NFD TROPHY HANDOVER

The Premier Soccer League has announced that the they will hand over the National First Division (NFD) trophy on the last day of the 2017/18 NFD season. This is in line with the League’s standing practice of handing over trophies on the last day of the season. 

NFD 2017/18 - WEEK 25 PREVIEW

UTHONGATHI FC vs SUPER EAGLES

Massive match for both two teams who come off important wins in their last encounters. It is also a repeat of the ABC Motsepe League final that was won by Uthongathi at the end of last season. The two teams are level on points, separated only by goals difference and are the two teams just above the relegation zone. A win for either team would be huge, while a draw could put more pressure on both sides. Super Eagles beat the KZN side 2 – 0 in Round 4.

WITBANK SPURS v MTHATHA BUCKS

UTHONGATHI FC PARTS WAY WITH GABRIEL

The man who took Uthongathi FC to the ABC Motsepe League title and R1m in prize money has been released from the KZN club. Ronniie Gabriel becomes the 14th coach this season to be relieved of his duties. The move from Uthongathi FC comes after a 2 - 0 loss at the hands of Witbank Spurs over the past weekend, but is probably a culmination of the club winning just one match in their last ten and dropping to 13th position, but just one point clear of the relegation zone. 

COMPETITION STRONG FOR NFD GOLDEN BOOT

With the halfway mark of the season quickly approaching. the competition to be crowned the NFD's top goal scorer is hotting up with four players leading the charge on 6 goals each.  Last season was a bit of a runaway for Sedwyn George from Royal Eagles with 20 goals and Mhlengi Cele from Thanda Royal Zulu close behind with 19. Veteran Nomvethe wasn't far off the mark with 17 goals for Amazulu. 

This is how matters stand after Round 14 of the current season.
