Malesela Adds Hlongwane As First Signing

Baroka FC have confirmed the signing of former TS Galaxy winger Lifa Hlongwane as they look to win promotion to the DStv Premiership.

Hlongwane, 30, parted ways with Galaxy earlier this season where he fell out of favour after scoring two goals in 39 games under head coach Sead Ramovic.

He now returns to the Motsepe Foundation Championship with Bakgaka, where he enjoyed some of the best football of his career during his time with Black Leopards.

The club confirmed he signed a one-year deal with an option to extend with Dan Malesela’s side who are unbeaten in seven games since his appointment.

They currently sit fourth in the standings, two points behind league leaders Orbit College.
