Cape Town - Junior Awono and Dickson Afoakwa have had their contracts terminated by Stellenbosch FC, the club confirmed on Wednesday.

According to the club's statement, both players have not been able to break into the first team and the Cape Winelands side have decided to release the duo.

The statement said: "Stellenbosch FC has terminated by mutual agreement the contracts of midfielder Junior Awono and forward Dickson Afoakwa.

"Dickson signed at the beginning of the current 2019/20 season and has not been able to force his way into a regular first-team place.

"Junior was one of the stalwarts of the historic SFC championship-winning team in the NFD last season. He has been plagued by injuries this season though and is looking to secure more regular match time at his next club.

"Junior has left a legacy at the club with this unrivalled professionalism and dedication, culminating in winning the prestigious Players' Player of the Year Award last season.

"The club sincerely thanks both Junior and Dickson for their service to SFC and wishes them the very best with their careers going forward."

Stellenbosch are currently bottom of the PSL standings having collected just 12 points from 14 matches.
