The 30-year-old defender walked away with Absa Premiership Footballer of the Season, Players’ Player of the Season, and the Defender of the Season.

According to African Football, Mashamaite says throughout the season that he and Mathoho formed a special bond in the heart of defence which was almost twin brother-like.

"Tower, younger than me, but we have that connection like he is my twin brother. This year we grew together, we faced challenges," said Mashamaite.

"I know there were games where he really wanted to go out, he was feeling pain, and we pushed each other. Even if I wasn't having the best of games, he came through for me and covered for me.

"We always tell each other that, as long as we have each others back at the centre of defence - we will go a long way.”
