“Kaizer Chiefs star midfielder Siphelele Ntshangase, Polokwane City’s Edgar ‘Stiga’ Manaka and TTM’s Khunadi Nkoana were among those on the sidelines when T-Boss FC from Seshego were crowned Bloodriver Annual Spring Soccer Tournament (BASST) champions on Heritage Day,” read the statement from tournament organisers.

“T-Boss FC beat Mabotja Tiger FC 5-4 on penalties in the final to mark the end of an intriguing inaugural tournament featuring 16 clubs and played over two weekends from 16-24 September.

It is tournaments like these through which raw talent is unearthed and future stars are born, and the professional trio of Ntshangase, Manaka and Nkoana must have been pleased with some of the performances they saw which wowed and awed spectators,” the statement read.
