Peprah with a new lease on life after troubles in the PSL

22-year-old Ghanaian Kwame Peprah enjoyed a promising start to life at Orlando Pirates, but things quickly changed. When Jose Riveiro arrived, he fell down the pecking order and spent the second half of the 2022-23 campaign out on loan with Maritzburg. All told, Peprah scored nine goals in 44 appearances for Pirates in a frustrating spell at Mayfair. Now, he’s stitched together TWO consecutive 90 minute appearances in Israel, something he never achieved in South Africa. He also scored on debut.
