Disang vows to carry on Top 8 momentum


The National Women's Football Committee chairperson, Itsholeng Disang has said they will try to strengthen their structures following a successful DTCB Women’s Top 8 championship held last weekend.

Double Action were crowned champions after a thrilling 4-2 victory over Mexican Girls in the final played on Sunday. The action-packed tournament, which consisted of the best eight teams from each region started on Friday with the group stages.

We need to strengthen our structures in regions so that we are in a position to run our football very well. We also need to start planning early so that we do not leave some aspects out,” Disang said.
