This cups will bring Pirates coach Mandla Ncikazi to work with his rival coach Stuart Baxter. It is shocking right? Rather a bizzare move but it doesn't stop there.

From the four teams only one coach was selected to lead the team and that coach is Dylan Kerr. The three other coaches will be advisors to the head coach Kerr.

The duo of Stuart Baxter and Mandla Ncikazi never shared any ideas in any platform before and now it will for the first time these coaches work closely together in an aim to bring a trophy to Soweto.

Indeed this is a historic move for coaches of different benches to work together.

The roles of Baxter and Ncikazi have been revealed, they will be the technical advisors for the Warriors FC side, this is according to information produced by iDiskiTimes.

The format of the Cup is new for everyone, neither Stuart Baxter or Mandla Ncikazi ever worked in a team with so many coaches.

The line-up of Warriors FC:


Itumeleng Khune ( Kaizer Chiefs )


Njabulo Ngcobo ( Kaizer Chiefs )

Paseka Mako ( Orlando Pirates )

Happy Jele ( Orlando Pirates )

Thabo Matlaba ( Swallows FC )


Thembinkosi Lorch ( Orlando Pirates )

Deon Hotto ( Orlando Pirates )

Nkosingiphile Ngcobo ( Kaizer Chiefs )

Njabulo Blom ( Kaizer Chiefs )


Keagan Dolly ( Kaizer Chiefs )

Kwame Peprah ( Orlando Pirates )

Both Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates dominate the line-up with five players from each side with only one from Swallows FC and none from TS Galaxy.

The rest of the other players will make it into the bench.

So TS Galaxy will represented in the bench also as their coach Esau Mtsweni will be part of the technical advisors on the day.

Kerr will certainly need all the assistance he can get from the men who have coached these players all season.

Do you think Warriors FC bring a trophy to Soweto?
