Moment of silence for Matete, Ntepane

Published

MASERU – Vodacom Premier League clubs and all the leagues under the auspices of the Lesotho Football Association (LEFA) will observe a moment of silence for the late Seephephe Matete and Salang Ntepane.

Some league fixtures last weekend paid their respects to Ntepane before the matches by bowing their heads in silence for a moment.

Ntepane was a referee and he died last week after an illness.

Mochini, as Matete was affectionately known in Lesotho football, died on Sunday after an illness. Condolences have been coming in from all corners as clubs and players have been paying their respects to the former Likuena coach.

Matete was one of the longest serving members of Lesotho’s football fraternity and his death has come as a shock.

Former Likuena coach Thabo Senong, who is now back in his home country, South Africa, also joined the masses in remembering the fallen giant.

LEFA said it remembers Matete and Ntepane for their service and contribution to football.

One of the big Vodacom Premier League matches this weekend will see Lesotho Correctional Service (LCS) take on Linare at the LCS Ground.

Linare may still be on honeymoon with their new coach Leslie Notši as they find themselves flying high in third place, however, their record against ‘Masheshena’ is quite concerning.

They have played each other 11 times since 2014 and LCS has the upper-hand winning the fixture seven times. Linare has won twice and two matches have ended in draws.

LCS are hoping to pile more pressure on the log leaders Bantu and keep their title aspirations alive with a win over Linare.
