The SAFA Chris Hani SAB League Champions Seven Stars FC will be playing their football in the Provincial SAFA ABC Motsepe League next season after the past weekend’s dominant performance in the SAB League Provincial playoffs in Gqeberha.

The Eastern Cape SAB League provincial playoffs played at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Gqeberha involved regional winners from eight Eastern Cape SAFA regions, namely Hosts SAFA Nelson Mandela Bay (Motherwell Academy FC), SAFA Alfred Nzo (Thohoyandou FC), SAFA Amathole (Musketeers FC), SAFA Buffalo City (Relatives FC), SAFA Joe Gqabi (EMI FC), SAFA OR Tambo (Mighty Eagles FC), SAFA Sarah Baartman (MARU FC) and Seven Stars FC from SAFA Chris Hani.

After failing to impress in last season's playoffs in Mthatha, Stars kicked off the campaign on fire against hosts Motherwell Academy in the opening fixtures of the two-day tournament, walloping them 5-0 with Shaydon Rowland scoring a hat trick in that game. Rowland went on to become the tournament’s top goal scorer with seven goals in three games. Stars continued with the form beating Musketeers 2-1 in their second game, while drawing their last game against Relatives 3-3.

Scouts from professional teams such as Kaizer Chiefs, Pretoria University and Cape Town Spurs were present to search for fresh talent and they all showed interest in Seven Stars striker, Rowland.

The battle for promotion was not an easy one for the team from Aloevale in Komani as they were trying for the second time this year in the Provincial Playoffs.

The President SAFA Chris Hani Sandile Mata has congratulated Seven Stars for being promoted.

“This win is massive. This has been a fairy-tale by Seven Stars in this tournament,’’ said SAFA CH President Mata.

"On behalf of the football family in the Chris Hani District, I would like to say congratulations to Stars players, the coaching staff and management. This has been a team effort and this win has lifted the spirit of the entire region”.

This is a third football team to be promoted to the provincial league under the leadership of Mata in the region, the first team was Amavarara in 2018, the women football team from Engcobo Eluhewini Ladies followed and now Seven Stars.

Alfred Nzo side Thohoyandou FC also got promoted after winning Group A in Gqeberha.
