Bullock praises invincible LDF
- as the army side bags another gong
THE Lesotho Defence Force (LDF) ladies football team on Sunday cruised to glory trouncing rivals Kick4Life 3-0 in the Woman Super League Top4 final in Maputsoe.
The army side added another cup to their already laden trophy cabinet by winning the Top4 for the second year in a row.
Women Super League chairperson Chris Bullock praised for the Samba Ladies for finishing the season with a 100 percent winning record and without conceding a goal.
“LDF have had an exceptional campaign this season and should be congratulated for their performance,” Bullock said.
“To win all league games and the Top4 without even conceding a goal shows their high level of competitiveness.”
The Kick4Life football director also added that as much as the LDF team is new in the league, they have adopted Likhosatsana which is excelling under new management.
“Obviously when LDF was formed, they took over Likhosatsana, who were already one of the top teams with quality players. However, since then, they have taken the team on to another level through good management and organisation. The technical team has also done well,” he said.
Bullock said they are also working to improve the status of the other teams in the Women Super League so that the gap between LDF and others is reduced.
He said other teams are already improving and the transition is promising.
“I think some teams are already improving and are developing good young players who will help them grow in the long term. Stoko, who finished second, played with a lot of young players this season and still showed that they can compete at the top and compete with teams like LDF and they will only improve with time.
“We have other teams like Kick4Life and Mafeteng Sistas, who are looking to develop younger players so that will help them grow their teams.
“Rovers and Mafeteng also improved in the second round and that shows that if teams train regularly and keep developing players, then they can grow.
“We are also looking to assist as the Super League Management along with the Lesotho Football Association (LeFA) by holding more technical seminars for teams and assist the teams with technical advice as well as involving WSL coaches with coaching education. I believe this will help our teams and our players improve,” Bullock said.
