Being Loaned Out And Chiefs’ Release
Matsheke, a 24-year-old midfielder, had a relatively brief stint with Chiefs, making just 12 appearances for the club after being promoted to the first team in 2020.
His career saw him loaned out to Uthongathi in 2021 before joining Swallows on loan in 2022.
However, at the end of the last season, Chiefs decided to release him from his contract, paving the way for his next move in professional football.
Stellenbosch FC’s Move On The Card
According to sources, Matsheke’s representatives have been diligently working to secure a trial with Stellenbosch FC.
He is currently on trial at the club, as they are still in Gauteng after MTN8 semifinal defeat to Orlando Pirates despite winning the second match 1-0.
While no official announcement has been made yet, the prospect of Matsheke joining Stellenbosch represents an exciting opportunity for the talented midfielder to reignite his professional career.
His journey from the Chiefs academy to a potential role at Stellenbosch showcases the resilience and determination of young footballers seeking to make their mark in the competitive world of South African football.
