The Under 13s had a remarkable unbeaten season with victory over Mamelodi Sundowns to complete the league and cup double.

And the Under 17s won against the Transnet School of Excellence after a nail-biting penalty shootout to lift the trophy.

The Under 19s joined in, by adding “the third piece of silverware following their triumph over North West University to put the icing on the cake for the Academy, whose hard work and commitment have been handsomely rewarded, ” Chiefs noted.

AMAKHOSI added, “The team had won through to their respective finals the previous day at the same venue, where Chiefs Under 13s and Under 17s comfortably despatched their Joburg City counterparts before the Under 19s edged past TS Galaxy on penalties to progress to the final.”

The Club remarked, “Congratulations to the Youth Academy administration, management, technical staff and players for your outstanding accomplishment. You are providing a fertile breeding ground for our young talent to develop into Amakhosi stars of the future.”

Meanwhile, Jessica Motaung, Kaizer Chiefs Marketing and Commercial Director was elected as the First Deputy Chairperson of the African Clubs Association at the ACA’s official launch in the Egyptian capital, Cairo on Thursday last week.
