Free State Stars have confirmed that the club has parted ways with eight players from the squad of the 2016/17 season.
The list of outgoing players from the Bethlehem outfit includes former Orlando Pirates midfielder, Nhlakanipho Ntuli, as well as Zambian defender, Davies Nkausu, as predicted by the Siya crew.
Ea Lla Koto issued a statement on the club’s official website confirming players that have been released.
With pre-season preparation, a few weeks away the squad clear-out has commenced at Free State Stars ahead of the new season.
Ea Lla Koto will bid farewell to a few club stalwarts who’ve provided Bethlehem with fond memories and will no doubt be missed following the expiry of their contracts. While three other players have been issued their clearance as they are no longer part of the club’s long-term plans.
Defenders David Nkausu, Bokang Tlhone, Thabang Matuka, midfielder Angelo Kerspuy and former Premiership top scorer Moeketsi Sekola will all officially depart with their deals expiring on the 30th of this month.
Thlone agreed to a pre-contract with Champions Bidvest Wits, while Sekola agreed to join recently relegated side Highlands Park.
Nyiko Tshabangu, Mbuyiselo Thethani, Nhlakanipho Ntuli have also departed from Goble Park.
We wish the players good luck in their future endeavours.
