Ex-Buccaneer Retires

Former Orlando Pirates’ striker, Reason Chiloane, who spent most of his career in the NFD, has announced his retirement from professional football. 
 
 
The 34-year-old, who spent the bulk of his career playing in the National First Division, contacted Soccer Laduma last month in order to clarify his situation, confirming that he has hung up his boots.
 
Up until recently Chiloane had been playing his football for African Warriors, however, he has now turned his eyes towards forging a coaching career for himself.
 
Speaking in the latest issue of Soccer Laduma, the former striker said, “I’m currently assistant coach at Mpumalanga ABC Motsepe team, Acornbush Bush United FC. I believe it’s time to say, ‘Let the young ones take over.’  To represent a big team like Pirates was unbelievable and playing for the Buccaneers will always be something I’ll cherish in my life, especially beating Manchester City in the 2009 Vodacom Challenge. I also faced Manchester United, which was huge. To play alongside big-name players is just great.
 
“Returning to Bushbuckridge has been marvellous as it’s my way of giving back to the community. You might see us in the NFD next season, as Acornbush kills every team.”
 
Chiloane represented Pirates, Atlie FC, Thanda Royal Zulu and Warriors, among others, during his career.
