Langa Rugby Club summed up the year in style by honouring their best players for the year during a glittering ceremony held at Guga Sthebe on Saturday 30 November.

The event also coincided with the club’s celebration for being promoted to the Super League B in the new rugby season. The club won the Super League C play-off against Scottsdene Central at Newlands stadium on Tuesday 24 September.

Player and spokesperson for the club Sipho Mgobozi described the event as a big achievement for the club and said it was their main objective as a team to succeed.

Mgobozi stated that they held the event to honour players for their hard work. He said from the u.20 team, Inga Sikrweqe, was awarded the player of the year and his team received certificates for participation in their league.

The second team received the awards for best backline and frontline.

The first team received the awards for best backline, best frontline, player’s player of the season and player of the season. Mgobozi described their secret was working hard and to play united as a team.

“It was about teamwork and commitment. We were all fighting for success,” he said. However, he stated that their major challenge is to get a sponsorship.

“Sometimes we have to cough up money out of our pockets for transport. And don’t have tracksuits that players can wear even off the field so that they can be recognisable,” he emphasised.

He added that for next season they want to fimiliarise themselves with the new league to be able to sustain.

“We need to recruit new players to enhance our squad to be able to compete,” he stated.
