Mpumalanga Black Aces have bolstered their squad with a number of new players, including former Bafana Bafana striker Siyabonga Nontshinga.
The Jacob Sakala-coached side has brought in no less than seven players, mostly from the PSL. The team’s media liaison officer, Gordon Masondo, confirmed the NFD club’s signings with the Siya crew.
“Nontshinga is training with us. He will be with us on a six-month loan period. It’s him, Diyo Sibisi, Philani Khwela, Ronald Mohlaka, Zaid Patel, Roger Makume and Tshidiso Mosikidi. We are trying everything we can to make progress,” said Masondo.
Aces have made their intentions clear this season, on wanting to gain promotion to the PSL, and are seen as one of the NFD title contenders.
The team has lost just once in their 12 league games played to date, and with the experience of the new recruits, it will difficult to bet against the team winning promotion.
