So who will be the MTC NPL Player of the Season?
Jerome Louis, Rudolph Bester or Ninja Karongee?
Louis put his stamp on the season with an amazing goalscoring record of a goal a game. He in fact scored 22 in 21 games. He displayed that goalscorer’s killer instinct and was inevitably there to put the ball in the net.
He played a major role in Black Africa’s second round unbeaten revival that saw them challenge for the title before finally finishing third. He was their talisman, their reliable finisher.
