QWAQWA. – The South African Football Association’s (Safa) Maluti-a-Phofung Local Football Association (MAPLFA) will have at least three teams campaigning in the Safa South African Breweries (SAB) Regional League.

This good news comes after the launch of a new team, Small Tigers FC. Tigers will join Dikwena United FC, a team that has been recently promoted to the SAB League, as well as the relegated Maluti FET College.

Small Tigers is a new team in Qwaqwa and it is owned by a team of individuals with a rich football history.

This group of people, made up of Lekhetho Mosikatsana, Tshepiso Senyane, Teboho Tsotetsi and Kootlo Moloi, bought the status of a Reitz team, Petsana United FC.

Moloi, chairperson of the team’s board of directors, has revealed to Express Eastern Free State why they have formed the team.

“We bought the team because we love football. We love to see young stars playing football,” said Moloi.

“It was not good to see a professional team like Free State Stars going out of Qwaqwa. There was a time when we had eight teams from Qwaqwa in the SAB League, but now we are left with only three. That on its own should say something.”

He said the team leaders were ex­perienced and they were hoping for the best.

Mosikatsana is the technical director and Tsotetsi the administrator, while Senyane is the public relations officer.

“We have appointed Victor Mokoena to coach the team. The team will be based in Phuthaditjhaba. We have identified the Phuthaditjhaba and Bluegumbosch Stadiums as our home grounds.

“We already have players, but we are not done with the recruitment. We have players from places like Thaba-Bosiu, Tseki, Mateleng and Kestell. Senyane will announce the dates and venues of the trials,” he said.

He concluded by saying they were not in a hurry, but they would take the team to the highest league in the country.

“Many people will ask themselves why we didn’t buy a status in the higher league. To answer that: We are patient and our passion will take us where we want to see our team playing – and that is in the highest league in the country, the Premier Soccer League (PSL).”
