Supporters Club

A Goodbye From The Cowditor

It fills me with pride to have faithfully served the Supporters Club for the past year. This platform is the unsung hero of local football.

Almost all soccer publications in this country have a section dedicated to the players, breaking news, and even fashion. This is a platform dedicated to you – the supporter. You run it, you decide the content and you have the debates.

It has been an exciting footballing year. Of course, we are all in agreement that South African football is not where it should be, but there have been some moments of magic. Last season's 3-3 draw between Maritzburg United and Orlando Pirates was an absolute humdinger; unfortunately, the death of Mondli Cele (may his soul rest in peace) came soon after.

The Bafana Bafana game against Cameroon, when Bra Hlompho scored the greatest goal I have ever seen in my life... that is one of those footballing moments that will stay with me for the rest of my life. I hear the national anthem playing every time I see Bra Hlompho take the field.

Who could forget the recent bicycle kick scored in extra time by Baroka’s Oscar Masuluke? What about the sensational rise of Percy Tau? The South African future looks bright with that young Simba preparing to roar.

Then, of course, there was Mamelodi Sundowns breaking a 21-year-old curse and being crowned champions of Africa. And who could forget the 6-1 demolition of Orlando Pirates at the hands of Stuart Baxter's SuperSport United? And now we have a team that did not exist four months ago winning trophies – Cape Town City.

So you see, supporters, just like our political country, our football is plagued with problems, of course, but if you focus on the finer things there is much to smile about.

And, as a supporter once told me, our football is "art with a bit of science in it, not a science with a bit of art".

Much love,

Nikolaos Kirkinis
