Matlama to face Botswana’s Township Rollers, Sundawana sign Ghana duo

Matlama's opponents, Township Rollers
Matlama will play Botswana’s Township Rollers in a pre-season friendly match on August 6 at Setsoto Stadium.

The match will be a meeting of Lesotho and Botswana’s most successful clubs.

Rollers have won the Botswana Premier League a record 12 times, five more than the next best team, Botswana Defence Force XI. Matlama, for their part, have been Lesotho champions on nine occasions.

Staying with the Vodacom Premier League and Sundawana have made their intentions for the 2016/17 season clear by completing the signings of Ghanaian pair Norman Kumatse and Ernest Antwi.

The Butha-Buthe side surprised many by claiming fourth place in the league last season and they appear determined to build on that success.

Sundawana have already tied highly-rated striker Roboama Koloti to a new contract in an attempt to ward off interest from Lioli and Bantu amongst others.

Tse Bo Yellow have now bolstered their squad with the additions of striker Kumatse and midfielder Antwi. Kumatse (22) and Antwi (20) have both signed four-year contracts with the Butha-Buthe club.

Sundawana have also appointed Sidwell Mothea as coach to take over from last season miracle-worker, Bob Mafoso. Mafoso left last month to take up a role as assistant coach of Bantu.
