SEKHUKHUNE – SAFA Sekhukhune Region matches are increasing the heat with the league nearing play-offs and teams fighting for the top spot on the log to qualify for the Nedbank Cup knock-out stages.
Tsimanyane village’s Ratanang FC moved to the 9th spot on the log after playing to a one-all draw against Letebejane’s Juventus FC on Saturday.
Rocks FC defeated Ntwane Young Stars by two goals to nil, Kingborn FC collected maximum points through a walk-over against Dennilton City while Try Again FC played also to a one-all draw against Magakadimeng Vultures FC. Ditlou FC won by three goals to nil against Hungry Lions.
Bobby Manasoe, SAFA Sekhukhune Region Under 15 Technical Director, said it was unfortunate that Mekgolokwane FC from Thoto in Jane Furse, one of the promising outfits in the league, was terminated and all their goals and points were removed from the log as a result of failing to honour some of their matches due to lack of sponsors.
Manasoe said Sekhukhune SAFA Region C Stream was left with two games to end the league and Rocks FC were promising to represent their stream in the play-offs to be held for the first time in the region.
“We congratulate Ngwaabe City Motors FC in the Tubatse B Stream for their consistence in winning the league still with four games at hand. They boast a record breaking achievement of 100 goals in one season and hope their players will inspire the rest because they have proved there is talent,” concluded Manasoe.
Lazarus Mmadi, Ratanang FC Managing Director, urged aspiring youngsters from neighbouring communities to participate in the outfit’s annual pre-season trails and training camps which will be hosted from 20 June 2018.
Mmadi advised aspiring young talents to come register in their numbers, especially those from Letebejane, Mooihoek and Tsimanyane villages.
