The race is not always to the swift, but to those who keep on running. ~Author unknown, in reference to Ecclesiastes 9:11

Golden Stars F.C., a team started not only to break the cycle of youth substance abuse and crime, but also to nurture talent has indeed kept in the race and continue to make us proud.

Despite a severe lack of resources, the fine young men continue on their journey to creating positive change in the Rooigrond Informal Settlement. Their efforts are never more evident than when they are playing on the field- their passion for the game; their love for their fans and above all, their commitment and dedication are felt by all who flock to watch them play.

And in this continuing journey, the team has even created a second division, the Golden Stars F.C under 18 team has joined this move to encourage the youth. We hope to ensure that the team continues to grow and that in time, poverty will not be a hindrance to the vast talent available in this community.

No-one should ever have their dreams taken away from them, due to circumstances out of their hands, especially as no-one chooses to be born to poverty.
