Bucs Confirm Loan Move For Young Striker

Orlando Pirates have confirmed sending one of their young strikers out on loan.

According to Bucs official website, striker Lerato Lepasa has completed a loan move to National First Division side, Stellenbosch FC.

“I’m looking forward to the challenge of playing in the NFD. It’s a great opportunity for me to raise my game in a very tough and competitive environment,” said the Burly forward. 

“I spent the pre-season with our first team and already got a taste of higher level competition so this is the next logical step for me. I have seen a little bit of how Stellenbosch plays and I believe I can fit in here and do well. It won’t be easy but I’m a hard worker so that should carry me through,” he added. 

Lepasa has enjoyed success in his maiden SAB League season, where he led the Bucs attack in a successful campaign which saw the Soweto giants winning the league and play-offs to gain promotion to the ABC Motsepe League.

The Soweto giants have also confirmed that Lepasa will return to the team following his one-year loan spell in June 2019.

Meanwhile, the Sea Robbers are away to Chippa United this evening in the second PSL fixture of the season.
