Nomvethe steals the show at PSL awards

28May

With the PSL awards taking place over the weekend. Bidvest Wits may have not been too involved in taking away PSL awards but where hoping for the Absa Premiership Red Hot Young Player of the Season – R50 000 to go to Lehlogonolo Masalesa, unfortunately Masalesa wasn’t able to claim the 50K. How ever young Super Sport United shot stopper Ronwen Williams was a deserved winner of the award.

The ever-green Siyabonga Nomvethe stole the show at Sunday night’s Premier Soccer League End of the season awards.

Nomvethe was the big winner on the evening scooping the coveted PSL Footballer of the Year Award alongside the Absa Premiership Player of the Season, Absa Premiership Players Player of the Season and the Absa Premiership Top Goal Scorer Award.

Nomvethe finished as the League’s top goalscorer with 20 goals. He inspired Moroka Swallows to a tenacious Absa Premiership title chase which they ultimately lost on the last day to Orlando Pirates.

He was honoured together with a host of other outstanding individuals in Johannesburg during the PSL Awards.

“We salute all our players this evening,” said PSL CEO, Stan Matthews.

“It’s been a tough season and we need to recognize the achievements of the players and the PSL Awards does just that.”
