In Time: Swallows Honour Promise To Pay

Swallows FC have avoided a possible revolt just a day before taking on Orlando Pirates by honouring their promise to pay their players, the Siya crew has been informed.

Murmurs of a possible player strike started doing the rounds after Siya sources informed the crew that a number of senior players at the club had only been paid half of their July salaries, with a promise from the club that they would receive the full amounts at a later stage.

The promise to the players was for 4 August.

According to two independent Siya sources, players had grown disgruntled by the delay in their payment and talk of a possible boycott of Saturday’s match against Pirates surfaced.

However, the Siya crew has since been informed that the players had received their full salaries, as initially promised by the club.

This could be seen as a welcomed morale booster ahead of the original Soweto Derby.

Swallows will be hoping for a better showing this campaign, having survived relegation by virtue of the relegation/promotion play-offs in the 2021/22 season. 

Stand a chance to win the Sundowns home and away kit valued at R2398!
