MBABANE – It works for Young Buffaloes to finish the season – the army side is chasing a possible double with star player Sandile ‘Saviola’ Gamedze standing out for them.

It is no surprise that Gamedze, a talented attacking midfielder for Buffaloes and senior national team, Sihlangu Semnikati, would like to see the currently suspended soccer season in the country play to completion. His team is on the lead in the MTN Premier League by eight points, they are in the quarterfinals of the EswatiniBank Cup and it is mostly his goals that have seen them chase a double.


This is two tickets to the Confederation of African Football (CAF) continental inter-club tournaments, the Confederation Cup (EswatiniBank Cup champions) and Champions League (MTN League champions). He has also been training hard throughout the last three months. “It’s my coach’s programme that I am following and starts from Monday to Friday. I have been training for months now. “I’ve trained in my home ground lamakhaya lasigijimela khona (in the rural areas where we also do athletics). We want to finish the season,” the soft-spoken MTN League leading scorer with 17 goals, two Ingwenyama Cup and two EswatiniBank Cup goals, explained.

However, he would not commit himself to expanding on his view to have the season 2019/20 completed as his club was at the summit. Seven league games remain and eight teams are to fight it out in the EswatiniBank Cup quarters should the season go ahead and finish after August. The Eswatini Football Association (EFA) President, Adam ‘Bomber’ Mthethwa said this past Sunday in their annual general meeting (AGM) that there would be no football up to next month as they continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation.
