Wits Ready For Big Local Youth Tournament

It appears Wits' youth development structures are continuing to grow from strength to strength. Earlier this year Wits' U17 team beat their Kaizer Chiefs counterparts 3-0 in the Safa national championships.

The club also has a strong connection with Danish giants, Brondby, and Wits U19s will be flying out to play in the prestigious Lyngby Cup in late July.

In addition, the club also have the highly-rated teenager, Liam Jordan, in their ranks. The young attacking midfielder is touted to have a very promising career in future at professional level.

Nonetheless, Wits U17s will have another opportunity to show their qualities when they take part in the Engen Knockout Challenge later this month.

The tournament generally involves top junior teams with the likes of Kaizer Chiefs, Mamelodi Sundowns, Moroka Swallows and SuperSport United all taking part.

Nonetheless, Clever Boys Head of Academy Affairs, Glen Salmon, believes the U17 side are taking shape nicely ahead of the tournament. The team recently appointed a new coach to take charge of the team.

Salmon said, “Our U17 team is doing well in the league and they are forming into a strong unit. The team has recently been strengthened by our new coach, Cesar Maphala, who is settling in well and I see that the players have taken to him nicely.”

The renowned Engen Knockout Challenge will get underway from 27 June starting in Port Elizabeth.
