Pirates who were drawn in Group B alongside Rosina Sedibane Sports School, Bidvest Wits, and Shumba Football Development, have their sights on clinching the title, though mentor, Augusto Palacios has admitted it won’t be an easy task, for the young Buccaneers.

“People may look at the names in the groups and think that some teams will have it easy. Ours will be a very tough group. Rosina Sedibane are regular tournament finalists, Bidvest Wits are a PSL academy side, and Shumba Football Development has great structures,” noted Palacios on the Bucs website.

“We didn’t play in the tournament last year so to come back in with such a group is going to be the perfect test for us.”

“The other groups are also very well balanced with good teams in each so you can’t predict what will happen or who will go through. What I know is that our players will need to be at their best and execute the plan that we will have,” he added.

Other teams participating in the tournament are: Lawley Secondary School, Moroka Swallows, Mpumalanga Black Aces, University of Pretoria, Johannesburg Secondary School, FTF Academy, Jomo Cosmos, Midas Football Academy.

 The School of Excellence, Kaizer Chiefs, Mamelodi Sundowns, and SuperSport United round off the participants.
