'To Be Above City And Pirates Is Massive'

Stellenbosch FC head coach, Steve Barker was elated with his side’s victory against Orlando Pirates, which took them further up the league standings.

Stellenbosch secured a 1-0 win over Pirates at the Cape Town Stadium at the weekend, which saw the Western Cape outfit climb to ninth place on the league standings, overtaking both the Bucs and their neighbours Cape Town City.

Speaking after the game, Barker explained how monumental the victory was for his side and what it meant for the club as a whole.

“Obviously it was tough, I made a joke with the guys behind me to get the medic ready. We were holding on for the last 15-10 minutes,” he told the media.

“I just knew that a victory against a team like Pirates for a club like us, Stellenbosch, who would have thought that three, four years ago, this club would be playing at Cape Town Stadium and beating a team like Pirates. 

“For us to be beating a team like Pirates it is massive for everyone involved at the club from top, down, the community and the kids. 

“To be above teams like Cape Town City and Pirates in the league after nine matches, it is massive for us but we have to get back to ground after this victory,” he added.
