The South African Football Association (SAFA) has congratulated Second Division side, Maluti FET College for progressing to the next round of the Nedbank Cup after crushing reigning Premiership champions Orlando Pirates 4-1 at Charles Mopeli Stadium on Saturday, 23 February 2013.

"What the achievement has done for other amateur sides when playing top sides is not to be overawed by the occasion. Regardless of what happens going forward, Maluti are the greatest winners in this year's competition," added the SAFA President.
