Andrew Murch Under 16 Finals!

The cream of GAFFER’s Under 16 football teams went head to head this weekend to decide the 2011 Champions! After weeks of tough competition there could only be one winner!

The day began with the third place play off where Itinyi met Rukanga and played out a thrilling game that was settled with a pair of stunning goals scored by Rukanga’s Mterengo in the last five minutes! It was then time for the main event to be played in front of hundreds of spectators. The small villages of Jora and Kale don’t usually get a look in at this level. However the dedication and hours of training have come good for the young players of these two up and coming teams. Players as young as 12 years old battled it out in an exciting and well played game that was still goalless at half time. In the second half Jora started to dominate and mid-fielder Jeremiah Joshua ruled the centre of the park before drilling home the winner just before time! Jora were crowned the 2011 Andrew Murch Under 16 champions! Well done lads!

As well as the football action, GAFFER Health once again teamed up with St Josephs of Voi to set up a Voluntary Counseling and Testing facility that would allow the assembled crowd to know their status should they wish to. In all 153 people had professional counseling and were tested for HIV. Thanks to St Josephs for the support once again!
