As for the rankings, there is not much to say but we want to focus on the fact 2 clubs (Cape town City and Wamme SC) joined the Junior ranking of clubs, which is always great news.
Don't hesitate to run tournaments under the WASPA banner. It's a great way to promote your club, to attract new players and to create local or regional development and we all agree this is what the game needs nowadays.
