STEACH UNITED’S chairman, Simon Mguye, is a heart-broken man.

For many years he has tried to run his team by meeting all expenses associated with it from his own pocket. This does not appear to have paid off and now soccer followers have to swallow the bad news that the team had been expelled from the league.

During the years the team has boosted quality players, such as Tshepo Molefi, Jerry Links and Mxolise Gwayi, who helped the team to win the ABC Motsepe League in the Northern Cape in the 2013-’14 season.

The following season cracks had, however, started to show as most players had left the team for greener pastures.

“Last season players who left the team had done so because of money. I’m happy that they are performing well and making our brand known.

“This season was very tough for us as we were once again faced with a massive player exodus,” Mguye said.

Mguye has always been regarded as a passionate man when it comes to the game of football.

His team is gone now, but he is not willing to give up just yet.

“We are planning to come back much better during the next season.

“We have a bunch of talented young players who want to take the team to greater heights,” he added.

The general feeling among fans is that people with money should invest more in soccer development in the Northern Cape and to help soccer administrators like Mguye, who has sacrificed a lot for the game of football in the province.
