HE is the diamond of Westbury, the best thing that's ever happened to this township once ravaged by gangsterism.
These words were spoken by Colan Vorster when I arrived at Westbury grounds to interview him about Steven "Schillo" Pienaar.
Popularly known as "Smitty", Vorster grew up with Pienaar at a local block of flats. They also both played for amateur sides Arsenal and Argentinos.
"We grew up together. He was naughty but very passionate about soccer," he said.
"From childhood, Schillo always had big dreams about the game. It's no wonder he was selected to study at the Transnet Football School of Excellence. He used to tell us that one day he would play for one of the big clubs in the world. I knew he was well on track when he joined Ajax Cape Town.
"He is a role model who has also put our township on the international map. We watch all his games on television. We are very proud of his achievements.
"I still can't believe he will be playing in the FA Cup final on Saturday. Westbury and the whole of South Africa will never be the same again, thanks to Schillo."
Schillo always organises a soccer tournament whenever he is back in the country.
