“I am privileged to have the chance to play with Telkom Orange and it’s my duty as a new player in the team to deliver my best and to continue defending the national league title and the Africa Club of Champions” said Terry Masibo.

“What really attracted me to the team is the spirit of the players, commitment, dedication, hard work and discipline that has seen them going places and retaining their title. I believe with my talent and dedication to the team for this 2013 season, Telkom Orange ladies will be able to retain their title” She added.
