With the transfer window expected to gather pace in the next few weeks, several key player find themselves searching for new teams. The big names are currently unattached after their clubs did not renew their contracts.
Amongst some of the players who are free is former Zebras marksman, Jerome Ramatlhakwana. Ramatlhakwana joined Gaborone United (GU) midway through last season from Orapa United and helped GU reach the final of the Mascom Top 8. GU however, have since not extended his stay at the club as they look to rebuild and challenge for more honours next season. His stay at Orapa United was also not long as he faced competition upfront against Omaatla Kebatho.
Another player currently searching for a new home is Michael Pepukani. He is regarded as one of the finest goalkeepers in the country. Pepukani and Boitumelo Modisaotsile were in a surprise move released by Notwane recently. The duo was instrumental in helping Notwane gain promotion.
At Township Rollers, striker Joel Mogorosi is expected to sign a new contract following yet another good season. Other players whose contracts come to an end include Segolame Boy and Ofentse Nato who have already extended their stay despite interests from other clubs.
Orapa United have also moved swiftly to renew contracts of key players including Tapiwa Nyamanjiva, Mooketsi Hlabano, Kobamelo Kebaikanye and Kealeboga Molebatsi. Gaborone sides were reportedly looking to sign Kebaikanye who played for Rollers in the past.
