay VAT on top of this tariff, which pushes the 79.7c/kWh to

90.86c/kWh and the 185c/kWh up to 210c/ kWh. . Neilson says it gets confusing because consumers on the lifeline tariff which use less than 250kWh a month get 60kWh for free and thus only pay for 190kWh. . The consumers who use between 250 and 450kWh get only 25kWh for free and they then also pay 185 c/kWh for electricity usage if they use more than 350kWh. Nielson says the National Energy Regulator (Nersa) requested that the City restructure its tariff scale. “It has a negative impact on consumers, in particular consumption levels, and for this reason the City decided to adjust the scale of free electricity.” Poor families fall mostly in the scale which uses less than 250kWh a month and the City has increased the amount of free electricity from 50kWh to 60kWh. “It is higher than the national average which requires consumers that use less than 150kWh receive 50kWh for free.”

Big dreams for Zandvlei



onstruction of a wooden wheelchairfriendly walkway is included in the plans for a revamped Zandvlei. The revamp is expected to cost an estimated R1m, but the Muizenberg/Lakeside Residents’ Association hopes the City of Cape Town will join in a partnership. This dream for the Zandvlei Trail was revealed at the annual meeting of the association held at the False Bay Rendezvous in Promenade Road on Thursday evening. Phase one would be a laterite pathway from the caravan park to the yacht club, but the dream for the future is to extend the walkway through the Westlake wetlands, the upper reaches of Zandvlei Nature Reserve and Park Island. Extensive planting of strandveld vegetation is envisioned for the east bank. Association chairperson Robin Solomon describes parts of the vlei as a “windswept wilderness”. He adds these improvements would enhance the usage of the vlei, which he notes has already increased dramatically. “It’s not going to be quick and it’s not going to be cheap,” he adds. The laterite pathway would make the vlei accessible for the elderly, as well as bicycles and prams. The vision includes using benches which look like wood but are made of plastic to reduce maintenance and for the com-

TAURIQ HASSEN Village Heights residents will soon be able to enjoy their own urban park which will replicate the one in Green Point. Called The Other Side of the Fence, the initiative is a pilot project by the False Bay Ecology Park and aims to improve the public open space. But this will be a green space with a difference. The Village Heights community garden will include a flower garden, vegetable garden and a children’s play area which is to be established within a proclaimed road reserve. While it would be expected of Village Heights residents to welcome the urban park, set to cost the City of Cape Town about R300 000, this is not the case. Ayesha Davids, a community worker in Village Heights, says many residents are frowning at the lack of communication from the City of Cape Town. “We only heard about this project (about) two months ago and there are some community members who are upset at what is currently unfolding at the site,” she says. Construction of the play area is near completion. And work has already started on the vegetable garden. Work on the garden itself has yet to com-

munity to design “more exciting” playgrounds. Bird hides, more educational murals and signage and a simple outdoor exercise circuit are also mentioned as possible inclusions in later phases in a poster about the Zandvlei Trail. Special thanks was extended to the Roland and Leta Hill Trust for providing R35 000 for the initial planting. Solomon says the wetland at Clovelly would be their guide for the design of the Zandvlei Trail. Asked when this would commence, Solomon says “as soon as we have the money”, adding an Environmental Impact Assessment Process would need to be completed. A specialist will be appointed to manage the planting. Ward councillor David D’Alton says: “It’s an excellent idea by the association. I am prepared to work closely with them to make it a reality.” D’Alton also answered a barrage of questions in a detailed question and answer session, which lasted over an hour. Issues covered included the regulation of the market at Sunrise Beach and the upgrade of balustrading on the St James walkway.

A community garden to be proud of mence, but it is earmarked to begin during the current financial year as funds become available. Davids says the community was not properly consulted on the project and adds several residents would have loved being involved in the planning stages of the development. “We are not saying we don’t want any developments in our community because we know a garden would certainly benefit the community,” she says. “Some community members would have liked to have been more involved.” Village Heights resident Allan Noble has no issues with a community garden being established and hopes the facility could bring some “much-needed positivity” to the area. However, he says only a few weeks ago some residents heard of plans to introduce a community garden. “One does not mean to sound negative, especially seeing that this project sounds great for our community. It’s about respecting the people who live here and they (the City of Cape Town) cannot just do as they please with us,” he says. “It is a nice idea, but all some of the resi-

