All the teams in each Local Football Association (LFA) had to play in qualification games to get a winner from each LFA. PEFA and Northern Areas nominated their winners and we were chosen by PEFA to represent them.
Our first game was a preliminary game against Tomorrow Stars, who are a Castle League team from Motherwell, which was played in rainy weather. We beat them 7-4 with goals scored by Damian Christian (3), Farouk Abrahams (2), Six Pona and Quwan Haywood.
In the quarter-final we played Ghetto Stars from Walmer and we beat them 4-1 with Kurt Petersen scoring all 4 goals. Farouk Abrahams (Punky) was not available for this game as he got married that evening.
The semi-final was against Shining Stars, also a Castle League team, in gale force winds. We beat them 2-0 with both goals scored by Farouk Abrahams (Punky).
In the final we played Bushbucks and beat them 2-1 with goals by Farouk Abrahams (Punky) and the winner in the dying minutes by Damian Christian.
Farouk Abrahams (Punky) was awarded joint Top Goal Scorer and Siyatemba Mashiya (Xola) was awarded Player of the Tournament. A rather satisfying tournament as we won R30 000 for the club.
