The annual u/19 Metropolitan Premier Cup took place this weekend and JCBA was there covering it.
Lets be honest the quality of the pitches (especially the A- Field) was to be frank atrocious, thankfully the quality of our youngsters soccer to a certain extent over shadowed that.
Thirty two teams 8 groups and some of South Africa's brightest young talent took part in this 6 day tournament (in its 26th year I might add). All fighting it out for the R35 000 purse but more importantly for the 24 winners medals on offer for the Champions.
The Opening Ceremony boasted A Rapper, A Beat Boxer, a Fire breathing act (including a fire Hoola Hoop Girl), a group of dances and a fireworks display before a 0-0 draw between Ajax Cape Town vs ASD Cape Town. Interestingly these two met again in the semi-finals as well as Old Mutual Academy played against Sundowns FC.
The eventual winners was Ajax Cape Town against Sundowns FC by 1-0 and in turn retaining the title the won last year.
