Dun­lop Ex­press do­nates soc­cer kit

Talk of the Town - - Sport - TK MTIKI

Ne­mato foot­ball club Paubs were thrilled to re­ceive new three-piece soc­cer kits from Dun­lop Ex­press Port Al­fred last week.

Co-own­ers Fran­cois and An­drea Lieben­berg also gave the team a new ball.

De­spite be­ing new in town and hav­ing only re­cently met em­ployee San­diso Tyam, the Lieben­bergs were im­pressed by Tyam’s ex­cel­lent ser­vice and be­came mo­ti­vated to do some­thing for the com­mu­nity be­yond the work­ing en­vi­ron­ment.

It was Tyam who asked if the com­pany would spon­sor kit for his soc­cer team.

“He has been work­ing for us since we ar­rived here in Jan­uary. This is a small town and we get sup­port from every­one and we ap­pre­ci­ate that,” Fran­cois said.

Be­fore mov­ing to Port Al­fred, the Lieben­bergs were based in Makhanda (formerly Grahamstown).

Fran­cois was of the view that buy­ing kit for a foot­ball club ben­e­fited the com­mu­nity at large. “This is for the com­mu­nity and this is a small town, not a city, so we are try­ing to help wher­ever we can,” he said.

Paubs coach Luthando Matomela ex­tended grat­i­tude to the Lieben­bergs on be­half of the team.

“This means a lot to us as we all know that the mar­ket is not do­ing well,” he said.

Paubs play in the Nd­lambe Lo­cal Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion League and the kit comes at the right time when the lo­cal league is about to start.
