Can anyone stop the Mighty Reds?

first_imgThere is also the possibility that the tournament might make an international bid to see other African regions brought into the fold, which could see it grow exponentially. For now though, each team has their eye on bringing home the silverware this weekend as the first step on that journey. KARL BERGEMANNThe air was thick with anticipation as some of Cape Town’s finest under-17 footballing talents sat waiting to hear who they would be facing off against in the group stages of this year’s Engen under-17 Knockout Challenge, to be held at Vasco Da Gama, in Parow, this weekend.For defending champions, Ajax Cape Town, and hosts, Vasco Da Gama, it was a case of sitting back and watching the selection unfold, their positions in the pool stages determined before the draw, held at the River Club, last week. Sitting in Pool B and A, respectively, Ajax and Vasco will be hoping to make the most of their pool games to secure a spot in the knockout stages.It won’t, however, be as easy for the defending champs as they may have anticipated, being drawn in what turned out, arguably, to be the group of death, with top contenders Hellenic FC, Fish Hoek AFC and Grassy Park United being drawn alongside the Urban Warriors. Hellenic and Fish Hoek have been particularly impressive leading up to the tournament and will be throwing their names in the hat for one of the teams that could cause some trouble for the champions.As it stands, the group stages will look as follows. In Pool A, hosts Vasco Da Gama will face off against Jordan Callies, Atlantic Nacional and Milano United. Pool B features Ajax, Hellenic, Fish Hoek and Grassy Park United. Pool C sees Greenwood Athletic, Maties, Ikapa Sporting and Greenlovers FC vying for honours and Pool D includes Southampton FC, YSD Macassar, Avendale Athletico and Old Mutual.The competition runs from Friday July 15 and will culminate in the finals on Sunday July 17. Tournament director Phillip Ribeiro hopes the local organising committee will have ironed out any kinks they experienced last year when they host these young talents this weekend.“Vasco Da Gama is very happy and excited to be hosting the tournament for a second year. Tournaments such as these are key to improving the standard of junior football across the board ,and we feel that we have learnt a lot from last year’s event and hope that clubs will enjoy themselves this weekend. “We wish the teams well and encourage the players to take this opportunity to get out there and be seen by scouts, and hopefully this will be the start of many professional careers,” he said.As a 2016 Engen Knockout Challenge ambassador, former Bafana Bafana defender, Nasief Morris, who started his career with Cape-based side Santos FC and now plies his trade at Milano United, was on hand to further the case of players getting a shot at the so-called big time.“It’s really at this stage where players step into the professional set-ups and where they are able to set their standards and the goals they hope to achieve for themselves. “If I look at my own situation, I was playing professional football from the age of 16, when Santos were in the PSL.“I always tell the young kids that dreams do come true. I remember telling my mom that I was going to make a lot of money and give her everything her heart desires. I believe setting these goals for yourself is an important part of achieving a sense of satisfaction and pride. “Having done these things myself, I feel it is important to give back to the younger generation of footballers coming through the ranks, and I believe they can achieve even more than what I have done if they set their minds to it,” said Morris.With over 200 teams and more than 4 000 players competing in the Knockout Challenge regional tournaments, there is no doubt that future stars will emerge from these teams. last_img read more

London Bridge rebuild contracts awarded

first_imgUK: Network Rail announced the award of two major contracts for the rebuilding of London Bridge station on November 1. The project forms the second phase of the Thameslink Programme to upgrade the north-south commuter route through central London.Costain has been awarded a £400m contract for detailed design and delivery of the station redevelopment, while Balfour Beatty Rail has a £50m contract for track remodelling. Invensys Rail was awarded a framework contract for the associated signalling renewals in July. The station redevelopment proposals are still subject to planning approval, but aim to provide a new street-level concourse to allow the station to handle around 66% more passengers than today. Work is scheduled to get underway in 2013 for completion in 2018. ‘The way London Bridge evolved since the mid-1800s left us with a station and a track layout which makes it increasingly difficult to provide the capacity and reliability passengers expect today’, said Simon Kirby, Managing Director of Investment Projects at Network Rail. ‘The Thameslink Programme allows the tracks, platforms and station layout at London Bridge to be completely redesigned, boosting the number of trains that can run, unblocking the bottleneck and providing a modern and dynamic station which will make a real improvement for passengers.’last_img read more
