The inaugural Nedbank Ke Yona Team search will escalate this weekend when the 30 bidding soccer hopefuls head to boot camp, on Saturday, July 20.
The 30-man squad will be drilled as they aim to secure a place in the Nedbank Ke Yona Team that will face the 2013 Nedbank Cup champions, Kaizer Chiefs, at the start of the 2013/14 Nedbank Cup season.
Nedbank’s initiative to promote young talent is already proving to be a success, with Ke Yona Team hopeful, Kyle Davids, having been linked to Orlando Pirates, as previously reported by Soccer-Laduma.
Sydney Mbhele, Nedbank’s Divisional Executive for Integrated Marketing, says that the amount of entrants is a promising indication.
In a statement released by Nedbank, Mbhele said, “The thousands of entrants who took part in the trials has been a clear demonstration that South Africans are ready to make things happen for themselves.”
