REAL Crusaders finished the Zwide Football Association (Zwifa) First Division League in grand style when they lifted the trophy in victory on Sunday.

Crusaders lost only two and drew one of the 14 games that they had played during the course of the league. Saders, as Crusaders are affectionately called by their loyal supporters, won 11 of their games.

The KwaZakhele-based side accumulated 34 league points after they scored 37 goals.

Head coach Mdibanisi Kakancu stated that he was very excited about his side’s excellent performance. Kakancu revealed that his side put more effort into each game that they played.

“I am elated because my boys are league winners. They have pleased me because there was cooperation between the boys and myself.

“These boys worked very hard and they did not disappoint me. They followed my instructions.” Real Crusaders B received a floating trophy and gold medals, while the runners-up, Bay Tigers, received silver medals.

Golden Aces and Manchester City B were the last two teams on the log table with 11 and four league points respectively.
