Galaxy announces summer of change

Striker Terrence Mandaza tops a list of players set to be released by Jwaneng Galaxy as the team strives to renew and shake up a squad that has yet to win major silver ware. Mandaza was signed two seasons ago from Township Rollers and it appears the player failed to revive his form that saw him score more than 40 goals in past seasons.

Also heading for the exit is fellow striker, Patrick Kaunda. The former Zimbabwean international also spent a trophy less season with Galaxy and the management has found it fit to part ways with him. Former Mochudi Centre Chiefs speedy winger, Ayanda Molefhe is also a notable player who is placed on the transfer list having failed to break in to the first 11. Galaxy says they have spent hundreds of Pulas for the services of these players but nothing in return has come out.

There are also thoughts surrounding the cases of defender and Captain Boitumelo Mafoko but the management is believed to be adopting a more cautious approach with regards to his issues. Mafoko, a former Zebras player is planning retirement at his own will and this has swiftly driven the club into a terrain difficult to manoeuvre, as it will struggle to identify his perfect replacement. This according to club sources will push Galaxy to negotiate with the former BDF XI defender for a possible stay.

Mafoko has been the pillar of strength for the Jwaneng based club. A defence marshalled by him and Resco has leaked 14 goals in 21 premier league matches.  As a full back, Galaxy has profited more goals from him whenever he attacks. His ability to turn defence into attack is the prime reason Galaxy find it difficult to cut ties with him. He has a vast experience after captaining the army boys BDF XI. He formed a fundamental part that saw BDF XI winning the 2013-14 Top 8 competition. A similar form and performance carried him into the Galaxy fold. He demonstrated maturity all the way.

The talent of these players, along with striker, Mandaza, who is now above 30 should have made the case for Galaxy to finally make headline impact. But the club failed dismally to win the title champion’s league, including the Top 8 competition. Galaxy has also fallen out of the CAF competition and could not go as far as Rollers did. The coaches and management agree that even as a unit, they could not find an edge and this band of serial winners could not get a glimpse at glory that was achieved by a previous squad led and managed by former coach, Mike Sithole.
