Hockey 24 Seven Episode 3 – Phumelela Mbande

This week’s episode of Hockey 24 Seven, the first dedicated Hockey podcast in South Africa, features the newly qualified Chartered Accountant Phumelela Mbande. Of course her business acumen is not what brings her to the podcast this week, but rather her goalkeeping prowess.

The shot stopper talks to Jabu and Derek about THAT game against Argentina, the highs of playing in a World Cup and Commonwealth Games, the juggling act of being a professional and a national hockey player as well as her involvement in the Players for Transformation Movement. She also takes on the Hockey 24 Seven One Question Quiz, as she looks to join Lloyd Norris-Jones on the honours board!

Hockey 24 Seven is a collaboration between Sports 24 Seven and Rayder Media and is presented by Tyron “Jabu” Barnard and renowned sports journalist Derek Alberts. If you would like to get in contact please email or
