The Beacon Bay Celtics Football Club is based in Nompumelelo informal settlement and was established in 2001. The team is affiliated to the East London Local Football Association (LFA) and earlier this year was promoted from the Super Division to the Professional SAB league.
The passionate management team dedicate not only their time, but also their expertise in training the Football and now also the Netball teams in an ongoing effort to get the youth of Nompumelelo off the streets and onto the sports field.
“Putting corporate social investment into action, Beacon Bay Retail Park was so taken with the dedication and commitment of all involved in the Beacon Bay Celtics Football Club, that when approached for assistance, we committed to fulfilling their dreams of showing off their developing skills on the sports field in brand new Netball and Soccer uniforms. Beacon Bay Retail Park did not stop there as we also saw a need to provide a club tracksuit for all players and managers. We are honoured to be a small part of the teams journey” Said Urshula Pape, Centre Manager of Beacon Bay Retail Park.
Masizakhe Tyeni, Team Manager of the Beacon Bay Celtics commented, “With the generous support of Beacon Bay Retail Park, we hope that we can continue with the success we have achieved and build upon it. Like other sporting codes, we believe that football is not only a great sport but it teaches young men of our communities about life skills such as teamwork, perseverance, commitment, passion, work ethics and all stresses are relieved on the field.”
