Top football awards set for tomorrow

MASERU – Lesotho Defence Force (LDF) marksman Katleho Makateng, Matlama playmaker Jane Thabantšo and Lesotho Correctional Service (LCS) hitman Makara Ntaitsane will vie for the prestigious Vodacom Premier League player of the season award tomorrow night.

The trio were revealed as the headline nominees this week as the Vodacom Premier League finally announced the end of the season awards to be held at Avani Maseru.

The annual awards ceremony is usually held immediately at the end of the season but the Premier League Management Committee (PLMC) said they struggled to secure a venue which caused the delay.

With a location now secured, the league will finally reward the individuals that impressed last season and it comes as no surprise that newly-crowned champions Matlama lead the nominations with seven nominees across the board.

In total there are 10 categories up for grabs, including the referee and assistant referee of the season. Some categories already have obvious winners such as the top scorer award which will go to Makateng who topped the league’s scoring charts with an impressive 20 goals.

Other categories, however, are wide open with Matlama coach Mothobi Molebatsi battling it out with Motheo Mohapi of LDF and LCS’s Shalane Lehohla for the coach of the season crown.

In the midfielder of the season category, meanwhile, LDF’s Tšepo Toloane is sandwiched between two Matlama stars – Thabantšo and Lisema Lebokollane. All eyes, however, will be on the night’s biggest award which will see a first-time winner from one of Makateng, Thabantšo or Ntaitsane.

Makateng, who joined the LDF in January 2021 from first division outfit Litšilo, impressed for both club and country in his maiden Vodacom Premier League campaign and he could walk away as the big winner tomorrow night.