dents wanted was to be a bit more involved so they could also feel as if they contributed towards improving the community.” The aim of establishing a community garden is to provide a space for interactive environmental education; showcase indigenous flora unique to the Cape Floral Kingdom; create a place of community pride, and to relax, recreate and reflect on what happens on The Other Side of the Fence. However, Stephen Granger, manager for Strategic Projects at the City’s Environmental Resource Management Department, maintains comments from Village Heights residents were sought through workshops and meetings with the local community. “The project is a pilot initiative that seeks to draw the managers of protected areas into partnerships with communities which make up the social system outside of the protected area,” he says. Granger adds that the community garden “cannot overlook the socio-economic challenges” which are prevalent in Village Heights. “This is a unique opportunity to build positive relationships between the nature reserve and community which can demon-

strate the value of nature conservation to local communities,” he says. He confirms the project currently is not a dedicated City budget item, relying instead on improvised funding from the City and contributions from both City departments and civic society volunteers. There is also a vision that the community garden would create local employment opportunities in the form of community conservation officers, who would act as liaison officials between the community and nature reserve. They will also promote integration of the community into the nature reserve, manage and maintain the garden, as well as persons to be employed to enhance visible policing of the project. “The contribution of wider parties or organisations is welcomed to ensure the development of a sustainable project that can be transferred to other communities along the False Bay Ecology Park and other nature reserves in the city and across the country,” Granger says. “This is a unique opportunity to build positive relationships between the nature reserve and the community.” Work on the new Village Heights community garden is likely to be completed before December.

hining bright through the dark clouds hovering above Cafda Village is a group of teenagers hoping to create better futures for young women in their community. Last week, the group of UWC students hosted a women’s youth programme at the Sharon Assembly of God Church in Cafda Village. One of the organisers, secondyear Law student Meche van der Vent, says the idea first came about when they spotted a number of teenage girls hanging around aimlessly in the community. “We felt something needed to be done because we kept seeing girls hanging out on corners and in the streets, doing nothing constructive,” she says. Van der Vent hoped their event would teach the girls some self-respect as well as offer some career guidance. The church hall was filled with teenage girls who engaged in a number of life-skills exercises, while also participating in a host of fun and games. Fellow organiser, Nicole Richards, a Psychology student, explains that the programme is aimed

at shaping a better future for the girls. “Most of these girls come out of very difficult situations and this area always has so much negativity. Through our programme we hope they can see a better future for themselves,” she says. Van Rensburg says she also hopes others would be able to pick up from their valiant attempt to change the fate of their community by also trying to spread some of the positive energy in Cafda Village. “We also live in this community. We grew up here, so we know exactly how it is to be living in this type of community,” says Richards. “All we are doing is looking after our own people and making sure they get excited for their own futures.” The programme was underpinned by fun as screams of excitement could be heard from outside the venue. Passers-by could also not resist checking out the activity inside the hall, which sums up the effort put in by the young organisers. Lucinda Jacobs (14) from Cafda Village hopes to one day work in the field of tourism. When asked whether she was ex-

cited about her future prospects, she said: “This is a very difficult area to live in because you will see people dying all the time. How do I know the next bullet will not have my name on it?” But for that time and at that event she cast her doubts aside as she danced away and took part in every game, giving the thumbs up for the organisers of the event. Nadine Daniels (13) from Retreat has ambitions of some day standing in front of her own classroom. She has always dreamt of being a teacher. Nadine expressed her gratitude towards the organisers for taking an interest in the community and especially teenage girls. She also encourages others to start similar initiatives. “We have very little to look forward to because our area is always just about the gangsters. “If we don’t do things for ourselves, then things just won’t happen for us, which is why we are so grateful for programmes such as these,” says Nadine. “I hope the (organisers) sent out a solid message and we hope there are (many) more (groups) that could act like them.”

Vrygrond taxis ‘won’t leave Kirstenhof’ CHRISTELLE WIESE


he Vrygrond Taxi Association (VTA) and Law Enforcement are on a collision course. “We won’t stop!” So says Makhosanjile Tumana, chairperson of the VTA. This follows the arrest of one of their drivers, the impounding of one of their taxis and the issuing of several fines. “We are the victims. They are impounding our taxis and giving us big fines. It’s an insult. We need help. We need someone to intervene,” he fumes. This comes after the Kirstenhof police held a joint operation with the City of Cape Town’s Metro Police and Traffic Services and the provincial traffic department across the precinct on Friday 28 June (People’s Post, 2 July 2013). Kirstenhof police spokesperson Constable Sandy Wilson says 30 fines and the impounding of an illegal taxi totalled R13 500. However, VTA secretary Gcobani Nombewu insists their drivers received “three lots of fines of R11 000 each”. “We also had to pay R5 000 to get our taxi back, R2 000 to bail our driver out after his arrest for driving without a permit and another R2 000 fine when he was found guilty in court.” Wilson says other fines may have been given to the VTA in operations held in other precincts on that day. But disagreements regarding the money paid during and following the operation are not the biggest bone of contention between police and the VTA. Wilson says the fines were mostly given because the VTA are operating illegally in the precinct where only the Steenberg Taxi Association (STA) and Retreat Taxi Association (RTA) have permits to operate. RTA operates from either side of the Retreat Transport Interchange and STA operates from Steen-

