PSL Issues Deceased Polokwane City Player’s Names

 

The PSL has released the names of the four Polokwane City players who died on Sunday.

The crash occurred on the R71 near Polokwane, as City were returning from their match against FC AK.

A 36-year-old suspect has been arrested for drunken and reckless or negligent driving and he is expected to appear in the Mankweng Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.

The names of the deceased players are Koketso Takalo, Robert Mphuti, Moeketsi Nthete and Silvester Mpaketsane.

Khomotso Sylvester Mpaketsane (13/4/85)

27-year-old striker who joined the club in January 2011 when it was still Bay United and based in Port Elizabeth from Winners Park.

During the last six months of that season he made three starts (with two subs) and scored once. Last season he made seven starts (with 10 subs) and scored twice.

Mojalefa Robert Mphuthi (31/8/91)

21-year-old striker, nicknamed ‘Small’, who joined the club last season after it had moved base from Port Elizabeth to Polokwane. Mphuthi made 26 starts (with two subs) and scored six times last season.

Koketso Isaiah Takalo (15/2/92)

20-year-old left-wing who joined the club last season at the same time as Mphuthi. Takalo, nicknamed ‘Kaiser’ or ‘KK’, made 21 starts (with one sub) and scored once last season.

Benjamin Moeketsi Nthete (22/2/89)

The 23-year-old attacker joined the club this season on loan from Orlando Pirates. They in turn had spotted Nthete, known as ‘Josta’, playing for Soshanguve Sunshine and signed him (and Patrick Mashele – on loan at United FC) soon after the 2012 Second Division National Play-offs held in Polokwane and Seshego.-KickOff Magazine
