AmaZulu goalkeeper Stephens hoping to improve

AmaZulu’s first choice goalkeeper Sage Stephens reflects on his first full season with the club in the National First Division (NFD).

The 25-year-old goal-minder joined Usuthu at the beginning of the 2015/16 campaign from Moroka Swallows who had been relegated from the Absa Premiership.

“Well, I think I did well for the team this past season when looking back at the games that I played,” Stephens told

Stephens, who made 19 league appearances for Usuthu, kept experienced shot-stopper Energy Murambadoro on the bench most of the time.

However, the 25-year-old feels that he still needs to improve some aspects of his game in order to remain the team’s first-choice goalkeeper.

“However, I still feel that there is always room for improvement in my game. It’s something that I will work on going forward,” he added.

Stephens, who featured in six Absa Premiership matches for Swallows during the 2014/15 season, is looking forward to working with new AmaZulu head coach Joey Antipas.

“He has just been down to meet the team and watch our training sessions,” Stephens concluded.

Usuthu finished ninth in the NFD this past season.