berg train station. However, Gcobani says according to the minutes of a meeting held between them and the province on 7 July 2010 (before the group was officially registered as a taxi association), they were assured that they were allowed to operate on the routes between Vrygrond, Blue Route Mall, Tokai, Pollsmoor Prison and Wynberg and they have never received any documents or instruction to the contrary. “We will not stop,” he says about VTA operations in Kirstenhof. Robin Carlisle, provincial minister for transport and public works, says the VTA has been warned on several occasions to stop operating in the Kirstenhof precinct. “They do not have permission to operate there. It was never even discussed,” he says. “They have certain routes accounted to them and they must operate there.” He explains that once a certain routehas been registered to an association, it can never be given to a second association or taken away from the first and then given to another association. “These routes (in the Kirstenhof precinct) were given to the STA and RTA long before the VTA even existed and the VTA are operating there illegally.” Wilson says the Kirstenhof police will continue to conduct operations focusing on any illegal taxi activity in the area and adds that this includes associations with permits, such as the STA and RTA, which deviate from their allocated routes. This is not the first incident involving the VTA, RTA and STA. Two people died in an a taxi route dispute in 2009 and another two the year after. Several people have also been injured in an ongoing taxi war between the associations which flares up periodically.

International flavour to hockey fest Wynberg Boys’ High will have to see off the challenge of 17 other teams if they are to defend their Cape Town International Hockey Festival title. Wynberg won the tournament last year after defeating the New South Wales Bushrangers, the reigning champions at the time, 2-0 thanks to two second half goals. This year’s tournament will feature teams from across the country, as well as teams from other countries. The Bushrangers will return to the tournament again and will be aiming to reclaim their title at the expense of Wynberg. Winelands school Somerset College will be the side to beat in the girls’ competition, after their emphatic 7-0 win over DF Malan High in last year’s final.

Tournament director Chris Brothers says the fact that so many countries will be represented is a sign of the festival’s growing prestige. “It’s really exciting as we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of this event, which highlights some of the best junior talent on the international and local stage,” he says. “To have (teams from) five countries with us is an indication of the prestige and popularity that this festival has earned over the last 10 years.” This year the NSW Bushrangers have been joined by fellow Australian side Como Secondary School from Perth, as well as the Bancroft School and Pates Grammar from England and Kennemer Lyceum from Amsterdam, Holland. The tournament will also have a strong African contingent with Chisipite School from Harare, Zimbabwe and Windhoek

PEOPLE'S POST | RETREAT Tuesday, 16 July 2013

All-rounder heads for national stardom LIAM MOSES


young Cape Town sportsman has been rewarded for his hard work and determination with simultaneous call-ups to the South African under-18 hockey and under-19 cricket teams. Zubayr Hamza has quickly made a name for himself in junior sporting circles. And his rocket-like rise through the ranks reached new heights with the three biggest achievements of his young career coming in less than a week this month. The Rondebosch Boys’ High School pupil was first called up to the SA under-19 cricket squad, then lead the Western Province under-18 hockey team to glory in the Inter Provincial Tournament (IPT) on home soil and capped off an unforgettable week with selection to the national under-18 hockey side. Hamza says he felt “ecstatic and relieved” because the IPT victory and national call-ups are proof that his hours of hard work and sacrifice are starting to pay off. “My motivation makes me the sportsman I am because I have been gifted with talent. But there are several hours I put in each week before matches for both sports,” he says. “Whether it’s training, exercising by myself or taking runs; my dad and uncle always tell me that I have to put in the hours. It’s about working hard and doing what’s necessary. “What motivates me is a hunger to succeed. I have always tried to do my best in everything that I have pursued, including academics.”

The Lansdowne youngster comes from a sports-mad family and, at on stage, played eight different sporting codes simultaneously in primary school. Hamza took part in table tennis, rugby, soccer and swimming, but gradually the other codes fell by the wayside as cricket and hockey became his passion and focus. The 18-year-old loves both sports equally, for different and similar reasons, and says he hopes to continue pursuing both for now. Hamza was set to travel to Pretoria to take part in a training camp at the Cricket South Africa High Performance Centre as part of his call up, but was forced to decline the invitation to play in the IPT. With his schooling coming to an end this year, even higher honours on the horizon and the possibility of turning professional in the future, Hamza may have to make a more conclusive decision in the near future. “I don’t think I am better at one than I am at the other, but at the moment I am looking at cricket in the future. However, I would like to keep my options open,” he says. “I will go with whichever one I can take the furthest. The main goal is that I have opportunities and options after school. I was selected to the SA hockey side, so that will play a role in my future. I’m also taking cricket to the next level and seeing if I can make the ICC under-19 World Cup squad for next year.” And as for why he enjoys these two codes more than the other sports he has played, Hamza says hockey and cricket thrown him a gauntlet.

