THE NEDBANK CUP: WE INTRODUCE BOYNE TIGERS

Prayer Warriors…SAFA-Limpopo’s ABC Motsepe League side, Boyne Tigers who have been pitted against BidVest Wits in the last 32 of the Nedbank Cup.

JANUARY 23 marks the official kick-off of the 2018/19 Nedbank Cup, and Limpopo is well represented with five clubs in the competition.
One such club is Boyne Tigers who are campaigning in the country’ SAFA-Limpopo 2nd Division League (the ABC Motsepe League).
Although the club might not be a familiar name to many South Africans but they are a side with a rich history that dates back to the 1960s and have produced some notable star names.
These include current Orlando Pirates striker Thabiso Kutumela and club captain Thabo Mokgalushi, who previously played for Jomo Cosmos and has featured in the Nedbank Cup on a number of occasions.
The side (currently 10th on the log with three league matches at hand) hails from MacLean Farm in the Boyne area of Limpopo and they belong to the country’s biggest church, the St. Engenas’ Zion Christian Church (ZCC), hence the club name, which is a 45-minute drive from Polokwane.
Tigers who have been since pitted against the Absa Premiership’s log leaders, BidVest Wits in the last 32 of the Nedbank Cup is coached by Goodwill Matsemela and despite their long history have only been playing officially in the league since 2007.
Tigers who play their homes matches at the church-yard stadium draw largely on players from the local area, and have a development team with a local high school that provides a pool of young talent, though as Matsemela points out, many promising stars are lost to the side when they go off for tertiary studies.
