Sekhukhune United have confirmed the appointment of Brendon Truter as their new head coach. He has signed a contract until 2025

Truter replaces Kaitano Tembo who left Babina Noko recently. 

Truter made his name when he led Swallows FC to the Premier Soccer League. This was after some time campaigning in the National First Division. When he was fired by AmaZulu boss recently, Truter was replaced by Romain Folz, who held the fort at Marumo Gallants.

Former Bloemfontein Celtic and Maritzburg United coach John Maduka was also in the running to land the coaching job at Babina Noko.

Sekhukhune United are languishing in the relegation quagmire on position 15 after winning only two matches from 12 games.


“Sekhukhune is delighted to announce the appointment of Brendon Truter as head coach until 2025. Truter joins Babina Noko after having impressed the board with his long-term vision for returning the team to the level the team want to compete at.

“Truter will be assisted by MacDonald Makhubedu as the only assistant in a revamped technical team. Further announcements are to be made in due course.”
