In-Demand Star Wins Big Gong At PSL Club Awards

Highlands Park held their awards ceremony for top-performing players for the 2019/20 Premier Soccer League campaign.

The big winner on the night was evergreen midfielder Lindokuhle Mbatha, who was named Player of the Year. It was yet another achievement for the 34-year-old after he received the Chairman’s award last season.

The scintillating performances dished out by the former Mamelodi Sun­downs winger this season have not gone unnoticed, and as previously reported by the Siya crew, Mbatha has attracted the interest of both Golden Arrows and Amazulu, although he still has a year left to run on his contract with Highlands.

Meanwhile, his partner in crime Peter Shalulile walked away with the Golden Boot gong after scoring 19 goals in all competitions for the Lions of the North this past campaign. 

The Namibian also shares the Lesley Manyathela Golden Boot award with Orlando Pirates’ Gabadinho Mhango, both stars finishing on 16 goals in the Absa Premiership.

The Players' Player of the Year award was given to departing striker Peter Shalulile, who had a fantastic season with the club. Shalulile managed to catch the eye of a certain Pitso Mosimane, who wasted no time in securing his services for Mamelodi Sundowns ahead of the new season.

Pirates' New Signing: From R900k to R19M

Given Msimango was named the Young Player of the Season and club talisman Mothobi Mvala was awarded the Chairman's award.
