A proposed date for the resumption of the South African Premier League (PSL), which is followed by many Namibians, has not been announced yet.
However, the South African department of sports has given the green light for the completion of the 2019/20 season with the implementation of the proposed safety protocols that will be monitored by members of government at all 16 clubs when they get back to training.
Good news at last
This is exciting news for Brave Warriors players such as no-nonsense defender Riaan !Hanamub, who plays for Jomo Cosmos, a club in the National First Division (NFD).
!Hanamub, who was out on injury for close to three months when the Covid-19 pandemic hit, said he wants to get down to business as soon as possible.
His club is languishing in 15th spot on the NFD log with 22 points, followed at the bottom by the Royal Eagles with 18 points. Ajax Cape Town lead the log with 48 points, followed in second by Shallows (41) and Uthongathi in third with 40 points.
Players in the NFD
Players such as Edward Maova (Royal Eagles), Joslin Kamatuka (Cape Umoya), Wesley Katjiteo, Charles Hambira (TS Sporting), and Virgil Vries (Moroka Swallows) feature for the NFD.
