The opening matches for the Sasol Women’s League in the Limpopo Stream will be played this weekend. The league programme should have commenced last weekend, but the league was compelled to postpone the fixture to this weekend at the eleventh hour.
All eyes will be on the Vhembe derby between Chippas United Ladies FC and Lacoste Morning Stars at the Makhuvha Stadium on Sunday afternoon. Sparks always fly whenever Chippas and Morning Stars meet.
The managing director of Chippas, Mr Robson Magoro, said that he was happy about the fact that they were commencing the new season with a derby. He stated that the game against Morning Stars would assist them in measuring their level of readiness for the new season. Mr Magoro revealed that they had played a few friendly matches and tournaments over the past months in a bid to keep the players fit. According to him, they had played against a squad from Tshamutshedzi village at the Tshamutshedzi grounds on Sunday, 28 March, a day after they had played against Samba Girls at the Mbaleni grounds. They beat Samba Girls 4-2 and crushed the Tshamutshedzi squad 3-1. “Judging from the team’s performance against Tshamutshedzi and Samba Girls, we are convinced that the team is ready for the new season,” said Mr Magoro.
Mr Magoro’s counterpart from the Stars’ camp, Mr Emmanuel Mudau, said that his players could not wait to kick the ball after such a long break. He said that he had assembled the best squad ever.
Sealane Ladies will host Tshandama Young Stars at the Rabali Stadium. Merwe United Ladies will pay a visit to Botlokwa Ladies at the Sefene School grounds in Botlokwa.
