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

Penalty pain in Parow for People's Team
Santos ended the 2014/15 National First Division season with a narrow 1-0 defeat to rivals Vasco Da Gama at Parow Park on Sunday afternoon. Mbulelo Wambi scored the only goal of the match from the penalty spot, in first half stoppage time, after Sachin Dawood was adjudged to have upended Thabani Mthembu inside the box. The People's Team had started the match brightly with Shaun Sopio's set-pieces causing problems for the Vasco defence in the opening exchanges. Samuel Julies had the home side's first real chance of the tie as he warmed Keenon Blignaut's palms with a well-hit drive. Matthew Rowell then did well to head clear a good Fagrie Lakay cross before Suhayl Allie came close with a headed chance from Fagan Muller's deep free-kick, before the lively Devon Saal powered a volley just over the target. Muller inadvertently headed over from close range as Santos looked to take a first-half lead into the break - but it was the hosts who were to hold that advantage as Wambi sent Blignaut the wrong way, in the 46th minute, as he smashed his spot-kick into the top left hand corner of the net. An action-packed second half ensued as Santos went in search of goals - much to the chagrin of Steven Hoffman in the Vasco goal who received treatment no less then three times after putting his body on the line to help secure all three points for his side. Allie came close from an excellent Tshepo Mabua centre from the left before Hoffman kept out good efforts from second-half substitutes Gregory roelf and Faizel Johnson. And while Lakay and Johnson both came close with well-struck shots, there was no way of breaking through a team with the joint best defensive record in the league.

Lark called up to Bafana
Santos are delighted to announce that Carl Lark has been called up to the Bafana Bafana training squad ahead of the 2015 COSAFA Cup Finals. The 21-year-old, who can play as a striker or across the midfield, has been one of the People's Team's shining lights this season, largely dictating play from the middle of the field while also weighing in with a number of crucial goals during the club's 2014/15 National First Division season. The young attacker, who spent time on loan with Ajax Cape Town last season, has told thepeoplesteam.co.za of his excitement at being called up to the 25-man squad which will be cut down to 20 players by Head Coach Shakes Mashaba upon the completion of the camp that starts on Sunday the 10th of May. The tournament proper will, meanwhile, take place in South Africa from 17 May to 31 May 2015. Lark said: "For me personally it is a great honour, especially taking into consideration where I have come from, growing up and having to fight and work really hard to get to where I am now. "I just want to thank the man above for putting the steps in place for me to follow. And I want to thank all the people that have been there for me, and helped me and guided me and I hope I am going to make them proud." He added: "I am happy because I felt I had a good season so it proves you can be rewarded for all your hard work. "But at the end of the day it is the coach's decision who makes the team and I will continue to work hard to try and make the final squad."

Santos and Milano in derby stalemate
Santos and rivals Milano played out a 0-0 draw in their penultimate National First Division match at Athlone Stadium on Sunday afternoon. In the absence of club captain Tyren Arendse, it was Suhayl Allie that led the team on the day, and the striker so nearly opened the scoring when his early free-kick beat Milano goalkeeper Wensten Van Der Linde but the ball dropped on to the roof of the net. Allie then headed wide of the target from an excellent Shaun Sopio free-kick from the right hand side before Devon Saal forced Van Der Linde into a good save from another incisive Sopio ball into the box. Nasief Morris tried his luck from a free-kick from 25 yards that flew just over the target while Moegamat Stellenboom looked to have beaten Santos stopper Keenon Blignaut with a chipped effort but the young keeper was able to claw the ball to safety. Tshepo Mabua saw his long-range effort fly past the poles Brandon Theron twisted and turned inside the box before slipping at the vital moment as he looked to shoot. The most notable moments of the second half saw Blignaut deny Theron from close range as he latched on to a quick free-kick while Milano substitute Brent Adonis rattled the crossbar shortly after his introduction. The addition of Fagrie Lakay and Telford Ncusana to the Santos ranks added some movement up front with both Carl Lark and Allie the beneficiaries as they latched onto some superb balls into the box, although neither were able to direct their efforts on target. The result sees Santos drop to 13th in the standings on 36 points with Milano in sixth place with 42 points.

BIG MATCH PREVIEW: Santos v Milano
Santos will look to put one over rivals Milano United AFC when the two sides meet in a National First Division match at Athlone Stadium on Sunday afternoon, kick-off 3pm. Both sides are out of the race for promotion with the People's Team heading into the match in 12 place with 35 points from their 28 games played while Eezy My Kinnes are currently in sixth place with 41 points. But the match is expected to be no less lively than the clash that took place earlier in the season, in December, that Milano edged 2-1. In team news, only Tyren Arendse and long-term absentee Xolani Mabaso remains sidelined with Brian Onyango fit to return to action for this midweek tie. By Trevor Kramer
