Captain Thami Mkhize scooped the big prizes at Cape Town City’s awards night on Monday.
The rightback has led his club by example this season again and was named the Player of the Year after leading them to MTN8 and playing in 34 matches in all competitions.
With City also securing a fourth-place finish in the PSL, the 30-year-old was also named the Player’s Player of the Year for his three goals and marauding runs down the flank that is a source of a lot of City’s goals.
