Malete to attend CAF TMS workshop

Botswana Women National Team Assistant coach, Alex Malete, is set to head to Tunisia on Monday to attend a CAF TMS workshop. Malete was chosen last year for his commitment on and off the pitch with regard to the development of women’s football.

Attending the two-day workshop means Malete will miss the return leg between the Mares and Brave Gladiators of Namibia on Tuesday. Malete highlighted it is important that as coaches they understand what is happening around the game for them to be in full control of their teams.

The gaffer says it’s unfortunate that he will be missing the return leg but was hopeful that returning head coach Gaoletlhoo Nkutusang will be able to manage the result as they have worked closely together.

Botswana Junior National Teams under-17 (Diamond Zebras) and the under-20 (Young Zebras) will this weekend of 23rd – 25th August 2019 report to camp. The two teams will play friendly matches against Eswatini U17 & U20 boys on the 24th and 25th August 2019.

The games will be used to give the two teams international match practice. For his part, Diamond Zebras coach Tebogo Mokute says his charges will benefit greatly from the games as they have worked on different approaches and tactics in recent months and he is positive the team understands his vision.

Mokute will lead the Diamond Zebras to the 2019 COSAFA championships to be staged in Malawi from the 25th September to the 5th October 2019. The under-20 team under the tutelage of Raizor Tsatsilebe will find the games important as they have also started preparations for the 2019 COSAFA championship scheduled for December 2019 in Zambia.

Eswatini is expected to arrive in Botswana on Friday evening with games set to be played at Lekidi grounds. On Saturday 1600hrs and 0900hrs kick off on Sunday morning before the boys from the Kingdom of Eswatini return home.
