Stellenbosch FC have confirmed that goalkeeper Sage Stephens has signed a new long-term contract with the club.

The 32-year-old joined Stellies from rivals Cape Town City in September 2020 and has made 86 appearances across all competitions while keeping 27 clean sheets in the process.

The shot-stopper has also played for the likes of Moroka Swallows, AmaZulu and Cape Town City in his career.

“I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to play for Stellenbosch FC and for the club showing faith in me by extending my contract,” Stephens told his club’s official website after penning a new deal.

“The club is at the point now where the aim is to compete on all fronts, as we showed with our recent Carling Knockout success, and I’m grateful for the chance to continue playing a role in that.

“This is my fourth season at the club and my goal is to keep my jersey and push for a spot in the national team, while continuing to win more trophies and compete for the league with Stellenbosch FC.”

Stellies CEO Rob Benadie added: “We are very pleased to have extended our contract with a consummate professional such as Sage. He has proven to be a leader at our club and one of the best goalkeepers in the country,”
