Matsatsantsa have taken a new route in terms of their recruitment policy in recent times, where instead of bringing in marquee signings as in years gone by, the club have now put their faith in in the vibrance of youth.

It is this very policy that has seen the club part ways with long-serving defender Clayton Daniels, who couldn’t agree a long-term contract with game time hard to come by this season. The youthful duo of Luke Fleurs and Thatayaone Dithlokwe have been coach Kaitano Tembo's preferred partnership.

Now, the club have confirmed via their social media channels that they have further strengthened in terms of youth with the addition of five new players.

“SuperSport United would like to announce the signing of Bidvest Wits trio Sinenjongo Mkiva (19), Samukelo Xulu (19) Brynn Deeley (18) Keenan Bezuidenhout (18) from Ubuntu Cape Town and Thalente Mbatha (20) from Highlands Park” the club wrote.

SuperSport get their Diski Challenge underway against Orlando Pirates this weekend.

The club’s first team meanwhile, will have to bide their time after their DStv Premiership match against Bloemfontein Celtic was postponed due to CAF Confederations Cup commitments.
