ADMACO says all is well in league

Maseru – The A-Division Management Committee (ADMACO) is pleased with the start to the season in Lesotho’s second tier league, according to its public relations officer Mothusi Letsie.

The first division, which is divided into two streams of ten teams, began on September 11 and has played five rounds of games.

Speaking to thepost on Tuesday, Letsie said when it comes to the administration of games, ADMACO is delighted with how smoothly things have started.

“So far, so good in terms of the administrative side of the games. Things are going well for us,” Letsie declared.

“We have not had any case where a match was not played to the end, and we don’t have any complaints from clubs (with regards to match-fixing).”

In the A-Division’s north stream, Galaxy and Lerotholi Polytechnic lead the log with 11 points after five matches with Galaxy in first place on goal difference.

In the south stream the leaders are Majantja who have collected 13 points from a possible 15. Van Rooyen United follow the Mohale’s Hoek side with 10 points.

After a week off, the first division will resume this weekend with just four match-days left until the end of the first round.

Letsie also explained why grounds that were initially deemed unfit to host A-Division games at the start of campaign have been used for league action. One such ground is Swallows’ home field in Mazenod.

“There were some grounds that we had said will not be used for A-Division games, but it is the (Lesotho Football Association) Club Licensing Committee that oversees the grounds and makes the decision whether a ground meets its standards or not. Some grounds were given a 70 percent mark which means for them to qualify they had to be upgraded,” Letsie said.

He continued: “For example, Swallows’ ground was hard and slippery, they had to lay sand on it to make it playable, which is why there have been games played there. However, the grounds in Butha-Buthe have not passed which is why all the teams from Butha-Buthe are playing their home games at Maputsoe DiFA Stadium.”
