Moroka Swallows defender James Mayinga believes that his inaugural school tournament will offer budding youngsters from his birth place, Bushbuckridge in Mpumalanga, a chance to be scouted and play in the Absa Premiership.

The James Mayinga Cup will be officially launched tomorrow with a gala dinner at Orhovelani Hall.

Sixteen schools from the 11 regions under the Bushbuckridge municipality will compete in the tournament.

Earlier in the day a PSL invitation XI will play against a Bushbuckridge municipality XI at the local stadium at 3pm.

"Bushbuckridge municipality is big and it's supposed to be represented by a pool of players in higher divisions. It saddens me to learn that it's only me, Michael Manzini [Mamelodi Sundowns] and Katlego Mashego [SuperSport United] who ply their trade in the PSL," said Mayinga. - Richard Nkosi
