Orlando Pirates announces September goal of the month nominees

Published on

Orlando Pirates has named the six players as candidates for its monthly Ford goal prize for September 2018.

August 2018 winner Vincent Pule will have an opportunity to scoop a consecutive win as two of his September goals appears to be very strong contenders.

Pule is up against the likes of reserve team midfielder Simiso Bophela, fellow senior players Thembinkosi Lorch and Augustine Mulenga.


Bophela scored a cracker for Bucs’ Multichoice Diski Challenge clash against AmaZulu last month, driving a left-footed shot into the top right-hand corner from an acute angle.

Lorch, who also earns two spots on the list, hit his first goal of the season against SuperSport United as he sent a low, right-footed effort beyond Ronwen Williams’ outstretched arm.

Pule’s opening effort against Matsatsantsa also makes its way onto the list after he cleverly chested Innocent Maela’s cross into the back of the net from close range.

Mulenga joins them with what may not be one of his best goals for the club, but his well-placed left-footed strike in Pirates’ 2-2 draw with Cape Town City was certainly good enough to beat Peter Leeuwenburg.

Pule returns with that thunderous shot against Black Leopards, after he neatly brought the ball down with his chest, controlled it with his left foot and venomously hit it past Rotshidzwa Muleka.

Finally, Lorch completes the list with his tap-in against Lidoda Dhuva after a blunder by Muleka allowed him to sneak the ball into an empty net from Pule’s well-hit long-range pass.

Fans will vote for the winner on the club’s social media channels.
