Cameroon collected the maximum points from their Safa SAB League game against Delportshoop United at the Galeshewe Stadium on Saturday afternoon after substitute Duran van Wyk came on and secured the game for the Lions in the second half.

At half time the score was 1-1, but by the time the game ended Cameroon had nailed down a 2-1 scoreline. Cameroon brought in four new faces into their playing squad.

They roped in Elridge Sickles originally from Colville United who ply their trade in the senior ABC Motsepe League; Lionell Snyders from William Pescod Athletic; and included Eddie Williams from Northern Cape Celtics who play in the Sol Plaatje LFA. The last signee is the Glamour Boys’ ( Saints FC) Sidney Norman who took over the reins as coach of the team.

It looks as if the team’s management are in the building phase and ramping up for a much more forceful presence in the league. They have yet to win a significant trophy of any description in the Safa zone league though.

The first goal on Saturday came for Cameroon via Rodrick Japhta who made it 1-0. The visitors immediately launched a fightback and hustled for the equaliser which duly arrived through Katlego Theme whose equaliser came a nudge before the break.

The second half saw both sides effect changes to their starting line-ups. Cameroon seemingly had the better changes to their squad as one of the substitutes Van Wyk scored for his side.

Norman boasted a broad smile on his face as he watched his charges run the defending opponents ragged.

Delportshoop United coach Joseph Pienaar was visibly a far from happy chap as he contemplated the day’s results.

Meanwhile, in the same league in an earlier game at the Galeshewe Stadium Juventus took on Kwa-Nobantu Celtics who walloped them 4-1.

Celtics scorers were: Kabo Mokolong, a brace from Bongani Malaza and another strike from Paseka Makaudi. Edward Williams scored for Juventus.
