Sasol Banyana Banyana are currently holding a four day training camp at the Bedfordview Football Club grounds as part of preparations for the 2014 CAF African Women’s Championships that will be held in Namibia in October this year.
Nicknamed ‘Microphone’, Seoposenwe, who previously played for the University of the Western Cape in the Cape Town division of the Sasol Women’s League, joined Stamford University in the United States at the beginning of this year on a four-year scholarship, pursuing an undergraduate Degree in Business Studies.
The 2010 Under-17 SAFA player of the year suffered a knee injury in April this year and had not been part of Coach Vera Pauw’s selection since she took over as Banyana Banyana mentor.
“My injury happened just when Coach Vera took over, it was heart breaking for me because I missed out on a chance to be in the first camp she had. I see this as a blessing, to be given another chance to show her what I am capable of. I would love to be part of the squad that represents South Africa at the African Women’s Championship,” she concluded.
Sasol Banyana Banyana will be going on a tour of West Africa scheduled for early July. Pauw believes the tour is vital ahead of the preparations for the African Women’s Championships.
“The West Africa tour will test our readiness for the African women’s Championships and the amount of work we have done in the past 2 months. It will also be a chance for us to play against stronger opponents,” said Pauw.
Sasol Banyana Banyana are scheduled to play against the School of Excellence Under-16 team in a training match this afternoon.
