Security Systems have qualified for the next edition of the CAF Confederation Cup after reaching the final of the Orange FA Cup on Saturday afternoon. Systems came from a goal down to beat BDF XI 2-1 in a highly contested semi-final played at the National Stadium.

They will play their first ever continental competition after league champions, Gaborone United beat Matebele in the other semifinal. Since GU have already qualified for the CAF Champions League after winning the league championship, Systems will take the CAF Confederation Cup spot regardless of the outcome of the final match scheduled for Saturday. Speaking after the match, Systems’ coach, Kaelo ‘Wire’ Kaelo said it was not an easy task as they had to wait for two weeks with no action for the Orange FA Cup semi-final tie. “I am employed by footballers and I am working for people who are affiliated to footballers. That question I will not answer because if I critic the situation I may be seen not to be in good line.

But it was not easy because all the teams in exception of the four in the semi finals have closed for the season. I could not ask GU for a friendly; I could not ask BDF for a friendly either. It was a difficult game.
