CCX, All Aces in merger

CCX, All Aces in merger

MASERU-Newly promoted Premier League upstarts CCX have partnered with B Division outfit All Aces.

As part of the deal, the teams will share a sponsorship by Mdlokovana Transport which until now sponsored All Aces.
The partnership will transverse two districts as CCX are based in Hlotse and All Aces from Mohale’s Hoek.

The merger was revealed on Monday by the clubs at the Anglican Centre and is a boost for CCX ahead of their maiden top-flight campaign. CCX is a school and their players are students.
The partnership with Aces allows CCX to sign some of Aces’ best players in order to bolster their squad as they face the daunting task of competing in the elite league for the first time in the club’s young history.

With school examinations on the way, CCX would likely have been short of players to play in the league.
However, the partnership will allow CCX to beef up their playing staff.
The clubs signed a memorandum of understanding and are set to play each other this weekend as CCX continues to scout more talent in the Aces team.
Aces, who have a long-standing relationship with Mdlokovana Transport, have also announced they will help CCX with their transport expenses and other needs. In turn, Aces will see their players go to school in Leribe where CCX is based.

CCX’s president Thetsane Moholi said when they started the club in 2010, they had a 10-year dream of winning promotion to the Premier League.
He said CCX finally achieved the dream in their 10th year when they clinched promotion after the 2019/20 season was cut short by the coronavirus pandemic.

However, the work will only get tougher. Being in the Premier League means CCX have to strengthen their team in order to compete.
“I am so happy with this partnership, every player in our team adds value and this partnership will add value to us as well,” Moholi said.

“We are a school team and we have been running this team with little football knowledge but we now have Ntate Maponyane Letsie who has helped us a lot,” he said.
Aces is said to boast a big support base in Mohale’s Hoek and CCX say when supporters are allowed to attend games Aces fans will have a chance to attend their Premier League games and enjoy with them.

Letsie, who is CCX’s chief executive officer, said they have already identified four players from Aces they would like to sign but the weekend’s game gives them an opportunity to scout for more.

The players that have already been registered as Aces players for this season will likely move to CCX in the January window period.
Aces chairman Lethusang Tšekalle said they are happy to finally have a partner. He said they hope it can spur them to win their own promotion from the B Division to A Division.
