JOHANNESBURG – Fresh from being crowned Highlands Park’s Young Player of the Season for his impressive last term, Sphiwe Mahlangu is banking on continuing with the rich form for the Lions of the North in the new season.
In his first campaign in the Premiership, Mahlangu registered 22 appearances for Highlands.
In the heart of the engine room, he dictated play and turned up as a hero for his team when necessary.
For his impressive exploits, the Owen da Gama-coached team achieved the improbable – finishing seventh in the Premiership standings upon their return to top-flight football.
“As a player, I want to help the team get a trophy this season,” Mahlangu said.
