Clifton - KZN High School Soccer

A dream comes true for KZN High Schools’ Soccer


After a number of years of building high school soccer throughout KZN, a sport only introduced in recent years into schools where rugby, cricket and hockey have been the major sports, three teams toured to Gauteng at the start of the holidays and proved just how strong schools’ soccer in our Province is becoming.


Representative teams were recently selected in the U15, U17 and U19 age groups from the KZN High Schools Invitation League, which includes all the traditionally competitive rugby/cricket/hockey playing schools from all over the province.  Fixtures for the tour included games against Pretoria University(Tuks FC), Glenwegians FC, Florida Albions FC and Moroka Swallows FC. The tour included a visit for the boys and coaches to the High Performance Centre at Tuks and also being guests for the match between Jomo Cosmos and Pretoria University(Tuks FC), playing in the Mvela Golden League.


The U15 KZN team made four exceptional appearances, winning all but one of their games convincingly, scoring 13 goals in total and conceding only 1.  Their drawn game at 0-0 was against a Florida Albions combined team of U15 and U17 players.  The highlight of the tour was their last match which saw them beat a very strong Moroka Swallows team 4-0.


The U17 team had three excellent wins, with some outstanding play and 11 brilliant goals being scored.  Their final game of the tour, despite dominating play for long periods, ended in a 1-0 loss to Swallows.


The U19 team drew their first game against Tuks, but continued the rest of the tour with strong, skilful play and determined wins, including a 1-0 victory over Moroka Swallows.


With sponsorship from Sports King and Masonite, the boys in black and white made KZN proud and we look forward to future growth and development in high schools’ soccer in the years to come.
