GAFFER Under 13s Rocking East-Africa!

After weeks of preparations, GAFFER Youngstars crossed the Kenyan boarder to Moshi, Tanzania for a week-long East African cup tournament!

The well prepared boys got ready early morning for the tournament and reached moshi in the evening. That evening, boys lined up for the opening ceremony where our boys were really happy to meet over three thousand children from Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi and Zambia. It was such a great experience and boys were very happy.

Early morning, it was the duty of the boys to show what they can do in the tournament. GAFFER young stars were grouped with Moshi local, Chrisc Tanzania and Victoria academy. Following a lot of rain that poured early that morning, the ground was slippery and the boys were forced to play without shoes.

The first match was 2-1!! First win for GAFFER young stars courtesy of goals from 11 year old Wango Mwakizori at the second half. GAFFER was already leading the group after the other two teams drew their match.

The second match was a draw courtesy of Delvan Mwaghogho’s goal in the second half. We had already booked a place in the quarter finals even after losing the third match. Our quarter finals went 1-0 after a goal from Eldoret chrisc midfielder.

GAFFER young stars were out of the tournament but it was such a great experience. Boys were beaten by the champions as chrisc eldoret emerged the winners for this tournament in the junior category. GAFFER young stars are looking forward to going back next year with great hopes of winning and come back with the prestigious trophy.
Well done to everyone who made this trip successful.
