Yebo Yes United, an Orlando Pirates feeder team, is hosting open trials in order to strengthen their squad for the Gauteng Stream of the 2015/16 ABC Motsepe League.
The Soweto Starlings will be hosting trials from August 24 to August 26 and will be looking for a goalkeeper with experience, a natural left back as well as players who can play left wing, right wing or striker.
The club’s administrative manager, David Bentel, outlined the selection criteria in an official press release stating the following:
"The accepted age range for this week's trials will be 16-23. Players must be ready to compete for positions in the ABC Motsepe League. The club is looking for Johannesburg based players and the players must have their own accommodation. Players from outside Johannesburg will be considered if exceptional and have accommodation. The club will not accept players who are accompanied by managers and agents as Yebo Yes United looks after our own players. Players must bring a certified copy of their ID as well as a certified copy of their football CV. Players must also bring their own kit. There is no trial fee payable to the club."
"Yebo Yes United offers players many opportunities but players will not be paid. We offer the opportunity to play full seasons of competitive ABC Motsepe League football as well as SAFA Nedbank Cup knockout football action and tournaments, we recently participated in the Steven Pienaar Tournament where we made the finals. We also play friendlies and warm ups against the Orlando Pirates first team giving players exposure into the Orlando Pirates set up and meeting of the Orlando Pirates staff and personnel."
"Trials will commence at Diepkloof Recreation Centre Zone 6 next to Funda Centre and will be held on the 24th, 25th and 26th of August 2015. Players must arrive half an hour before training which will commence at 15:30 pm," Bentel said.
