As expected, Free State Stars strolled back to the Castle Premiership yesterday after spending just one season in the Mvela Golden League, thanks to their 3-0 triumph over Western Province United in Wynberg.

A jubilant Mike Mokoena, Stars' boss, insisted yesterday his charges have the stamina to cope with the daunting task of playing in the top flight.

"We are going to stay as long as we can in the elite league and that's where we belong anyway," said Mokoena.
