Cavin Johnson's Season Review

Platinum Stars coach, Cavin Johnson, says that he is happy with how this season went, but is even more excited with the brand of football that his side have been playing.

Dikwena performed above expectations this season, chasing Kaizer Chiefs for the title up until the penultimate game of the season, as well as reaching the semi-finals of the Nedbank Cup.

When asked whether he was both pleased with the campaign but disappointed at the lack of trophies, Johnson explained that this is not the case.

He told the Siya crew, “It’s never mixed emotions. I think that in one moment we set ourselves a target for the season, we ended up in the best position this club has had in six or seven years and for that we’re very grateful. However, in another moment it’s very easy to analyse things after, if you look at it in respect of who we are and who we are challenging with, we’re happy with our season.

“We’re over excited at where we ended up this season, and we’re even more excited that Kaizer Chiefs won the league with only one more point than us. The best thing for this team now is that they’ve started weaving the brand of football that we’d like to play, that’s what we’re looking at.”

The Phokeng-based outfit have already lost Thuso Phala and Enocent Mkhabela to SuperSport United on pre-contracts, and they will need to strengthen their squad significantly in the new season if they are to challenge for the title once again.
