So, this is what you came for in October, the month we themed ‘Support’ and focused on Soccer:

Feature Articles:

Banyana You Beauty followed gsport’s visit to the National Women’s Team’s Academy at the Pretoria High Performance Centre;

We met the main man supporting women: Banyana Banyana coach Augustine Makalakalane, the former men’s national player tasked to take the women’s team to the 2007 Women’s Soccer World Cup;

Our Sport for Starters feature focussed on helping us play the beautiful game with coaching supreme Fran Hilton-Smith;

gsport chatted to Interactive Sport, a great initiative behind Women’s Corporate Soccer all around the country; and

gsport’s regular motivational writer Michele Wolhuter took a fresh look at the concept of Support, a very popular read by all accounts.
