Thembisa - Newly promoted Absa Premiership side Highlands Park veteran goalkeeper Tapuwa Kapini has thanked their vocal fans for their ongoing support, following their triumph at the Premier Soccer League (PSL) or National First Division (NFD) relegation and promotion play-off.

The 'Lions of the North' booked their place in next seasons’ top flight campaign after finishing at the summit of the mini-league and the veteran shot-stopper believes that their 12th man played a significant role in guiding their team to the PSL.

The Zimbabwean-born player also stressed out that all PSL teams supporters should learn from the Lions’ faithfuls and rally behind their teams, which in turn makes every game so exciting.

“On behalf of my teammates, I’d love to say thank you to the supporters for sticking with us throughout last season,” said Kapini.

“They have been very supportive since day one when we lost to Moroka Swallows and they didn’t stop believing in us.

“They have been vocal and encouraging the team whenever we play at home.

“So to our supporters, we love you gents and we hope you continue supporting us even in the PSL.

“We want to see the stadium fully packed like that again next season.

“That’s how football games should be played, with so much crowd in the stands, not only for our games but the rest of the PSL games as well.”
