Young Chiefs aims to rewrite history and make northern Namibia proud as they face Young African in the semifinals of the 2017 Debmarine Namibia Cup at Otjiwarongo’ s Mokati Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Amathekie, as Young Chiefs are affectionately known, coach Fillimon Kaskas Angula reckons the time has come for Young Chiefs to turn the tide for northern Namibia in a competition dominated by Windhoek-based clubs over the recent times.

“ Teams from central Namibia ,especially Windhoek has been playing in the final and winning this cup for many years and the plan for Amathekie is to change that. We have embarked upon changing that pattern and rewrite history. We have to go all the way and whoever comes our way must do so as their own peril” Angula states.

Young Chiefs will meet Young African at 17h00 in the second match at Otjiwarongo and having torn to pieces another Gobabis-based side in the quarterfinals in Eastern Chiefs, Angula says the mission remains the same.

“ We aim to finish this campaign with the cup on the bus back to Oshakati and so are very focused. The boys confidence is super high now, given that they reached the last four with a very bullish victory at Gobabis and now we face another club from that town and we know they will be prepared and we need to be careful and remain focused”, the former Brave Warriors striker Angula explains.

Young Chiefs recorded a comprehensive 5-1 win over Eastern Chiefs with coach Angula’s son Lee-Roy Angula’ brace and strikes from Kennedy Paulus, Eilo Shipalanga and Uatumba Muheua.

The programme at Mokati starts at 15h00 as Mighty Gunners and Tura magic tussle for a place in the final followed by Young African against Young Chiefs. Match tickets are available on Computicket outlets for N$ 20 each.

Each club for the semifinals will get N$ 20 000 for travel and preparations, and the fees will also be increased to N$ 30 0000 for the two finalists. Man of the Match awards will carry N$ 2000 in the semifinals and N$ 5000 in the final match and the player will have to select a charity of his choice that will receive an equivalent amount.
