Two top players Lucky Mohomi and Letsie Koapeng from the relegated Limpopo side, Marumo Gallants have been announced by a new DStv Premiership club.

Bahlabane Ba Ntwa suffered a sorrowful 2-0 defeat to Swallows FC at the Dobsonville Stadium on the final day of the 2022/2023 season and were relegated to the Motsepe Foundation Championship.

Mohomi and Koapeng played together for only one season at Gallants. The two players were also clubless in the 2021/2022 season. This is before they were given a chance to revive their careers at Bahlabane Ba Ntwa.

KwaZulu-Natal based outfit Richards Bay have secured a double signing of Gallants as they prepare for a DStv Premiership 2023/2024 season.

The Natal Rich Boys have wasted no time bringing on board the duo. Mohomi and Koapeng put pen-to-paper on an undisclosed length of the deals.

“Welcome to the family of Natal Rich Boys.”

OTHER PLAYERS EXPECTED TO LEAVE GALLANTS

And as expected, a host of players will also leave the 2023 Confederations semi-finalist to find new homes.

Ranga Chivaviro leads the list of players who are anticipated to leave Gallants. Chivaviro has also reportedly signed a pre-contract with Richards Bay.

Meanwhile, the dribbling wizard Katlego Otladisa is heavily linked with a move to Orlando Pirates. Another key player who is set to leave is Celimpilo Ngema. He will join AmaZulu next season.
