The recently registered Oranjemund Football Academy aims to scout young players in preparation for the upcoming SKW and Ramblers Tournaments slated for the end of July. 

Speaking to NBC Sport at the Oranjemund Sports Grounds, the founder of the football academy, Metumo Imene says that the academy which is only in its first year of existence has already attracted nearly ninety registered players between the ages of 8 and 18 years. 

"Sports is one of the most powerful tools in engaging and developing the youth through discipline we also coach and mentor the boys and like I said we have our team from under 9 up to under 19 we are targeting the premier league one day we will have a registered team that will challenge to play in the premier league and hopefully from that one of our players will be scouted and also represent the Brave Warriors at the African Nations Cup and any other games representing the land of the brave" he said.   

The under seventeen players played a friendly match against second division outfit, Galacticos in preparation for the SKW and Ramblers Tournaments. The youngsters won that match by four goals to two.

" Here are scouts coming from SKW so if we can get some of our boys to be seen at the SKW tournament to get sponsorship.It will just be something big for some of the boys coming out of the Karas Region and to be seen at those tournaments" he added.
