Williams hails former academy teammates


SuperSport United and Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Ronwen Williams has praised his former academy teammates for the sacrifices they have made at the young age, and they are now reaping the fruits of hard work.

This comes after the Tshwane-based outfit skipper shared some moments with his former academy teammates at the recent Bafana Bafana camp.

The former Matsatsantsa academy graduates who were present at the national team’s camp consisted of Kamohelo Mokotjo, Kermit Erasmus, Lyle Lakay and Teboho Mokoena.

“It’s the best feeling, seeing how far we have come. We all sacrificed so much leaving home at such a young age to follow our dreams,” Williams told the club’s official website.

The club also put on record that some of these academy graduates have been groomed by coach Godfrey Mosoetsa and coach Kwanele Kopo, who is currently an assistant to the Bafana head coach Molefi Ntseki.

“We all have a very good relationship and keep in regular contact. It’s also so inspiring to see our youth coach getting recognition (Kwanele Kopo), he deserves it,” said the SuperSport United captain.

The Bafana Bafana international has proven his competency between the sticks and has successively gained the trust of his national team’s mentor, Molefi Ntseki.

Williams featured in all two games of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers against Sao Tome and Principe in Johannesburg and Durban respectively.
