Seshego Cannons are confident that they will move out of the relegation zone in the Limpopo Softball Association (LSA) LimDev Super League.
This is despite the Seshego side's failure to secure a single point in their opening five league matches.
The club has conceded 102 runs, which is the most in the league, and has managed to score only 20, which is an aggregate of four runs a match.
Maputla Makgato, Cannons' acting coach, said the exodus of experienced players to the league's big teams, coupled with the departure of former head coach Kgabo Manamela, contributed to their current dismal state.
"We are in a rebuilding stage, with young and inexperienced players," said Makgato.
"I believe that these youngsters' confidence will grow when we play against other struggling clubs like University of Limpopo and Hlakano Dodgers next month."
Cannons have lost the likes of Jack Mabala to Seleteng Giant Killers and Ronny Mashangoana to their neighbours Seshego Raiders.
Derrick Leopeng, Thabo Mulaudzi, Katlego Gwangwa and Marvin Teffo left to join Mahwelereng Spikes.
