The 2018 Discovery Walter Sisulu Soccer Challenge group stages are heating up as the all teams have their eyes set on the coveted trophy.
Strokes F.C came out with guns blazing as they eased passed Killarney Motswako F.C in a convincing 2- 0 victory. Miscommunication amongst the Motswako players contributed to their loss as the Meadowlands based, Strokes FC capitalized on their opponents weaknesses.
Head Coach of Strokes, Nathian Davies has been coaching in the Discovery Walter Sisulu Soccer Challenge for 8 years and has hailed the tournament as a great stepping stone towards a professional career in football. “This tournament has been a great platform for my player, Ronald Wee who currently captains the Highlands Park Reserve side. He has been an integral part of the team for the past 3 seasons and I believe that he truly has the discipline to make it into the first team.” said Davies.
Ronald Wee currently captains Stroke FC and was discovered by a Highlands Park talent scout during the Discovery Walter Soccer Challenge 3 years ago : “My experience at Highlands Park F.C has been absolutely amazing and each day at training has been a great stepping stone in my journey towards a professional career. I hope that my teammates at Stroke FC will have the same opportunity. Furthermore, we are aiming to win the tournament in honor of our late teammate “Llewelyn “Walla” Willis. He was a great asset to the team and we want to celebrate his life by winning this year.” concluded the young midfielder.
Wee follows in the steps of professional players such as Sifiso Myeni, Lyle Foster, and Sibusiso Vilakazi who all used the platform provided by Discovery to sharpen their talent for the big stage.
