The ABC Motsepe League outfit took Chiefs all the way to extra-time, where the latter managed to score three goals and advance to the quarter-finals of the Nedbank Cup.

Dearnaley insisted that he was proud of his boys who held Amakhosi scoreless during regulation time,

“I’m so proud, it’s unbelievable, to hold Kaizer Chiefs until 105 minutes. Just tired legs in the end, I don’t think the scoreline does justice to us. But I think Chiefs were worthy winners, fantastic team, I wish them the best in the future,” Dearnaley told SuperSport TV .

“We worked hard, we had a balance of some young guys and experience they deserved this opportunity. 3-0 maybe isn’t a true reflection of the game but at the end to score three goals in extra time against an amateur team I think we’ll get a lot of credit from this. Hopefully this is not the end for us, it is just a start,” he continued.

“People must understand that we play our home games in front of a 100 people. We play on municipal fields. To play on a World Cup Stadium against the biggest team in the country, of course there is pressure. Some players it affected them but I thought overall they were amazing. They were magic!” he said.
