The Pride of Rooigrond, Golden Stars F.C

Posted: January 25, 2011 in Developments in Rooigrond

Substance abuse and crime had become quite common practices amongst the youth of the Rooigrond Informal Settlement area. In an effort to tackle this problem, with the very appreciated assistance of Mr. Thabiso Moleleki and Orapeleng Khula, Golden Stars F.C was born, on the 30th November 2009.

It hasn’t always been easy, due to a lack of resources; yet the team members have faced all challenges with exemplary loyalty, dedication
and even now, they continue with amazing perseverance. The team has also made an incredible impact in the community, as they have managed to draw very supportive and dedicated fans, who go the extra mile to show their support for the team. Some even go as far as following the team by foot whenever they play outside games.

Golden Stars F.C. has built a sense of pride amongst the youth of Rooigrond Informal Settlement and every effort is made by us to ensure that the team’s great efforts are recognised and to ensure that they can continue in their journey of creating a legacy for the youth of the Rooigrond Informal Settlement area.

These fine young men are a shining example to the Rooigrond youth and serve to show that if given the right kind of support, people are willing to work hard to ensure that their dreams become a reality. True evidence that, “Together, we can overcome…”
