Lonza Fulfills A Goal For Try Again Football Club


October 16, 2013, Port Shepstone - The dreams and aspirations of Ugu District's Try Again FC team, received a tremendous boost when Lonza Wood Protection stepped in and kitted the team out with brand new quality soccer boots, shin guards, training bibs, goalkeeper gloves and 21 training balls. The boys of Try Again FC, also known as the UGU S.A.F.A. - S.A.B League or the 4th Division of the South African Football Association, now run onto the field with a renewed sense of team pride. This has brought a turning a point in the lives of these young and talented soccer players, according to Albert Ngcobo, team coach and Production Supervisor at Lonza Wood Protection.

"Before receiving the new kit, the boys had to borrow soccer boots and shin guards each time they played. We only had three soccer balls and no training bibs or cones. The sponsorship the team has received from Lonza is more than just new kit. It tells these young players that Lonza believes in their talent and is prepared to invest in their soccer career. Words cannot describe how grateful we are," said Albert Ngcobo.

Lonza Wood Protection's Marketing Manager, Gerard Busse, commented, "It is a core objective of Lonza to care for its community and we are thrilled at the opportunity to play a role in providing not only equipment, but an inspiration to a young and talented soccer team to believe in and pursue your dreams at all costs".

"Try Again Football Club management would like to express their gratitude to Lonza for a job well done to inspire the disadvantaged youth in our community. We look forward to building on this relationship in the future," concluded Alson Ngcobo, Try Again Team Manager.
