Sekgaile - 'I'm proud to be a 'Bird'!'

Tebogo Sekgaile, the winner of the VW Polo GTI on Moroka Swallows' open day on Saturday, is proud to be a member of the 'Beautiful Birds' family!

Sekgaile was handed the keys to his new car from Ryan Searle, the Marketing Manager of Volkswagen South Africa, and Luthando Zibeko, from Kick-Off, during Saturday's exciting open day event at Old Moroka Jabavu Stadium on Saturday.

"I have not won anything in my life and when I was announced as the winner of this beautiful car I was overwhelmed with joy and pride, especially because my favourite team has earned me my first [competition] prize," a proud Sekgaile told the official Swallows website.

He added: "I learnt about this competition in the Kick-Off magazine and I decided to enter it. Little did I know that I would eventually win it.

"I want to say thank you to Moroka Swallows and to our sponsors, VW, for giving this prized gift. To the Swallows fans who have turned their back on the club I want to say come back to the club. Who knows? Maybe you might win something as well!"

Sekgaile first started supporting Swallows in 1985 after he was impressed by the side's entertaining football during a match against Wits University (which is now known as BidVest Wits).

"Guys like Chippa Molatedi and Andries Mpondo touched my heart and I became a Swallows fan that day. Today, my favourite player is Lefa Tsutsutsulupa," concluded an elated Sekgaile.
