Ramblers finished the first round of the MTC Namibia Premier League on a high note when they beat their closest rivals Cymot SKW 2-0 on March 9 to go two points clear at the top of the log.
The match had to be replayed after a thunderstorm ended the first encounter prematurely after about 35 minutes. At that stage Ramblers were already leading 2-0 through goals by John Samson and Nelson Akwenye, but in a near carbon copy of that match, Ramblers once again beat SKW 2-0 in the replay a week later. Samson and Akwenye were once again the goal scorers while Bradley Wermann gave an inspired performance in midfield, providing both the goals.
A week later Ramblers beat Fedics 2-0 through goals by Raymond Awaseb and John Samson to remain two points ahead of SKW and take a step closer to winning the title for the first time in 16 years.
Ramblersâ?? coach Tollie van Wyk refused to get carried away, insisting that they were taking each match one at a time.
