QUINCY Ngcobo, former Lions FC (MDFA), Sobantu Shooting Stars player and ex-Maritzburg College pupil and Panorama resident (Ward 34) has finally­ made his professional debut for Lamontville Golden Arrows.

Ngcobo got his dream break on Saturday in the starting line-up when Arrows played SuperSport United at Chatsworth Stadium. He played for the entire game, but unfortunately Abafana Bes’thende lost 3-0 to the visitors.

After the game the level-headed and soft-spoken 24-year old Ngcobo said he was not told beforehand and did not expect to be in the starting 11 against the Pretoria side.

“It came as a shock and a big surprise when my head coach Clinton Larsen told me on Saturday morning. I really appreciate the trust and faith displayed by Larsen and his technical bench in me.

“My debut was not bad at all, although I was a bit nervous in the first 10 minutes. My first touch was always going to be very important, and I made it,” said Ngcobo.

Ngcobo joined Arrows from Sobantu­ Shooting Stars early this season, but spent most of his time in reserve and in the MultiChoice Diski League.

“I did not mind at all because remember, I came from an amateur team and lacked experience in the elite league. I had good support from everybody around me and I knew that one day my chance would come and it came on Saturday. It was indeed a special day for me.

“Although we lost 3-0, after the game I had many messages of encouragement from Panorama, Sobantu­, Northdale, Woodlands, Eastwood and from all over Pietermaritzburg.

“Thank you to everybody from the City of Choice who watched and supported me,” said Ngcobo.
