Notwane FC lifts the Madonsela Cup

Four football teams, Mochudi Centre Chiefs, Notwane FC, Mochudi Rovers and Rasesa Precosta took part in the Shono Madonsela Cup over the President Holidays in which Notwane Football Club emerged victors after defeating Mochudi Centre Chiefs 2-1 at the finals.

The tournament went well according to Alec Monyake, one of the organizers. There were slightly over 200 spectators. In the losers final Rovers beat Rasesa Precostar 1- 0 while in the first Semi-Finals Notwane Beat Mochudi Rovers 2-1 and the second Semi-Finals Rasesa Precostar and Center Chiefs drew with 2 goals each. Chiefs advanced through penalties winning 5-4.

Alec Monyake added that the tournament went well, all teams were happy with the preparations.The referees handled the games well and were considered fair. What was evident was that a tournament of this magnitude needs a sponsor to relieve teams from spending too much. Gate takings alone are not enough to cover all the expenses which include feeding teams and guest referees, advertising, transport and communication expenses.
