Seneo has bagged an award as a youth coach, for the impressive work he is doing with the youngsters of Alexandra Black Aces. 

The former centre back is currently the coach of Aces’ U15 team. The 41-year-old led Aces’ U15 team to an impressive run, where they were unbeaten all season as they won their league with a 23-point gap over second-placed Bidvest Wits.

Seneo received the Club Coach of the Year award at Aces’ 2017 prize giving evening.

“This is my third year with Aces. When I joined the club, I joined as the Under-16 coach. Last year, I was promoted to be the Under-17 coach and we won the league. But like I always say, winning the league is not everything in the development.

"The primary objective is to get the boys ready for the first team. But we do understand that the boys have to also celebrate sometimes in the process while knowing that the ultimate reward is to get to a professional level,” said Seneo.

The Kuruman-born former footballer previously played for the likes of Black Leopards, Golden Arrows and Platinum Stars in his career. He retired in 2011. Seneo is enthusiastic about working with the youngsters at Aces.

“After the team (Aces) sold its PSL status to Cape Town City, the academy was kept. I was given the role of coaching the Under-15 team this year. We are trying to prepare the youngster to be the future generation. For me, it was a new challenge. I have never coached the Under-15s before. It’s been a learning curve,” he concluded.
