Swallows Chairman Reveals Youth Academy Plans


The conclusion of the 2019/20 GladAfrica Championship season saw the dramatic top-flight return of Swallows FC, who gained automatic promotion on goal difference with a 3-0 win over TTM FC. This sees their return to premiership action, where they will be able to compete with Soweto rivals Orlando Pirates & Kaizer Chiefs in derbies for the first time in five years. There are now question surrounding the squad’s depth, with players such as Given Thibedi, Itumeleng Shopane & Kagiso Malinga having spent the past season on loan with the club.

Swallows FC Club Chairman David Mogashoa joins The Big Interview podcast to discuss his expectations for the upcoming 2020/21 campaign, the club’s plans to increase squad depth and their intention to strengthen their youth academy setup. Mogashoa gives a clear outline for the ‘Dube Birds’ mandate for the season ahead.
