BSI Players of the Month

Hard work pays off, ask our students!

Congratulations to Bernard Meyer, who was voted as BSI Junior Academy Player for the month of March by our senior coaching team. Bernard’s stroke average for March in our BSI medals was 73,5, however it is in the Golf RSA events that he has started to find his feet. With a 36th place finish at the prestigious Northern Amateur Open at Country Club Johannesburg and a T17 at the North West Open at Rustenburg GC, he has leaped into the top 100 of the Golf RSA Open Amateur rankings for the first time.

Congratulations to Academy student Jules Helary, who has been voted as the BSI Premier Player of the Month for the month of March by our senior coaching team. His biggest achievement of the month came at the Royal Johannesburg and Kensington GC Club Championships, where he lifted the trophy after a wire-to-wire victory with scores of 69 and 72.

Not Just Golf

A great start to the season

It was a proud occasion for the Balderstone family last week as Balderstone FC played its first competitive matches. Our senior 2nd team kicked off proceedings on Friday evening at the Italian Club with a come-from-behind 2-2 draw against Olympia FC. Then on Saturday, our senior 1st team beat Birchacres FC 2-0. Our teams are made up entirely of our academy players. Our youngest players will start their campaign in the Junior League after Easter.

My father, Chris Balderstone made 566 professional appearances across a 30-year playing career for the likes of Huddersfield Town and Carlisle United, so football is very much in the blood.

A special mention to my partners in BSI Football, Zeca Marques and Eurico Marques for the amazing work they are doing within the academy. We’re building something very special. Watch this space.

U19 Football Player of the Month:
Nkateko Mangolela

 When players are determined to improve, their training and matches are reflections of their will. Nkateko has shown a desire to improve all aspects of his football throughout his time at BSI. He started like a house on fire in 2021 and has continued to burn into the start of the season. As a result, he was selected as the Captain for the first league match last week and his maturity as a leader dragged his team back from 2 - 0 down to earn an admirable 2 - 2 draw against an experienced Olympia FC side. Well done NK. Keep up the intensity.

U23 Football Player of the Month for March:
Bernard Johnson

Leaving Liberia, Bernard has ventured into the South African football landscape. March has been a breakthrough month for him, scoring twice on debut. His outstanding dedication, perseverance and determination at training has meant that Bernard has grown into his role as the target man for BSI's senior team. He looks hungry for goals and with the season just kicking off, we have no doubt his appetite will be fulfilled. Let the confidence build Bernard.
