‘Stellies’ MDC captain Hanslo pleased with top 8 finish


Stellenbosch FC Multichoice Diski Challenge (MDC) captain Tristan Hanslo is satisfied with the progress made by his side in the second half of the season as they managed to secure a top eight finish.

The Diski Challenge also known as the Premier Soccer League (PSL) reserve League has been discontinued – cancelled by the PSL with immediate effect due to the coronavirus pandemic with most teams left with two rounds of fixtures to conclude the season.

“I think our MDC season started a bit rough but definitely progressed tremendously. We found ourselves in an unbeaten run at our home ground and ending the season in the top 8,” said Hanslo.

Stellies’ finished the season in seventh position with 41 points in 27 games and 11 wins. “Yeah, it’s a pity we couldn’t conclude the final games due to the Covid-19 pandemic, he admitted. Picture courtesy of Stellenbosch FC.

“However, at this trying time, I think it’s important that we put the livelihoods of the players first and that’s precisely what the League did. Stay safe and stay at home, we will get back to football when it’s safe to do so,” said the 20-year-old captain who won the 2019/19 National First Division (NFD) with Stellenbosch.

Hanslo is using the nationwide lockdown period to connect with his family and work on his clothing brand.

“Lockdown has been a sort of pre-season for me. I’ve been working out and still training as hard as I did before the Lockdown.

“It has given me a lot of free time to work on my clothing brand, brainstorming new ideas for SporadicSA, etc and definitely given me some time to get to know my family better,” he concluded.
