In his first season plying trade in the Middle East, a South African midfielder has achieved a rare feat, by helping his team gain promotion to the top division.

Having left Mzansi earlier this year to join Al-Sareeh SC in Jordan as reported by the Siya crew, Jacob Hlalele has helped the club to gain promotion to the country’s Premier League.
