Following in the footsteps of Bayanda Sobetwa come two more South African footballers.
Johnviss Tshoboko Moagi, 20, of Johannesburg, and Khayalethu Sikiti, 25, of Cape Town, have signed with South Launceston for the upcoming 2011 Tasmanian State League. Although a bit behind the SANFL, VFL and WAFL, the TSL is still a very high standard and will be a great test for these young men. So too will the chilly Tassie weather.
Both players were named in the Lions' elite development squads back in late 2009. Moagi is described as a midfielder with pace and stamina and Sikiti a tall forward with an exceptional vertical leap and long reach. For more read Footballers out of Africa in Tasmania's The Mercury.
