Polokwane City Admit Lack Of Signings Almost Cost Them
Polokwane City aim at making significant signings for the new season
Polokwane City have admitted that the lack of experienced signings could have possibly cost them their PSL status.
Rise and Shine ended the season with 34 points following a 1-1 draw against Chippa United. This result meant that the Limpopo side finished only two spots above Ajax Cape Town and thus avoiding the prospect of having to compete in the play-offs to retain their PSL status, a fate that has since befallen the Urban Warriors.
“Luck was never with us throughout this season. In all honesty, there were games that we should have won and lost right at the death because we lacked experience,” said the club’s spokesperson Vusi Mthimane.
“This time we want to bring in the right signings, players with the right amount of experience to make us competitive. We learnt this because last year we did not make any signings and we only promoted a few development players which (were) not enough to take us all through the season.
“I want to assure the supporters that this season, we are going, that the orange ship will be stronger in the new season because we are going to the market to strengthen the team,” concluded the Mthimane.
Meanwhile, the Siya crew has reported that the Limpopo-based team has already set its sights on a Swaziland international midfielder by the name of Banele ‘Pupu’ Sikhondze.
According to sources, the club could agree to terms with the 24-year-old, who could be one of the first buys for the club when the July/ August transfer window opens.
