The Bloemfontein Celtic women’s football team’s third position finish overall in the National Women’s League signals a bright future, head coach Edwin Lisene reckons. He says his charges proved their worth among the 12 clubs in the league which is run under the auspices of the South African Football Association (Safa).The team gained valuable experience to give it a strong foot-hold in the forthcoming 2020/’21 season. The current 2019/’20 season is left with just one game to finish having been suspended along all sport competitions due the global coronavirus outbreak. Celtic will wrap up the season playing against Cola City Wizards in Mpumalanga. Celtic lost the title contest to run-away winner Mamelodi Sundowns, who will finish on 66 points if they win their tough fixture against the Tshwane University of Technology (TUT). If TUT wins the fixture, they will finish on 57 points.Celtic trailed by 20 points to the champions Sundowns, who are yet to lose a game.According to Lisene, a third finish overall showed his team has the potential to compete for the title other than only competing to secure a position in the league.Under the guidance of Lisene, the Celtic women’s team has been making history. The team won two national Sasol Women’s League titles, in 2016 and 2017, respectively. It is the first women’s team in South Africa to attain this feat. The club has won the provincial title a record 12 times under the same coach.As he builds for the future, Lisene said the remaining match is an opportunity for younger players to establish themselves and gain valuable experience. He said the introduction of young players has been ongoing during the second round of the competition.Lisene’s aspiration is to transform the team into all-conquering once again.
