Winnie Mandela, Zitikeni and Thuto ke Matla secondary schools were handed out soccer kits, balls and netball uniforms by The Lions of the North players and management.

“The schools were very happy to receive the equipment, I just want to say I was happy and honoured to be part of the players who handed out the kits to the schools. We have to thank the team and all the stakeholders for such an initiative,” said Moriri.

Having done something positive to the community, the former Mamelodi Sundowns player touched on the pitch side of things at the club, where they didn’t start so well in the first round of the season, saying it is vital for the team to make sure they start winning games so that they can survive the relegation chop.

“We are number 15 on the log, which is a position we don’t want to see ourselves in when the season is over,” Moriri added.

“It is going to be a very entertaining second half of the season because everyone will have something to fight for. Teams will be fighting for the championship title, while other will be trying to get to the top and others will be looking to survive relegation. So, I am anticipating a very interesting second half of the season.”
