Tuks out to make history

UWC ladies coach Nathan Peskin says his team know exactly what to expect in their Varsity Football semifinal against TUT in Mafikeng on Monday.

The Cape side finished fourth at the USSA tournament and are familiar with the other three teams that played in the semifinals to qualify for Varsity Football.

Peskin said that all four teams play an attractive style of football which should make for some thrilling action when UWC and TUT square off in Mafikeng and UJ host UP-Tuks in curtain-raiser to the men’s Varsity Football semifinals.

“We know all of the teams in the competition quite well and have a fair idea of how they play. All of them play good passing, carpet football,” he said.

Peskin has been coaching at UWC for five years, and although preparations for Varsity Football have not been ideal due to a few disruptions, he and his squad have been hard at work.

“We have been busy, we play twice a week and train twice a week so we have put in a fair amount of work,” he said.

Having played TUT at the national club championships last year, the UWC coach knows that his team are in for a stern test in Mafikeng.

“We know that they have quite a few good players and there should be a good crowd so we will try to enjoy it,” said Peskin.
