BOKAMOSO Secondary School have promised to lift the inaugural J&W Under-14 schools soccer tournament title when they face Lethulwazi Comprehensive School at Mehlareng Stadium in Tembisa on Saturday.

The tournament is hosted jointly by Gauteng education districts, Ekurhuleni South and Ekurhuleni North.

Both districts aim to make sure there is mass participation in school sports and also give the students the opportunity to develop their soccer skills.

The tournament is sponsored by the German cleaning system specialists J&W, to the tune of R150000.

Bokamoso coach Oupa Mahlalela said his boys are looking forward to an exciting and challenging encounter against the polished Lethulwazi.

"We have done our homework quite well as far as preparations are concerned. On Monday we watched the video of our opponents and have identified their strongest and weak points," said Mahlalela after their training session yesterday.

He has urged the community of Tembisa and surrounding areas to come in large numbers to watch both teams at their best.

Spokesperson for Lethulwazi Khotso Moloi, said the half-yearly exams had slightly disturbed their preparations.

"However, we will do our utmost to upset Bokamoso in their own kraal, come Saturday," Moloi said.

Bokamoso's firing squad will be marshalled by the deadly and consistent Robbie Maake. The 14-year-old is the son of Saddam Maake, Kaizer Chiefs' number one fan.

In the losers' final, Ephes Mamkele from Wattville and Thuto Lesedi from Vosloorus will battle it out in a 10am kickoff.

The winners will pocket R15000, gold medals and a trophy while the runners-up will get R10000 and silver medals.

Third- and fourth-placed teams will get R5000 and R2500 respectively.
