Making 'headway' in the lives of Port Elizabeth's underprivileged youth

Headway Youth Development in partnership with Sasuka Concrete celebrated heritage day filled with fun and good spirits when they hosted a 5-a-side soccer shield at Glenville Celtic Sports Facility, in Gelvandale, Port Elizabeth.

The aim of the tournament was to bring the youth together through community sport and to give kids, especially from underprivileged areas the opportunity to participate and enjoy sport. 

The participating schools were Clarendon Park Primary School, Gelvandale Primary School, Astra Primary School, Fontuin Primary School and Fernwood Park Primary School.

Youth encouraged to participate in sports

CEO of Sasuka Concrete, Craig Diedericks, gave an important message to the youngsters encouraging them to keep participating in sport and to stay dedicated towards their educational journey. 

One of Headway Youth Developments founding members, Josh Dolley, said that they hope to host a tournament of this nature annually as it is good way to get the kids active and in a positive environment. 

Clarendon and Astra Primary came pretty close coming in at third and second place, however, the  overall winner of the Headway Soccer Shield 2018 was none other than Fontuin Primary School.
