Banyana stars up for Houston awards

Players Abroad

Motlhalo, a hard-working midfielder who has the ability to unlock any defence, has been nominated for two awards, a clear indication why Houston did not hesitate to extend her deal.

She has been nominated for the 2018 Unsung Hero award, as well as the Newcomer of the Year award.

Kgatlana, who was dazzling in her first season with the club, was also nominated for the 2018 Unsung Hero award.

Houston gave their supporters a chance to vote for the winners of each award on their website.

Both players are currently with the national team for the upcoming friendly internationals against Chile. The matches against the South Americans will be used to prepare for the 2019 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations in Ghana in November.
