The players received their dues on Friday and responded with a sterling performance 24 hours later which saw them thump Buffaloes 2-0 at Gibbo Stadium. The Lowveld-based side, coached by Gishon Ntini, reportedly owed its players an estimated $15 000.
The players were addressed by one of Tongaat Hulett top executives, Thomas Dheka, last week who promised to address all their problems.
A senior player who spoke on condition of anonymity said he was very happy with the development and thanked this publication for exposing their plight.
“All the players received their dues, I went to the bank with most of the players on (Friday) and the money reflected in our accounts. I would also like to thank NewsDay for exposing some of the issues that had been affecting us,” he said.
“The other thing is that our new camping site, about 25km from Triangle, is brilliant. As players at Triangle, we are grateful to the top management who came to help us when we needed them most. We are now going to do wonders on the field of play,” he added.
New Triangle chairman Lovemore Matikinyidze was not available for comment.
