Registration for Kay Motsepe Cup closes

Clapham players ready for the Kay Motsepe Cup.

Registration for the Sanlam Kay Motsepe Schools Cup has closed and schools that have registered will now start competing in their various clusters in different parts of the country.

Last year’s participants, Clapham High School has registered again this year and it has players who are plying their trades in the Mamelodi Sundowns Youth Academy.

Seven of last year’s players that are still at the school will take part again together with five new recruits.

Team manager, Ngwato Petje said not all their players are associated with Mamelodi Sundowns.

He said one of his players, Keamogetswe Ledwaba comes from the opposition school in Benny’s Sport Academy and plays for Edu Sport FC in the SAB League.

According to Petjie, he is star quality and is definitely someone to look out for during the competition.

Clapham won the competition once in 2013 and were knocked out at the provincial finals last year.

The team will once again be coached by former Sundowns player, Mike Manzini.

Petjie said preparations are going well and they have played five friendly games already and want the team to be familiar with each other and for them to see if there are any adjustments that they need to improve upon.

As 2013 champions of the Kay Motsepe Cup, Clapham won R1 million in funding for the school and is in the process using the funds to build two new classrooms and a life skills centre.
