Goal-scoring form: Sesinyi. PIC KILLERPASS

It has been an elusive feat since 2017 but Jwaneng Galaxy’s forward, Thabang 'Gaucho' Sesinyi has breached the 20-goals per season mark.

On Wednesday, Sesinyi scored his 20th league goal this campaign when he converted from the spot in Galaxy’s 2-0 win over Mogoditshane Fighters. The goal has taken Sesinyi’s tally to 20 goals, becoming the first player to do so since the 2016–2017 season. Gaborone United’s (GU) forward, Thatayaone Kgamanyane was the last player to reach the 20-goal mark four seasons ago and he went to bag the top goal scorer’s award.

Sesinyi is now five goals away from breaking the highest league goals ever scored by a local. The record remains 25 goals set by Joel Mogorosi and Kekaetswe Moloi almost a decade ago whilst Terrence Mandaza’s 31 goals in one season remain out of reach with just three rounds of league football to be played. Sesinyi is now the most prolific local striker and should be among the first names when interim Zebras coach, Mogomotsi 'Teenage' Mpote announces his squad today. He is now two goals ahead of his closest rival, Kgamanyane in the race for the golden boot award while Extension Gunners’ Kabelo Babusi and Thero Setsile of GU follow behind with 15 and 14 goals respectively.

One of the biggest challenges that we face as a nation is that we...
