Ngobeni Allowed Study Leave By Tuks

University of Pretoria goalkeeper Lebo Ngobeni has been given time off from training to study for his Matric final exams.

Ngobeni is currently a grade 12 learner at the Tuks Sports School in Pretoria, who started their final exams last week along with the rest of the country’s grade 12s.

The 20-year-old shot-stopper has been third in the pecking order at Tuks, and is thought to be the first choice goalkeeper in the national U-20 team.

University of Pretoria media officer, Khathochelo Mbanda, confirmed to the Siya crew that the player will indeed be given time off to fully focus on his Matric final exams.

Mbanda told Soccer-Laduma, “He is a bright young man. He is even a prefect at school. He will be given time off to focus on passing his final exams.”

Mbanda also informed the crew that Ngobeni will no doubt be studying at the University of Pretoria next year, which will inadvertently see the youngster pledge his future to the club.

“He will be studying here at Tuks next year, we aren’t sure what he will study, but I’m sure he knows what he would like to do.”
