With just a few days in the 2020/21 ABC Motsepe League season, the newly promoted Highlands Park are the Gauteng ABC Motsepe League representative in the Nedbank Cup qualifiers.
From what was a rocky start to later securing a spot in the qualifiers, the Lions of the North have shown great resilience and dedication to cementing their place as far as quality football is concerned.
The Lions secured a 1-0 slender win against Orange Vaal Professionals FC in the semi-finals and went on to beat African All Stars 1-0 in an emotional yet paced final played at the Balfour Alexandra Football Club, yesterday.
The Johannesburg-born sharpshooter, Emilio Da Costa Abreu was the hero of the day as he was on target on both games for Highlands Park.
The new boys on the block remain hopeful as they are left with just one game against the Gauteng SAB representative to secure their spot in the Nedbank Cup last 32.
Details of the qualifier will be made available in due course.
