Highlands Park FC coach Owen Da Gama is on cloud nine after his team won automatic promotion to the ABSA Premiership next season with 4 games to spare.

Highlands are back in South Africa’s top tier after an emphatic 5-1 win over University of Pretoria.

The side is home to former national team goalkeeper Tapuwa Kapini who played the entire match and striker Charlton Mashumba who was kept on the bench.

Kapini has been a vital cog in the team having kept most clean sheets on conceding 11 goals the whole season.
