Ogle leaves Swallows nest


The 29-year-old, who was at Golden Arrows before, played more than 10 games last season including coming from the bench as a substitute for the club.

"We failed to agree terms because the club is in financial trouble due to the lack of a sponsor and I thought it was good for me to leave," Ogle tells KickOff.com.

"It's a big club and they will get a sponsor and don't deserve to be where they are, with financial difficulties.

"I will see what happens next for me and my agent, Tim Sukazi, is busy with other players. I still want to play football and I hope I will find a club anytime soon, you know," adds the Port Edward-born centre-forward.

The Birds, who finished 13th last season, have also released Roger Da Costa, who has found a new club in Mpumalanga Black Aces.

Swallows have also recently sold left-back Levy Mokgothu to Kaizer Chiefs. Ogle feels it is the right move for the player.

"He was working hard as a player and when you are working hard, you  deserve to go elsewhere to carry on growing as a footballer and I tell you now, he will add more competition to Tsepo Masilela in the left-back position. He is very down-to-earth and I wish him all the best in this coming season at Chiefs," Ogle adds.

Ogle joined Golden Arrows in 2012 after leaving Thanda Royal Zulu and was previously at Mpumalanga Black Aces.
