WINDHOEK, 15 FEB (NAMPA) – The Swakopmund Women's Soccer League (SWSL) will resume on Saturday after a weekend off to host trials for the Under-20 women’s regional team.
League officials and regional sports officers in the Erongo Region last weekend held trials to select a team that will compete against the national women’s football team, ‘Brave Gladiators’, at the 2017 Namibian Newspaper Cup.
The annual youth football cup will be held in Swakopmund in the Erongo Region over the Easter weekend.
The second leg of the SWSL kicked off at the end of January after a two-month break, with Dragon City continuing their dominance.
The league's chairperson, Wilson Nguvauva told Nampa on Wednesday he was happy with the players’ current fitness level and expect improved football over the weekend.
Nguvauva said most players are now 60 to 70 per cent fit.
“We saw good skills being displayed by some of these players during the Under-20 regional team selection,” he said.
Nguvauva called on community members in Swakopmund to go to the football fields over the weekend and support the teams.
The amateur women's football league was established in June 2015, with eight football teams all based in Swakopmund.
Kavetu Football Club (KFC) from Arandis joined the league with two teams (KFC A and KFC B).
Dragon City, Namib Daughters, Dream Team, Swakopmund Sport Development Club (SSDC), African Queens and Chelsea are all based in Swakopmund.
Namib Daughters were crowned champions in the league's maiden season.
