Modimolle teams Celtic FC and Bussel FC managed to turn their fortunes around, against the backdrop of light drizzles which poured down last Saturday, 24 February. 

Celtic FC, which played a total 13 matches, drew 6 and lost 6, claimed its first three points of the season when they defeated visitors Bela Bela Pirates FC 2-0 at Modimolle’s Tankeng Grounds.

Modimolle Celtic head coach, André Mavulula, told The BEAT there was light at the end of the tunnel, with the team planning to work even harder to avoid relegation.

The Modimolle team will on Saturday, 3 March, welcome Mookgophong Junior Stars FC. 

At the same venue later that day, Bussel FC claimed maximum points after their 4-2 victory over Boys 2 Men FC of Vaalwater. 

This massive victory took Bussel FC from seventh to fifth position on the log standings. 

The next league fixture for this Modimolle team will be on Saturday, 10 March when they host Opleft United FC.

Bussel FC’s assistant coach Brian Nkuna said the result was a true reflection of the hard work and determination put in by both the management and players during the preparations ahead of the match.

“We had ample time to prepare for this match, and the best part of it is that the players adhered to our game plan. At the end of the day, we achieved a desired result,” he said. 

Boys 2 Men FC captain Isaac Bjalwane cited the poor fitness of the team as the reason for their loss.      

“Our midweek preparations were hindered by the rains which poured down during the week. We accept the result and put our focus on the next match,” he said.

The team will travel to Modimolle to do battle with Modimolle Troublemakers, while in Rapotokwane, Qualitho FC was expected to welcome Diesel n Dust FC of Bela Bela.
