All smiles at the soccer clinic

The players and coaching staff met local school kids at a soccer coaching clinic in Johannesburg on Friday.

The players and coaching staff met local school children at a soccer coaching clinic in Johannesburg on Friday.

After training at Ellis Park in the morning, the squad travelled to the St David's Marist School in Sandton, Johannesburg.

They were greeted by hundreds of young footballers at the event organised by our tour sponsors Investec.

The youngsters were from the Soweto Schools Soccer League that Investec initiated back in 2008.

Twenty teams play in the league and most of the schools currently participate in Promaths, Investec's flagship education project. Each year, Investec host a final day in Soweto where the top four teams battle it out for the first prize.

The kids showed no little skill as our players and coaches switched around various coaching stations.

At the end of the event, all the youngsters received a certificate, a medal and every group posed for photographs with our squad.
