The JVW Football Club is elated to announce the promotion of Development team players, Jade Leask, Aliyaah Allie and Cimone Sauls to the JVW FC First team ahead of the start of the SAFA Women’s National League.
Leask and Sauls have made tremendous strides over the years coming through the development structure, whilst Allie was registered with the Junior team towards the end of 2019. All three players are part of the JVW-ESCA program, and represented the U17 Women’s National Team in past WC Qualifiers and the COSAFA (U17) Championship.
The trio come into the team as goal hungry attacking players, and will be looking to gain as much as they can from their experienced teammates in the upcoming seasons.
The First team, still waiting to make their debut National League appearance, after Covid restrictions stopped football in 2020, will be rearing to go with new faces adding to an already illustrious squad.
The team sailed through the 2019 Sasol League Championship, beating Ma-Indies 2-0 in the final match of the tournament and finally engraved their name on the SASOL League Trophy, after a 1-0 loss in the final to Bloemfontein Celtic in 2016.
Founded in 2012, and SASOL League debut in 2013, the JVW Football Club has reached set out targets, and grown in leaps and bounds over the past 7 years. With high profile signings, National team players, a gold medal and a name that is known to all Women’s football fans in South Africa, the club is a force to be reckoned with, as they seek to play for Top position and CAF Champions League spot in the upcoming league.
