William 'Raizor' Monene is looking to make the coveted DTCB Women's Championship his own as he guns for a consecutive title this weekend.

Raizor led Double Action to the championship triumphs in 2022 and 2023. The coach, who has over the years evolved into a prominent figure in youth and women's football, crossed over from Double Action to Gaborone United (GU) recently. Monene joined the Reds Ladies after the completion of the Gaborone City Region Division One where he finished second to his new side with Double Action. He had his coaching debut in red a fortnight ago during the DTCB Women's Championship South Block playoffs. GU had a seamless run under Monene over the past two weekends as they won the playoffs to secure a place in the DTCB Women's Championship Top 4.

The Reds averaged six goals per match as they scored 18 in just three games and did not concede. GU will look to make it past their tournament's best run after they lost in the final to Double Action in 2023. The team joins Top 4 debutants Tawana Top Girls, Makgabz City, and Granada FC. The latter is the most experienced side of the quartet as they make their third appearance in as many DTCB Women's Championship finals. A new champion will emerge over the weekend in the absence of two-time reigning champions, Double Action. In the Top 4 draw held on Wednesday at Lekidi Centre, GU take on Makgabz City while Tawana Top Girls face Granada FC in the other semi-final. The semi-finals will be played at the Lekidi grounds this afternoon (Friday) with the kickoff times set at 3pm. The third place match will be played at noon Saturday while the tournament decider is scheduled for 4pm.

Their deep cuts and untimely demise have left a scar on the...
