The Siya crew can reveal that Old Mutual Academy FC youngster Tapelo Nyongo has been undergoing trials at AmaZulu as he seeks a contract in the professional ranks.

Nyongo, an 18-year-old central defender from Khayelitsha in Cape Town, has been highly impressive for the academy side, who campaign in the Vodacom League, and is thought to have a great future ahead of him.

The crew reported last year that he was on trial at Bloemfontein Celtic, where he trained with their reserve side, and was set to be invited for a second look. However, Usuthu have now acted fast to assess ‘Tower’, as he is affectionately known , who will be added to their squad next season if he impresses.

The news of his trial was confirmed by Old Mutual Academy coach George Dearnaley, who said, “Yes, Tapelo trained with AmaZulu last week, then attended the Nike Chance in Jo’burg, and is now going back to AmaZulu for a few more days.
