Orlando Pirates are set to have a team in the ABC Motsepe League after the club’s youngsters secured promotion to Mzansi’s third tier from the SAB League.
Philani Kubekha’s team secured automatic promotion to Mzansi’s third tier with their 5-0 win over Sandton Super Stars on the weekend.
“A great season in the Gauteng SAB League came to an even better climax at the WJ Clements Stadium in Reiger Park on Saturday, when Orlando Pirates secured promotion to the ABC Motsepe League in emphatic style,” Pirates confirmed on the club’s official website.
“In the early morning fixture, ‘Ezimnyama nge Nkani’ were at their ruthless best, dispatching Sandton Super Stars with a resounding 5-0 win. Grant Peters was among the goals, hitting the back of the net, in between a double brace by the red-hot Zakhele Lepasa and Katlego ‘Kuruman’ Cwinyane.
