FOURIESBURG. – An entertaining, yet low-paced game, saw Free State Legends and Vaal Legends play to a 1-1 draw on Saturday, 28 May, at the Fouriesburg Stadium.

Phaskal Mabitle, former Dynamos player, scored for the Vaal Masters and Sakia Makoanyane, formerly of Free State Stars, netted an equaliser.

Despite the slow pace, the masters displayed good skills and their experience shone through.

The Free State team featured most of the players from Qwaqwa Stars, now Free State Stars.

They featured the likes of Simla Mashinini, Mohau Mokopanela, Themba Seli, Thato Mokoena, Mokgiso Mokotjo and Hleza Mofeli, to mention just a few.

Ace Gulwa, Thembile Kanono and Moeketsi were former Bloemfontein Celtics players.

Players like Seila Tshabala (Pirates), Jabu Mguni (Pirates), China Masondo (Pirates), Papi Mbele (Swallows), Peter Kgoabane (SuperSport) and Lefa Mokgaila (Platinum Stars) represented the Vaal team.

Kanono said they were happy to come together as masters to show the community what they were capable off.

“We are not professional footballers anymore, but we still show up at events like this so that people know that we are still around. We hope to visit other towns in future,” he said.

Tshabalala said they appreciated what the Free State Masters did and added that they would return to give them a better game. “We are not fit yet. We just have to go back and train a bit before coming here again. I was very impressed with the support that we got from the Fouriesburg community.”
