Highlands Park failed to qualify for the provincial playoffs after being outclassed and dispositioned by Vaal Professionals FC, who drew 1-1 against Dube Continental in their last fixture to reclaim Stream B top spot in the Gauteng ABC Motsepe League.
At the beginning of the 2020/21 season, the Lions of the North were a team to beat, with the first round of fixtures getting all maximum points and the tables turned when they started losing to lowly positioned teams in the likes of Maholosiane.
This leaves them on position two with 30 points after their 2-1 win against NWU Vaal side although narrowly missing out on the 1st position with one point.
It is with great disbelief that the boys left it until the end and failing to qualify.
The team might be shattered but they have learnt from their mistakes and ready to move forward and build up for the next season.
“Losses turned into lessons” said the club on their social media page.
