Awal Signs With Maritzburg
08 August 2012
Maritzburg United have signed Mohammed Awal as the club looks to bolster their defence ahead of their 2012/13 PSL campaign. The Ghanaian has signed with the Team of Choice after completing a successful trial with the side.
The club’s chairman, Farook Kadodia, told the Siya crew that Awal has been signed on a long-term deal. “Yes, he has signed with us on a long-term deal. It’s a three-year deal with an option of two years,” said Kadodia.
The former Asante Kotoko player was unveiled at the KZN-based side alongside Mario Booysen, who has rejoined the team from SuperSport United in a swap deal involving Mor Diouf.
The two players will be expected to play a key-role in the team’s defence this season, under the guidance of coach Ernst Middendorp.
Maritzburg have also confirmed that first-choice goalkeeper Shu-Aib Walters has signed a new four-year deal.
