Andile is seen holding a big brown envelope filled with cash. The money consisted of R200 notes and it looked like they had plenty to go around as they walked all over the pitch. They made a spectacle out of the affair and someone in the background is heard saying this is a reward.

Having previously won 4-1 against Kaizer Chiefs, Royal AM has shown that they are in the business of scoring goals. Once again over the long weekend, Shauwn Mkhize's team managed to score four goals, impressing the masses.
Last month, Shauwn Mkhize, a KwaZulu-Natal-based entrepreneur and reality TV celebrity, purchased Celtic's top-flight status and transferred the club to Pietermaritzburg before renaming it Royal AM.
