League matches postponed to honour former medic

Pascalinah Kabi MASERU— Vodacom Premier League matches which were due to be played yesterday were postponed to today to honour former Likuena team doctor Tšenoli Putsoane.

Putsoane, who died on February 11 at Queen ‘Mamohato Memorial Hospital, was buried yesterday in Morija.

Premier league management committee communications and marketing manager Lehlohonolo Matlosa told the Sunday Express they postponed league matches to honour Putsoane for his dedication to football.

“All the matches which were supposed to be played tomorrow (Saturday) will now be played on Sunday,” Matlosa said on Friday.

“We took this decision to postpone all the games to Sunday mainly to honour the memory of Likuena team doctor Putsoane.”

He said they needed to give all football teams an opportunity to attend the funeral service as Putsoane had worked with many people in the premier league.

“It was only fitting that we postpone the matches given that Ntate Putsoane was not just a Likuena team doctor but he was involved in football in many ways,” Matlosa said.

“He also worked with many people and we wanted to give teams and other football followers a chance to attend the funeral service.”

Linare and Bantu will today lock horns in Hlotse while Joy host Matlama in Leribe.

Likhopo meet champions Lesotho Correctional Service (LCS) at Ratjomose.

The late Putsoane was serving as the Under 17, Under 20, Mehalalitoe, and Likuena team doctor since 2006.

Today’s Premier League fixtures:

Likhopo vs LCS (Ratjomose), LDF vs LMPS (Ratjomose), Joy vs Matlama (Leribe), Linare vs Bantu (Hlotse), Majantja vs Lioli (Mohales’ Hoek) and Mpharane Celtics vs Maduma (St Michaels).
