Coach Oupa Kowa has pledged his future to Holy Ghost after leading the team to their maiden Premier League promotion. Kowa joined Holy Ghost halfway through the league campaign after he was released by Notwane. He led the team to elite league promotion in a nervy title race against Mochudi Centre Chiefs and Black Forest.

Kowa’s side entered the final day of the season games tied on 42 points with Chiefs but the Holy Boys sealed the championship with a 3-1 win over Taung Young Strikers. It is the team’s first ever elite league promotion and the coach’s initial agreement with the club has come to an end.

Speaking to Mmegi Sport, Kowa said he is keen to stay on and elevate the Holy Ghost project to the highest level of league football in the country. “Look for me, it’s a project that has to go on but for me, I am a coach. I think you understand what I mean when I say I am a coach. It simply means that I want to stay; this is a project that can be carried forward and of course with certain changes. You know club licensing compliance has to come into play now and a lot of things have to change,” he said. Kowa has seemingly enjoyed his time at the foot of the Mmopane hill as he credited the club’s management for the recent piece of history.
