MASERU — Tšepo Seturumane has vowed to keep his feet on the ground after he swept three Vodacom premier league awards at Maseru Sun Hotel on Thursday.
The left footed striker won the Players’ Player of the Season, Top Goal-scorer and Player of the Year awards.
He pocketed M10 000 for his efforts.
“It is still a shock to me that I scooped three awards, all I knew was that I’m the league’s top goal scorer and did not expect the other two,” Seturumane said.
“I therefore want to thank those at my club Lioli especially the coach who believed in my abilities.”
Seturumane scored 16 goals to end last season as the league’s leading marksman.
He also paid tribute to his teammates who he said played a pivotal role him in making him the best player in the country only in his second season of top flight football.
“I’m confident that I will be even a better player in the new season.
“I achieved all of this because I worked hard and listened to those who played the sport at the highest level before me,” said Seturumane.
“I will keep my feet on the ground as there is a lot still ahead of me which include being a regular in the national team.”
Seturumane said he wants to build from his performance in the regional Cosafa Cup where he scored his first goal in the national team colours in the 2-0 win over Swaziland.
His coach, Lehlohonolo Thotanyana, won the Coach of the Season award.
He walked away with M2 500 after helping Tse Nala lift the league title.
The veteran coach has already stepped down from his position and will now work as the technical director for the Teyateyaneng-based side.
He took over the reins at the club the previous season after they failed to qualify for the top four.
Thotanyana then led the club to league success last season.
Likhopo youngster, Tumelo Makhopo, 18, won the Young Player of the Season award and walked away with M2 000 in prize money.
Motheola Makhobalo won the Referee of the Year award while Lesupi Puputla took the Assistant Referee of the Year award, each taking home M2 000.
The media awards went to Nthako Majoro of Public Eye in the print category, Mpho Mosala of Radio Lesotho in radio while Shato Khatleli was the best TV presenter and each received M1 000.