READY TO PLAY: The Seawinds Marines Sports Club are looking to grow and enter teams in different leagues. PHOTO: LIAM MOSES

Marching to sporting glory LIAM MOSES A recently-formed sports club has called on the Seawinds community to support its goals of developing sports talent and uplifting the area’s youth. Seawinds Marines Sports Club was formed in February last year and is still in the process of building membership numbers and forming teams to compete in the various competitions it plans to enter. Norman Abrahams, a Seawinds resident and teacher at Steenberg High School, says he founded the club to keep the area’s youth away from social ills. “I established the club to keep these young people off the streets, to teach them to become positive role models in our community, to keep them active and to help them,” he says. “Most of the club members are still at school, while some of them have dropped out. Sport is something that brings communities together and will keep our children out of jail. Sport helps to bring up positive role models. It’s long overdue for this community to be built up in terms of sports.” The club aims to give men and women of all ages the opportunity to play soccer, rugby, cricket and netball, but currently has just over 30 club members.

Marines have started rugby and cricket training, but are yet to join any leagues or play any games against other opposition. Abrahams says the club aims to join leagues as soon they have enough members to form teams. The club will play any sports its members show interest in. Abrahams, who also coaches the Steenberg High rugby teams, has grand plans for the fledgling club. “The community are welcome to join. Everybody is welcome,” he says. “I want this community to grow in terms of sport. My dream is that one day we will see professional cricketers, rugby players and Olympic stars come out of this club.” The Marines were fortunate enough to have cricket equipment worth over R40 000 donated to the club by the Department of Correctional Services, but the club does not have any playing kits or equipment for any of the other sporting codes it plans to offer. Abrahams appeals to the community to assist with any donations and to also offer their time to help grow the club. Seawinds Marines train at the Seawinds Sports Complex from 17:00 to 19:00 every Tuesday and Thursday. For more information call Abrahams on 078 379 3794. Organized by:

A chance to play for the People’s Team Santos FC will host trials for the club’s under-23 side at the sports field in Poplar Avenue, Thornton on Friday 19 July at 15:00.

Players need to take along their own boots, shin guards and training kit. Call Keith America on (021) 696 8193.

after the second goal and Noordhoek’s ill-advised and inaccurate route-one passing only invited the opposition onto them. The third goal came just three minutes after the second when Dimetre Fredericks was allowed to turn on the edge of the box and fire past a flat-footed Paulssen. Segers doubled his tally and killed any hopes of a Noordhoek comeback in the 57th minute when he lashed a shot from the edge of the box, through a crowd of indecisive defenders and beyond Paulssen’s reach. To add insult to injury, Noordhoek skipper Tristan Human was sent off after receiving his second yellow card in the 71st minute. Milano had another chance to score in the 80th minute when Fredericks was fouled in the box, but Duncan Adonis hit the post with his attempt at the resulting penalty kick.

Noordhoek out, Milano move on N

oordhoek FC crashed out of the CocaCola Cup, suffering a heavy defeat to Milano United in Rylands on Sunday. The Far South club were completely outplayed by the Grassy Park side and went down 4-0 in the round of 64 encounter. Noordhoek head coach Charles Jacobs blamed the unavailability of some of his first-choice players for the one-sided scoreline. “I am disappointed with both the performance and the result. I think we should have done better against such a young team, but they were also quicker and faster on the ball,” he says. “Our organisation was to blame. We had a problem with some of the boys arriving late, so it’s not exactly our first team. It’s a

younger team.” The older Noordhoek side were the first to settle in the game and striker Axole Tshetsha came inches from scoring in the seventh minute, when his first-time shot was parried to safety by Milano goalkeeper, Stanton Weir. But as the game progressed Milano found their rhythm and gradually took complete control. After holding out for most of the first half, Noordhoek went behind in the 40th minute when Milano’s Kyle Segers nodded home a pin-point cross at the far post. The Grassy Park side’s dominance continued unabated in the second half and Junaid Ismail doubled the lead in the 50th minute. Noorhoek keeper Ryan Paulssen cleared the ball directly to Ismail and the midfielder fired a low volley into the bottom right corner. Milano were riding a wave of confidence

The win sees Milano advance to the round of 32, meaning just four more victories could see the young side competing in the final of the Coca-Cola Cup. Milano will find out who they face in the next round on Sunday 4 August, when the draw takes place on Thursday or Friday.
