Mothogwane is one of the players that were identified as part of the nationwide scouting programme for the Castle Academy camps.
Mothogwane is originally from Mamelodi in Tshwane, where some of South Africa’s football stars like Kaizer Chiefs’ George Lebese, as well as Thulasizwe Mbuyane of Orlando Pirates fame come from.
Mothogwane previously played for Sundowns’ reserves, alongside the likes of Melusi Zulu and Percy Tau.
“If it was not for the Castle Academy I don’t think I would be where I am today. It’s an honour for me because I have always dreamt of playing professional football, and being signed by an NFD side is a step closer to the highest level in the country.
"All I have to do now is keep working hard, stay humble and the rest will happen in time,” Mothogwane said in a press release from the Castle Academy.
According to the release, the right back has been included in Sello Chokoe’s 18-man match day squad for the game against Thanda Royal Zulu this afternoon.
