DIKWENA SUPPORTS FUTURE STARS
Platinum Stars Football Club has partnered with Royal Bafokeng Sports (RBS) and Royal Bafokeng Holdings (RBH) in order to unearth talent.

Dikwena, RBS and RBH will host a mini football festival at Bonwakgogo Primary School in Robega Village, where U13 players from eight primary schools will battle it out in the TOP8 of Metshameko Sports Programme on Saturday, October 22 from 9am to 5pm.

Through Platinum Stars Soccer Schools, the club has channeled resources to provide proper development to a number of schools in a number of Bafokeng regions. Stars Academy Manager Kagiso Marumo says the weekend’s event is part of the club’s commitment to brewing talent in North West communities.

“A few years ago, we launched Platinum Stars Soccer Schools with the aim of not only identifying talent but also empowering local coaches with necessary tools needed for development of a modern day player. We have managed to recruit talent to the club. On Saturday we will be looking at talent that we can incorporate into our academy for next year. Our coaches will be scouting. We might have one or two players we can bring into our academy. It’s part of our recruitment drive as well to ensure that we get players from these communities.”

Marumo revealed that Dikwena will be on the lookout for talented youngsters, who could form part of the club’s academy structures in the future. Marumo says Dikwena’s involvement is part of the club’s role in uplifting the community.

“It’s part of our strategic goals to give back to the community hence we have partnered with RBS and RBH that we want to plough back into our community. Development is vital hence we are looking into schools. It’s easier to get talent from schools. Part of the purpose is to unearth talent and develop it not only for Platinum Stars but for the country at large,” said Marumo.

For years now RBS has committed itself to development of sports in the Northwest Province. Head of Royal Bafokeng Sports Eugene Thipe says there’s massive excitement concerning the upcoming Saturday’s event, which will also include Netball.

“We want to reach into the community. We want to make sure that we touch each and every child as much as we touch the parents. This is a culmination of a league that has been running throughout all the primary schools. It runs throughout the year. In the process we select the cream of the crop. We select players that are going to be playing as curtain raisers against Stars U13s,” said Thipe.

Thipe revealed that Netball will also be part of the activities that will take place on the day.

“Back in the day, soccer and netball were on par in school tournaments. We don’t want to detach Netball from soccer. RBS also does netball so there will be netball also. It’s like a mini Sports Festival. The enthusiasm that is out there from RBS staff, Platinum Stars going to the finals is really exciting. Everyone is looking forward to this. It’s quite exciting. We have done a lot of things but this is a new programme that is reaching out to the kids,” said Thipe.

On the day, there will be entertainment on and off the pitch. Even Platinum Stars coaches will take to the pitch against their counterparts from RBH and RBS in one of the curtain raisers.
