Eersterus, Pretoria amateur soccer outfit Ocean Basket All Stars have lined up warm-up matches against Bidvest Wits and Mpumalanga Black Aces.

Smiley Moosa, All Stars' spokesman, said: "We are delighted clubs in the big leagues are giving an opportunity to our players to compete against their role models.

"We have been playing against clubs in the SAB Regional and Vodacom leagues, the aim is to give exposure to the youngsters. Youngsters are taught the basics of soccer and life skills because we don't want to read heart-breaking stories about them when they turn professional. We also want players from around Tshwane to join us." - Sowetan
