Introduction[edit]

Miscellaneous Football Club a soccer club based in Serowe, Botswana.[1] The club is currently playing in the Botswana Premier League.[2] The club's colours are red and white.[3]

HISTORY

The last time Miscellaneous competed in the elite league was in the 1970s when there was only National First Division. That was then and since their demotion to the lower ranks, the Serowe side has struggled to make ends meet.

Interestingly, the first President of Botswana, late Sir Seretse Khama when he returned from exile, formed Miscellaneous in 1962. At the time, Khama is reported to have found Motherwell being the only side in the village. He formed Miscellaneous and recruited some players from Motherwell. Khama found it strange that there can be only one team in Serowe and wanted Miscellaneous to challenge Motherwell.

Miscellaneous became a household name and produced a number of players who have gone to shine at other Gaborone sides like Township Rollers, Gaborone United and BDF XI.

If you look at the history of Serowe, the royal family led all the teams. Seretse handed the team to his son Ian in the 70s and has since remained the life president of the club.

Miscellaneous has always produced brilliant players but were disadvantaged by lack of job openings in the village. The likes of OG
