19 November 2017 – Machobane FC forward, Senatla Mohale says playing in the SAB League is not just about football but it helps him stay away from all the social ills that are happening in and around his community of Seshego.
Mohale who plays for in the SAFA Capricorn region of the SAB League says he has seen a number of his peers succumb to peer pressure and drugs and by him being involved in the SAB League, it keeps him busy as all he has time to do is play football and focus on his school work.
The 18-year-old recently completed his Matric exams and is confident that he will get good results that will help him qualify to study medicine.
“I want to be a doctor but I don’t want to limit myself to just that. I have realised that football without an educational background is not ideal. You could be at the prime of your career and get a career threatening injury. What will you do then? So it is very important for us young footballers to keep studying and have something to fall back on post our football careers” stressed Mohale.
Machobane FC currently top their stream with 13 points from five matches having won four and drew one.
The SAB League is South Africa’s largest development league in the country with over 30 000 young footballers participating in the league on a weekly basis.
