Nomvethe expected to shine at PSL awards




THE Absa Premiership’s 2011/12 Season curtain goes down this evening with a Gala Dinner at the Gold Reef City’s Lyric Theatre where the deserving individuals from various clubs will be honoured with awards.

Moroka Swallows’ ageing striker, Siyabonga “Bhele” Nomvethe is expected to be the biggest winner during tonight’s proceedings if his sterling performance that saw him guides the Dube Birds to the deserving second position finish is anything to go by.

Nomvethe who turns 35 on December 2 is already guaranteed the Golden Boot Award in the bag after having rattled the net 20 times, beating the second best top scorer Eleazar Rodgers of Santos with seven goals clear. Rodgers scored 13 times, but that could not help Santos who are currently fighting to keep their Premiership status via the National First Division Promotional Play-Offs.

Apart from the Top Goal-Scorer award, Nomvethe stand a chance of scooping one or more awards as he has also been nominated for the Players Player and the Player of the Year awards categories. For the record, the Player of the Year award goes along with an incentive of R250 000.

His competitors in those two categories are his team-mate, David “DVD” Mathebula who have had a great season at Swallows, scoring ten league goals and Orlando Pirates’ Siyabonga Sangweni.

In the Players Player of the Season, Bhele is competing against Mamelodi Sundowns’ Teko Modise and Mathebula (David)
