Empowering young athletes for a bright future.
OACL adopted a football team, Ashley United, as part of a community upliftment project in the Clermont area of KZN. Moshe Motlohi, Durban Port Manager, first introduced the project to OACL and explained how it assisted youngsters from disadvantaged backgrounds, providing them with a sense of belonging, helping them focus on achievable goals and winning!
Ashley United’s home ground is the Christiannburg Stadium in Clermont. They won the SAB League in the 2015/16 season, subsequently winning the national playoffs to be promoted to the ABC Motsepe League which is the third tier of the South African Football Association.
