Stellenbosch Football Club is delighted to announce Sage Stephens will extend his stay in the Cape Winelands after signing a new long-term contract with the club.

“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 said after putting pen to paper.

“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.”

Stephens joined the Maroons in 2020 and has since made 86 appearances across all competitions, the most by any goalkeeper in the club’s history.

“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,” CEO Rob Benadie added.
