Lesotho skipper opens up on her move to Sundowns Ladies


Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies newly-signed star Boitumelo Rabale has expressed her excitement after joining the side on a two-year deal.

The 24-year-old was unveiled by the club last Friday ahead of their Safa National Women’s League (SNWL) opening fixture against Golden Ladies FC at Groenkloof Stadium over the weekend.

The Game ended with a 4-0 scoreline in favour of Sundowns Ladies.

‘Queen’, as she’s popularly known, makes her return to the SNWL after a successful stint in the United States of America, where she was named the 2020 Junior College-All American National Women’s Player of the Year after her exploits with Clark and Community College.

“I’m very happy to have joined Sundowns, I have been waiting for this opportunity for a long time,” said the Lesotho women’s team captain.

“I have already started training with the team and the reception has been very good. Everyone was very good and welcoming.”

The former Bloemfontein Celtic skipper’s big move to Sundowns Ladies has also been given a blessing by the Lesotho Football Association (LeFA) President, Advocate Salemane Phafane.

“We are delighted as LeFA with the developments in Rabale’s career as the captain of our Women’s Senior National team. She has been a good ambassador for Women’s football in the country and we wish her success in her new journey with Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies,” said the LeFA President.

Rabale stated that having some of her former teammates at the Tshwane-based outfit has put her at ease.

“Having two of my former teammates from Celtic also made the process a bit easier for me and I’m looking forward to a successful journey with the club,” concludes Rabale.
