Swallows fly back into the Premier Division


Swallows marked their return to the Absa Premiership after a five-year absence, following a convincing 3-0 win against Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila at Makhulong Stadium on Sunday.

A brace from Kagiso Malinga and a goal from Given Thibedi gave the ‘Dube Birds’ a one superior goal difference compared to fellow title-chasers Ajax Cape Town, who also managed a 3-0 win against Mbombela United.

Both teams finished on 57 points.

Ajax Cape Town and Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM) will compete in the Promotion play-offs.

Swallows got relegated from the Premier Division for the first time in their history in 2015 and again from the National First Division in 2016.
