SOMILA Ntsundwana has resurfaced in the DStv Premiership with newly promoted Richards Bay and wants to make an impact for the KZN side by causing trouble for defenders.
Ntsundwana, the former Bidvest Wits and AmaZulu striker has struggled to find the back of the net despite being influential in games. In the GladAfrica Championship (now the Motsepe Foundation Championship), he scored three goals in 27 appearances for the Natal Rich Boyz last season.
The 25-year-old is aware that he’ll be competing with the best strikers in the PSL such as Mamelodi Sundowns Golden Boot winner Peter Shalulile and Victor Letsoalo of Sekhukhune United. He knows he will have to work hard to compete and score goals when he gets minutes to play.
“I’m happy for the opportunity I got with Richards Bay. To get promoted to the DStv Premiership is a huge achievement and we have to stay in this league,” said Ntsundwana. “I want to score goals, I want to compete. It’s hard to be called a striker and then fail to score goals. I have to work hard and convert all the chances I get whenever coaches give me the chance to play.
“In this league, there are players like Peter Shalulile, people who have a great goal scoring ability. I also want to get to that level. Maybe one day I can also win the Golden Boot.”
Richards Bay begin their 2022-23 Premiership campaign at Princess Magogo Stadium on Saturday (3pm) when they lock horns with Golden Arrows in a KwaZulu-Natal derby.
