ORLANDO PIRATES NOT RETURNING AZOLA MATROSE TO CHIPPA UNITED?
Matrose, aged 19, was hot for just a couple of games in 2021/22 before the Buccaneers surprised us all by signing the Gqeberha-born winger before also keeping him on loan with the Chilli Boys last season.
After as little as 16 appearances that included two goals last term, Pirates recalled Matrose for pre-season in Johannesburg and Spain before making a new decision.
The club have now decided Matrose will be in Soweto next season.

CHIPPA SAY GOODBYE
Having returned to Gqeberha to say goodbye to his family and friends, Matrose also stopped by Chippa’s training to pass his gratitude to the club that discovered him in Motherwell as a school boy.
We bid farewell to our esteemed Azola Matrose, who has brought great pride to our province. Wishing you all the best in your future endeavours.
