Cape Town Defender At Celtic

The Siya crew can reveal that Bloemfontein Celtic have young defender Thapelo Nyongo on trial with the side.

The 18-year-old central defender is from the Old Mutual Academy and is looking to follow in the footsteps of Mark Mayambela, who was signed by Siwelele from the same outfit.

He started training on Monday and no decision has yet been taken on whether he will be given a professional contract and realise his dream of playing topflight football.

He told the crew, “It’s been a bit challenging because I’ve had to adjust to the weather here, but at least I’m getting used to it now.

"They’ve started using the second team to evaluate me and if I improve, I will then be drafted into the senior team senior set-up. I was sent here by my coach, George Dearnaley, and I hope to make it.”
