Free State Stars Have Hired A New Head Coach

Free State Stars confirmed the appointment of their new head coach for the upcoming season, after Serame Letsoaka's exit.

Ea Lla Koto has brought in Sammy Troughton, who nearly led Stellenbosch FC to promotion, to lead the team for the 2017/18 season, with the Irish coach having signed a two-year contract at the club.

The 53-year-old, who has spent many years coaching and playing in South Africa, saw his Stellenbosch side miss out on a top-flight spot in the 2016/17 promotion, but he will get his chance back in the big leagues on a personal level.

The news was confirmed to the Siya crew by Rantsi Mokoena, Stars' general manager.

Stars finished 14th last season as they avoided the play-offs because of their superior goal difference and Mokoena's club will be hoping for better under Troughton this season, as they target a higher position in the league.

With Sly Mosala as his assistant I'm sure they can change fortunes of Stars like they did well with Pretoria City

Hahahahaha nobody is optimistic in this topic as far as the newly-appointed coach is concerned.one huge disease infecting FSS is interference like in @OPfc eg Hw many players did S Troughton sign or released himself? There were players who were signed n some were released b4 the new coach was announced then the question becomes who did those transfers?
