Mntambo And Seema Win Monthly Awards

Sekhukhune United’s record-breaking season has seen their captain Linda Mntambo and coach Lehlohololo Seema Win Player and Coach of The Month awards.  

Babina Noko has conjured up incredible results, winning five games between February and March, leaping them to be in the middle of the fight for those CAF club competition spots for next season.  

However, they could not maintain this record start, drawing the last two matches against Cape Town City and Stellenbosch FC respectively.  

But they had already done impressive work to be recognized for these awards, currently lying fourth on the log table with 35 points after 22 matches.  

“Sekhukhune United have been rewarded for a perfect run as coach Lehlohonolo Seema and Linda Mntambo picked up the DStv Premiership monthly awards for player and coach in February/March 2024,” said the PSL statement.  

“Seema, who wins his first DStv Premiership Coach of the Month award has seen Sekhukhune impressively continue to climb up the log standings over the past two months.  

“Having only joined Sekhukhune in November, he has overseen a remarkable February/March period with his side winning five out of five matches, scoring 11 goals and only conceding thrice.  

“He received huge praise from the judging panel for the way he has got Ba Bina Noko to play an exciting, free-flowing style of football as they beat Richards Bay, Golden Arrows, Royal AM, Moroka Swallows, and Orlando Pirates. 

“DStv Premiership Player of the Month winner, Mntambo, who has missed most of the season owing to injuries, marked his return to action with a consistent run of influential performances by scoring three goals and providing two assists, in crucial victories for his side, earning his first monthly individual award in the league. 

“This is the first time in the history of the awards that a coach or player from Sekhukhune United won an award.”
