Maritzburg United have recieved something of a boost after the Team of Choice won a four team tournament they hosted this past weekend.
The four teams involved in the event were Maritzburg United, Maritzburg City, Free State Stars and Golden Arrows. Ernst Middendorp's charges won the first semi-final 2-0 against Arrows.
In the second semi-final, Stars defeated City by a 1-0 scoreline. In the final, staged at the Harry Gwala Stadium in Pietermaritzburg, the Team of Choice eventually came through and won 1-0 against Stars.
This news was confirmed to the Siya crew by United reserve team coach, Dan Haswell. Some of Haswell's development players were also said to have taken part in the tournament.
He told the Siya crew, "Yes, we won the tournament after beating Free State Stars. It's a positive result for the team ahead of upcoming fixtures for the first team."
