June 2, 2009 (RUMBEK) — A friendly football match between two rival teams of Zalan and Ramciel ended in a tie on Sunday evening in Yirol West County in Lakes state.

Officials including the county authority presented the match as a wonderful event that in fact reflects togetherness among youth of Lakes state, where youth groups often organized on a clan basis have engaged in cattle raiding and other bloodshed. The match was organized by the special directorate of sport in the Lakes state Ministry of Information, Youth and Sport.

The two teams, Zalan and Ramciel, both have unique meanings: Zalan means sad while Ramciel means "meeting point of Rhinos."

According to Commissioner Agok Manyiel, the Zalan football team coming from Rumbek was composed of 30 people. He also added that this is not the first time a football competition is organized in Yirol West County and he referred to the Diocese of Rumbek, which has organized different matches among Yirol West County primary schools. He said their competitions were very successful. He concluded that this is now the first time the government organizes her own team to compete in Yirol West.

"I started to kick the football and now it is zero versus zero both sides, I hope the state government will support the players to carry on their career; this is wonderful match," said the commissioner. "In this competition we will select the best players that will actually represent the Lakes state level in outside competition such as inter-state competition."

      It does not worth reporting, but it substantiates very valuably, in that it postulates the notion of civility and acceptance, which our people hardly have.

        Dear Readers,
        I would like to draw your attention in relation to football playing.Management is like football playing.Eleven players in the field playing as a team not individually.Each gives a pass to the team mate creating oppoortunities for scoring.Not all the players will kit the ball at thesame time and at once.However,in management not all the people can be leaders but few who the rest have decided to give them the powers to lead.Before going for ball match, the team captain assigned each player a predetermined position where that person during practice has proved his best to manage it.Likewise all citizens cann’t be leaders without those to be led.The players suffer alot of pains here and there during playing however, the expectators enjoy watching them running and falling or scoring.Thesame applied to leadership.You as a leader you face challenges every moment,failures sometimes and the citizens might enjoy your shortcomings thinking they could do it better but in reality is the reverse.
        Football playing shold be encourged to the citizens to identified their good players and compare themselves with the near by Counties.
        Azima

          Dear brothers and sisters,the only way we can achieve level of unity , to have better understanding amongst ourselves like what you guys did,it is good to spend plenty of time on organising matches between amongst yourselves instead to enagage on the tribalism and nepotism. we need this kind of unity to all youth of lake state . I apperciated you very much to all the management team leaders and players who organised this wonderful matches. Keep it this kind of spirit, we are tied of killing each ,every minutes or hour you never going hear good news, you can hear that other clans attack and other clans. may mighty god bless you all and give you knowledge and wisdom to do things in one mind and one heart.
