Our u19 Tigers were fortunate to be among the 20 teams invited to the Nedbank Grey College Tournament in Bloemfontein during September this year. One of the organizers, Karlien, announced on arrival in Bloemfontein that the trip to Barcelona will be to Blains and that it forms part of the Corpa Jordi youth tournament where they are expecting more than 150 international youth teams. This all is scheduled to happen over Easter from 10 – 18 April 2017.
On the second last day of the tournament they announced the u19 squad to go on tour and Keyzer had made the team. The next day we found out that our captain Stiga was also included in the u19 team! You can imagine the celebrations that followed! Travel & Sport decided to also select a squad of sixteen players.
They then surprised us with another 3 players from SAG that had been selected: Luzuko, Sky and Warra. To top it all off Keyzer received the all expenses paid package to the value of R25 000. One of the organizers said that they were praying that one of our players would get the free ticket.
