Reading Time: < 1 minute

Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila has made history by winning their first-ever major trophy.  They lifted the Nedbank Cup at the Free State Stadium on Saturday evening after a hard-fought 1-0 win over Chippa United.

Tshakhuma started the stronger of the two teams, with the likes of Thabo Rakhale, Celimpilo Ngema, and Thabo Mnyamane seeing plenty of the ball and forcing Chippa onto the back foot in the early minutes.

The team will compete in the CAF confederation Cup next season. 

The Eastern Cape side gradually settled into a rhythm and began to establish themselves in the game. But TTM then claimed the lead in the 27th minute.

Ndabayithethwa Ndlondo tried his luck from long range and saw his effort deflect off the head of defender Frederic Nsabiyumva to wrong-foot goalkeeper Ismail Watenga and find the back of the net.

Here are the highlights from the match:
