Hunt - 'We deserve our award'


Moroka Swallows coach Gavin Hunt was a happy man after his team won the 'Perfectly Balanced Team' Award during the Premier Soccer League End-of-Season Awards ceremony, which took place in Johannesburg earlier this week.

"I am very happy that we finally received some sort of recognition for our hard work," Hunt told his club's official website.

He added: "I personally believe that we deserve this award considering the trying conditions we worked under, but we managed to clinch the fourth spot on the log."

The 'Beautiful Birds' were plagued by injuries throughout the season and had to play without a home ground for some time as well.

"We remained positive despite all of this. We continued with our job and we never complained," added Hunt.

The Swallows mentor also congratulated striker Mame Niang for winning the Lesley Manyathela Award (the Premiership's top goal-scorer award).

"Mame should have been a clear favorite because I believe he could have scored more goals than the fourteen he scored," said Hunt.

"Next season, I expect him to score 25 goals," Hunt added.

Hunt also urged the 'Birds' supporters to continue to rally behind the team and to turn out in even bigger numbers next season.
