The Stellenbosch FC finally saw what they wanted in me and gave me a 1 season contract,the beginning wasn’t very easy especially with the language but my mates and coaches helped me adapt quickly”

“We had a great season but must multiply efforts if to compete and stay in the PSL next season”; Awono added
