When Kwame Peprah joined Orlando Pirates from Ghana's King Faisal in July last year, he was seen as a direct replacement for Congolese striker Jean-Marc Makusu who had failed at the Soweto giants before returning to DR Congo's AS Vita after his loan deal expired. There was no club success for the Ghanaian striker in his debut season in South African football.
Pirates were unable to seriously challenge for the Premier Soccer League championship and they finished sixth in the competition - failing to qualify for one of the Caf club tournaments with Peprah having had a slow start to life at the Houghton-based giants.
The Ghanaian striker didn't feature for the Buccaneers as they were eliminated from the MTN8 in the first round, but he made two appearances in the Nedbank Cup with Bucs being knocked out in the Last 16. However, the former Ghana under-23 international was a key player for the Buccaneers as they reached the Caf Confederation Cup final where they lost to Morocco's Berkane.
