KICK4LIFE Ladies’ defender Mosili Motšoeneng, who has been on trial at Bloemfontein Celtic Ladies since October this year, says she is hopeful to secure a contract at the club.

The stocky defender, who also plays for the senior national ladies’ soccer team, Mehalalitoe, joined the two-time Sasol champions straight after Mehalalitoe’s COSAFA campaign in in Port Elizabeth in September this year.

Motšoeneng said so far everything has gone well and she is now waiting to hear if she will get a contract.

“Ever since I arrived here things have been going smooth and now, I am waiting for the upcoming transfer window to see if Celtic will sign me and register me,” Motšoeneng said.

She said she was happy about the warm reception from fellow players and she is slowly getting used to the environment.

“Everyone is good here. The reception has been fantastic from everyone and slowly I am getting used to how things are done.

“It will be a dream come true to sign for Bloemfontein Celtic because they are hard workers. We have been working so hard since my arrival.

“People here are also friendly and I still feel as if I am still back at home at Kick4Life. I guess that’s one of the reasons for which settling in has been smooth,” she said.

The Mehalalitoe right back said her experience with Celtic is going to help her grow as a player as she is mixing with different players from different countries.

“The environment here is different from back home because the team is run professionally so it is a big step for me. Women’s football this side is more competitive than at home and it is also good news that Bloemfontein Celtic has qualified for the National League next year,” Motšoeneng said.

“We are also here mixing with people from different types of people and religions so it is a good but challenging experience at the same time,” she said.

Celtic were in October crowned Free State Sasol League making it three in a raw.
