Lidz in a higher league

For the first time in history female soccer players from the Overberg stand a chance to qualify for the national team Banyana Banyana.

This was made possible after Safa Overberg bought the title of Sasol League team from Lidz United, a team based in Plettenberg Bay.

Martiens Konstabel, co-owner of the team, says: “We believe this will inspire female soccer players to work harder and give their best as they now stand a chance to qualify for Banyana Banyana. It will also help to create awareness around women’s soccer in the Overberg.”

Teams from the Overberg were invited to take part in the try-outs held in Gansbaai two weeks ago. Altogether 24 members between the ages of 14 and 29 were selected.

“Two members of the Police Local Football Association also form part of the team,” explained Safa Overberg president Tankiso Modipe who is also co-owner of Lidz United.

Thomas Lebitsa of Abagold FC has been selected as head coach of Lidz United with Solwethu “Soso” Gonya of Lucky Girls FC as assistant coach.

The team members are: Sindiswa Nazo, Qamani Manzi, Purcilla Willemse, Keitumetse Mokoqama, Andiswe Momoza, Zenande Msebe, Yonela Kibido, Indiphile Ntsana, Siphenathi Ngevayo, Vanessa Mapini, Sindiswa Kose, Kuhle Velani, Mihle Mkhwekese, Emmihle Ntsomi, Leletu Tasana, Nande Ndlazi, Zizipho Matiwane, Zintle Mshede, Siziphiwe Bapa and Sisonke Staki. The members of the police who have been selected to the team are Nomaba Mlenze and Welsha Smith. The team captain will be selected soon.

Konstabel says sponsors are vital to the team’s existence. “Sponsorships will assist us with important expenses such as travelling costs.”

Business who wish to sponsor the team can contact Konstabel at 082 724 7305 or Modipe on 073 174 0612.• Lidz United will play their first Sasol League match on Saturday 6 July in Hawston. They will face Dangerous Heroes from Cape Town. The match will kick off at 15:00.
