Botswana Premier League (BPL) giants Township Rollers have released two players ahead of the 2018/19 BTC Premiership campaign.
Defender-cum-midfielder Tshepo Matete and striker Mthokozisi Msomi, who both hail from South Africa have parted ways with the Gaborone-based giants.
The duo joined Rollers as free agents prior to the start of the 2017/18 season and they helped the club clinch the BTC Premiership title, and Mascom Top 8 Cup.
The two players also helped the Blues make history by becoming the first Botswana club to reach the CAF Champions League group stage.
Matete and Msomi previously turned out for South African clubs Baroka FC, and Jomo Cosmos FC.
The Blues announced the departure of the two players on their official website:
A club statement:
“Msomi and Matete Released.”
“Township Rollers FC informs all that Mthokozisi Msomi and Tshepo Matete have mutually agreed on terms to terminate their contract with the club and have been released.”
“Township Rollers FC thanks both of them for their services during their tenure with the club, and we wish them all the very best for all their future endeavours ahead.”
