PANORAMA residents can once again walk with pride and shoulders held high because one of its sons has joined South Africa’s biggest and richest soccer phase, the Premier Soccer League (PSL).

The ex-Longmarket Street Primary School, Pelham Primary School and Maritzburg College pupil, Quincy Kagiso­ Ngcobo recently signed a three- year contract with KZN’s PSL outfit, Lamontville­ Golden Arrows.

“Finally my dream has became reality­. It is true, I am now an Arrows player, officially,” he said this week.

His official jersey number is 29. Although he yet has to play an official PSL match, Ngcobo has already played a couple of friendlies during the pre-season.

“We played against AmaZulu, Chippa United, Royal Eagles, the KZN U19 squad and Uthukela Squad.

Ngcobo started his soccer career with amateur sides Liverpool (Panorama­), Lions (Woodlands), Nifa All Stars (Imbali), Brazil (Woodlands) UMgungundlovu Academy and later Sobantu Shooting Stars.

This year Ngcobo completed his Bachelor of Social Science in government business ethics.

Ngcobo, born in 1990, 3 May, 1990, and feels age is still on his side.

“I am not too young or too old for PSL. In fact I’m happy that it happened after I sorted out my education because my parents always wanted me to make sure I am armed with education first,”said Ngcobo.

Ngcobo says as a new player in the elite league, he is expecting it will take a while for him to settle down.

“I’m not in a hurry for anything. I am learning from our senior players like Mabhuti Khenyeza and others. My proper chance to show my stuff will definitely arrive.”

His former teammates from Sobantu Shooting Stars also wish him good luck and think he will make it.

His new coach at Abafana Bes’thende, Serame Letsoaka says Ngcobo will be one of the well established players in the PSL in few months to come.

“He is a good player, well focused, disciplined, dedicated and he won’t battle to find his feet.

“Give him a couple of months and after few games he will be alright,” said Letsoaka
