Larsen's Review Of The Season

After what has been quite a successful season for his side, Bloemfontein Celtic coach Clinton Larsen says that he has got mixed feelings on their most recent campaign.

Siwelele have had a stop/start PSL season this year, although victory in the Telkom Knockout against Mamelodi Sundowns secured them their first piece of silverware since 2005, and they managed to finish three places higher than the previous season on the Absa Premiership table.

Speaking to the Siya crew, Larsen explained that there are many positives to come out of this campaign, mainly the impressive form of a number of his young charges.

He said, “It’s a feeling of mixed emotion. If you look at the positives of the season, the first thing would be the emergence of some of the young players at the club, the likes of (Limbikani) Mzava, (Lyle) Lakay, (Lerato) Manzini and (Ruzaigh) Gamildien, I think they’ve been outstanding. I think that was a big highlight and a big plus for the club.

“At the beginning of the season we met to discuss targets for the club and we all said that we were vying for a top five finish and hopefully one of the cups, it’s funny how it’s worked out precisely how we wanted to. We’ve had a good finish and won a cup, they’re obviously highlights for us.”

However, Larsen did say that while he was pleased, there are still a number of issues that he wants to work on ahead of their next campaign.

Larsen went on, “On the negative side I must say once again that our inconsistency has been our Achilles heel. Our failure to convert the numerous chances that we create, as was the case against Swallows again, has been frustrating for us through the season.

“We’re also disappointed as a team with some results, games where we should have won and lost or drew, overall everybody is pleased with how things went. We now need to be build on this for next season and add a few more astute additions to the team.”
