Santos return for pre-season
Santos Football Club have returned to pre-season training this week ahead of their 2015/2016 National First Division campaign. The Santos players enjoyed a much-needed break after the exploits of the previous season, that after a bright start, saw the People's Team end up in 13th spot. But there is a renewed vigour in the squad, despite the chilly June Cape Town weather, with the players and coaching staff both looking forward to what promises to be an another action packed season. Some highlights from the recently completed NFD slog included the selections of Fagrie Lakay, Suhayl Allie and Carl Lark into the South African national teams while a number of Santos Academy graduates made their first forays into the professional game. From Santos Football Club, we would like to wish all of the best to our players, staff and supporters. Santos Jou Lekker Ding!

Santos and DAFF mark World Oceans Day
Santos and the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries marked World Oceans Day alongside the Sarah Baartman - a South African environmental protection vessel - at Cape Town Harbour on Monday. World Oceans Day is the official United Nation's designated international day of celebrating the oceans - and on a glorious morning in the Mother City, a number of Portfolio Committee Members, the Director-General of DAFF; members of the media as well as a group of enthusiastic interns and the Santos DAFF Ambassadors, all listened intently as Minister Senzeni Zokwana delivered a rousing speech. The Honourable Mr Zokwana, who thanked Santos Football Club for partnering with his department for Youth Month, appealed to the youth to play their part in helping to protect the country's oceans and to safeguard their future, before challenging his own staff to increase their efforts in the fight towards food security. He said: "With growing dependence on natural resources, we have to ask ourselves a question: How can we forge an economically viable, environmentally sound and socially responsible vision for the use of the ocean's natural resources without compromising those of future generations?" He added: "One of the biggest challenges that we face in South Africa today is striking a balance between meeting the food security needs of our people while at same time ensuring that the resources they depend on are managed sustainably. "In partnership with Santos, the People's Team, which has now become a food security ambassador, we are encouraging young people to join our efforts to kick off for food security and take up careers in the sector. "We know and have seen how soccer can bring people together and we believe through such a sport, young people can be mobilised to become active participants in the sector and this challenge to address food insecurity." Dr. Kim Prochazka, the Director of Resources Research then presented the report for the status of the South African Marine Fishery Resources which outlined in stark detail the work needed to be done to maintain, improve and recover fish stocks as Santos Chairman Mr Goolam Allie spoke about the importance of nutrition for South Africa's youth. The DAFF Ambassadors, who were also in attendance, namely Tyren Arendse, Suhayl Allie, Sachin Dawood, Sizwe Nyambi and Fagrie Lakay, will. meanwhile, link up with the Minister in Mthatha next week as the Department continues to raise awareness about the importance of food security across the country.

The Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Senzeni Zokwana kicked off Youth Month at Santos Football Club on Monday afternoon. Following a media briefing where it was announced that Santos players Tyren Arendse, Carl Lark, Fagrie Lakay, Suhayl Allie, Sachin Dawood and Telford Ncusana will be Ambassadors for the department during their month-long planned activities, the Ministers spoke to the Academy youngsters about the importance of food nutrition and their potential role in the future of agriculture, forestry and fisheries in South Africa. The Minister then gave some sage advice to the Academy boys on how to care for a productive garden, with the department clearing some space at the club's Lansdowne grounds for a diverse vegetable patch, this before showing off his skills to the Under 10s and Under 8s before obliging the excited young stars with a photo session. In his speech, Minister Zokwana said: "The youth of today must be at the forefront of societal conversations in dealing with socio-economic challenges. Government is convinced that young people will play a key role in transforming society in the third decade of freedom. "The youth are at the heart of the National Development Plan, our collective blueprint for a society in which all South Africans will flourish. "The inherent potential in young people can be the catalyst for social change and economic emancipation. With the country’s youth unemployment figure increasing at this alarming rate, the South African government has committed to invest in its youth at the centre of the socio-economic transformation."

Charles making all the right moves
Santos are delighted to congratulate Junaid Charles for his achievements in being selected for the Under 21 Regional team. The 17-year-old attacking midfielder, who has come up through the ranks at the Santos academy, beat off a host of competition to be chosen for the 18-man squad. Only players who played the recently completed SAB League season were eligible for selection. The players will now take part in a regional competition in Beaufort West where the Provincial squad will be scouted. Charles, who recently completed his first season in the SAB League, is an talented young central midfielder who can hurt opposition defences from out wide as well. And speaking to thepeoplesteam.co.za after training, the excited young man said: "The trials were tough but I enjoyed it. The coaches just told us just to express ourselves. "I made it through the Friday cut off and then Saturday and eventually I made it down to the 18 man squad. "I am happy because it shows for me that I am progressing. It is what I am working towards; to one day become a professional soccer player." He added: "I must just keep on working hard." By Trevor Kramer
