UL captain, Pholoshi Bapela, believes a lack of experience and composure has been the result of the bad performances in Varsity Football this season.
Bapela played an integral role in defence for the Limpopo students, who finished their 2014 campaign second from bottom with three points.
He believes the young UL team were inexperienced and naive, but will come back much stronger next season after learning some valuable lessons this year.
“I think we tried our best, but at time we panicked and rushed things. We lacked composure, but the players are motivated to improve and succeed next season.
“We will do better because most of the players will stay with us and we have learnt the hard way this year,” Bapela said.
The skipper says UL are keen to qualify for next year’s Varsity Football competition and will work hard on strengthening their weaknesses.
“I know a few coaches have complimented the tactics we’ve used, but I feel there’s a lot to work on. Our reaction to goals needs improvement and so does our concentration after scoring first,” he added.
UL ended their season with a hard-earned 1-1 draw to UJ, who have been the top team in the tournament this season.
