Litšilo’s big dreams

..Club lifts Nedbank 8 trophy…..

MASERU -After a hard fought 2-1 victory over Lithabaneng Golden in the final of the Nedbank 8 on Sunday, A-Division side Litšilo now have big dreams of winning promotion to the Econet Premier League next season.
Litšilo were crowned inaugural champions of the Nedbank 8, a newly-formed end of season showpiece featuring the top eight sides from the first division campaign, thanks to a backs-to-the-wall win over Golden.
The triumph softened Litšilo’s disappointment of narrowly losing out on top-flight promotion to Lifofane last month and the club’s spokesperson, Ntšekhe Ntšekhe, lauded their achievement of winning the coveted Top 8 tournament and the prize money of M25 000.
Ntšekhe added that the hard work to make their Econet Premier League dream a reality begins now.
He said keeping the players motivated will be key and that will go hand-in-hand with retaining the core of their team.
“The Nedbank 8 Cup is with us and we are glad but it was not only our target this season,” Ntšekhe said.

“Our target is to win promotion and go to the premier league and also to win all the cups (next season). We also want to motivate our players and fans by winning.”
There are yet to be any new signings or departures at the Pitseng club but Ntšekhe said movement will begin soon.
He said Litšilo will need to learn from their mistakes of last season in next year’s quest to win promotion to the Econet Premier League.
At the top of the list, he said, will be to find consistency through the course of the season.
“We have played well from the start of the (past) season but towards the end we made little mistakes that we need to fix so that next season we are in a good place to win the promotion to the premier league,” Ntšekhe said.

In some respects Litšilo were lucky to beat Lithabaneng Golden in Sunday’s Nedbank 8 final. Golden dominated most of the game and launched wave after wave of attacks.
However, Litšilo took their chances and they were delighted afterwards.
“I think the game was very exciting and hot because both teams did their best to win but luckily we won,” Ntšekhe said.
“The coaches were very tactical in the game; we also saw skills from our players which is what we are looking for in our team or in Lesotho at large,” he added.
“Winning the game does not mean Lithabaneng was physically poor, they gave us a tough time and also played well. But we are happy with the way our coach planned for the game because all of our players were able to show their talent in a profitable way. This coming Saturday we will celebrate the Nedbank 8 Cup in Pitseng. The fans and players will welcome their cup.”
