Bucs Starlet: I Will Never Forget This One
Orlando Pirates Young Star Lyle Foster Speaks On First Team Goal
Orlando Pirates’ Lyle Foster has spoken on scoring his first goal in an official PSL match for the club.
Foster scored the all-important equaliser for the Soweto giants in their 1-1 draw with Polokwane City at the weekend. The 87th-minute strike for the young star at the historic Orlando Stadium on Saturday was his first ever in the PSL since his promotion to the first team from development in September last year.
“It’s an amazing feeling to score my first senior goal and it’s one that I will remember and treasure forever. Every game that I play I wonder if the goal will come then, but now that I’ve scored I’m hopeful that they will keep on coming,” Foster told Bucs’ official website.
“The fact that we drew is not ideal especially after the good momentum that we carried going into this game from our two big wins in a row. I think I would have enjoyed scoring this goal, even more, had we won, but I suppose playing a part in keeping an undefeated start is the next best thing. I’m hoping that when I get my next chance, I can score as part of the winning team. After your first goal, it’s the winning team goals that are best to remember. I will never forget this one though,” the starlet concluded.
In their next Absa Premiership assignment, the Buccaneers will prepare for a trip to the North West for the match against Platinum Stars at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium next Saturday.
