Stellenbosch FC midfielder, Junior Awono wants to work extra hard in the second round of the South Africa First Division Championship to increase the club’s chances of gaining promotion to the the South African Premier Soccer League.
Approached for his impressions after an impressive first half of the season, Awono told Football-256 he was satisfied with his first round international.
“I am very happy and satisfied with the performance in the first round of the season.”
“The coach gave me the chance to play many games and my club is doing quite well, we are leading in a very difficult league,” said before adding.
“I am just continuing to learn South African Football and for now I am very satisfied though think I can do more.”
But with the first round behind him, Awono has all his efforts towards the second round because it’s here that it will matter most.
“My ambition this season is to give my best to make sure Stellenbosch and the good people of our city who support our club enjoy seeing us succeeding.”
“Being champions of the First Division will be difficult but one of these days the clubs will win the league.
“We will go one game at a time but we want to win this league. It is going to be a tough second round but we will fight for all points on offer,” he added.
Awono has been very instrumental for Stellenbosch FC in his debut campaign in South Africa. He missed just a game in the first round of the season because of suspension.
The combative midfielder has been a very good addition since he joined the club. Stellenbosch FC lead the log with 31 points from 15 games – 4 clear of closest challengers, Royal Eagles.
The former captain of the Intermediate Lions of Cameroon is back to his best in South Africa and showing why he remains one of the best midfielders that has ever played for YOSA of Bamenda.
