WOMEN Super League (WSL) chairperson Chris Bullock says the level of competition in the league has improved immensely.
Following the promotion of Limkokwing University and Thaba-Tseka Ladies at the start of this season, WSL teams have increased from eight to 10.
After the fourth round of the matches, defending champions LDF are still ruling the roost sitting at the summit of the league with 12 points after winning four matches.
In second is LDF’s rivals Kick4Life who have also enjoyed a great run winning all their first four matches. The Samba Ladies, as LDF Ladies are affectionately known, only have a superior 18 goals as opposed to Kick4Life’s 14.
Newcomers Thaba-Tseka and Limkokwing are yet to register their first wins and are both sitting on ninth and 10th respectively after losing all their matches.
Bullock told the Lesotho Times on Monday that they were impressed with the level of competition this season as the teams have shown great improvement.
“The teams continue to improve and have become more competitive,” Bullock said.
“Rovers have continued their improvement from the second half of last season and started well while Sky Battalion has also improved. All the matches are now more competitive and hopefully, the trend will continue throughout the season,” Bullock said.
LDF have continued from where they left off last season where they won all their matches and did not concede a single goal.
However, Bullock, who is also the director of football at Kick4Life, said it still too early to say which team would be crowned champions.
“I think it’s too early to talk about who is likely to win but they (LDF) do look strong again. However, all teams have upped their game.”
Bullock also said although the newcomers were yet to register wins, they have also been impressive.
“The competition is tight because every team has shown that they have what it takes to cause upsets. Even the new teams who need time to settle in have shown that they deserve to play at this level and as they improve, they will compete well,” Bullock concluded.
