Coming within touching distance towards reaching this year’s Multichoice Diski Shield semi-finals may under normal circumstances leave any side feeling distraught.
It is not the case for coach Ayanda Dlamini who has praised his charges for coming off age having produced a stellar performance in their last match of the Diski Shield by thumping Chippa United 5-0.
“I’m pleased with the way my boys performed throughout the tournament, but I’m even prouder of how they did in our last match against Chippa.
They brought their A game in that match, and I couldn’t have asked for anything more.”
“It was just unfortunate that we lost out due to head the head rule as according to tournament rules.
“All we can say is good luck to Golden Arrows who will represent our region. I think all four teams in our group made it an exciting affair,” said Dlamini.
AmaZulu and Golden Arrows share the same number of points, application of the tournament rules and format ruled had to be enforced to determine the winner of group D.
They did fairly well in the Diski Challenge with a 6th position finish having stayed close to the leading pack during the whole of this season’s campaign.
“It doesn’t end here for my players, I believe they have a bright future ahead of them if they remain humble and take it step by step,” said Dlamini.
Promising striker, Bayanda Shangase might be already on the right path according to the man nicknamed Cobra as his latest U20 national call up suggests.Share
