“Sometimes Being A Woman In A Man’s Territory Is Difficult,” Shauwn Mkhize On Her Road To The Premier Soccer League. Congratulations are in order for Royal AM football. The team defeated Sekhukhune United to claim the GladAfrica Championship. The win automatically gained them access to the DSTV Premier Soccer League (PSL), which is music to Shauwn Mkhize‘s ears.
The Durban businesswoman and reality television star bought Royal AM FC, for her son Andile Mpisane, back in 2020. This made the then, 19-year-old Andile, become the youngest club owner in PSL football history. In 2018 he was registered as a Royal Eagles player and the purchase, means that he was now a player as well as a chairman of his own club. Talk about some epic generational wealth goals!
Their victory wasn’t easy though. Their arch-rivals Sekhukhune was rewarded three points after winning their case against Polokwane City, who were found guilty by the Disciplinary Committee for failing to failed the correct number of U-23 players. This caused the crowning of the soccer team which won to be halted until matters were resolved. The matter was resolved i the field on Sunday when Royal AM defeated Sekhukhune.
“Last night we made history!! The royal chair is ours!! What was undoubtedly a nail biting match resulted in us remaining on top of the log. But I never thought winning the leque will be this painful sometimes being a woman in a mans territory is difficult but ANGIPHELI MANDLA ??????
