Vice-cap­tain Collen Zimba: “This is the first time I have been coached by a fe­male. It was not nor­mal the first time, but I have learnt to work with her and it has been a good jour­ney. She is a tough woman who stands her ground. She is so knowl­edge­able, she can coach any team.”

Team man­ager Daniel “Strike” Nethonje said: “South Africa is a demo­cratic coun­try and we didn’t hire the coach be­cause of her gen­der or colour, but be­cause of her knowl­edge of the game, as well as her im­pres­sive coach­ing qual­i­fi­ca­tions.”
