Supersport take SA title

Posted on 19 May 2008  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Congratulations to Supersport United - our Academy partners in South Africa - who clinched the ABSA Premiership title for the first time in a dramatic finale on Sunday.

SuperSport United finished two points ahead of Ajax Cape Town, who drew 2-2 at Lamontville Golden Arrows, after starting the final day needing only a draw to win the championship.

Both Supersport and Ajax Cape Town qualify for next year's CAF Champions League. Santos, who finished in third place, qualify for the African Confederation Cup.

Meanwhile, Supersport's Academy spent last week at Spurs Lodge where they played a series of friendlies against our Academy team, Manchester United and Hibernian.

They impressed everyone with their skill, technique and tactical acumen as they drew all three friendlies - coming from 1-0 down to draw with United, leading 2-0 against us before it finished 2-2 and then Sunday's 1-1 draw against Hibernian, where Mbuso Manyoni put Supersport ahead only for Hibernian to level two minutes later.
