Cape Town - Orlando Pirates striker
Lyle Foster says he'll 'treasure forever' his debut goal against Polokwane City
Foster, 17, came off the bench to net an
86th minute equaliser in the 1-1 league draw with Rise and Shine at the Orlando
Stadium on Saturday night.
He admits he would preferred to have scored
a winning goal, but is nonetheless very proud of notching his first goal for
the Soweto giants.
"It's an amazing feeling to score my
first senior goal and it's one that I will remember and treasure forever,"
Foster told the club's website.
"Every game that I play I wonder if
the goal will come then, but now that I've scored I'm hopeful that they will
keep on coming," the South African U20 international continued.
"The fact that we drew is not ideal
especially after the good momentum that we carried going into this game from
our two big wins in a row.
"I think I would have enjoyed scoring
this goal even more had we won, but I suppose playing a part in keeping an
undefeated start is the next best thing.
"I'm hoping that when I get my next
chance, I can score as part of the winning team. After your first goal, it's
the winning team goals that are best to remember. I will never forget this one
Foster, who was promoted from the Pirates
development side ahead of the current season, will be eyeing his next
opportunity to get on the score-sheet when Bucs play Platinum Stars in
Rustenburg this Saturday.
Kick-off is at 15:30.
