PSL Eyes On Varsity Football

UP-Tuks' Richard Moremi believes that PSL clubs scouting and signing Varsity Football players has made the competition a lot stronger and more competitive.
 
The midfielder had a slight taste of what it takes become an elite player when he was fortunate to train with Supersport United for three months after being spotted at The School of excellence.
 
The Pretoria students boast two players, Botshelo Mfulwane and Lucky Mathosi, who are under contract with AMATUKS while the PSL side has also acquired the services of Thabo Mnyamane who represented NWU-Mafikeng in the inaugural Varsity Football tournament.
 
"This year we have seen that PSL teams have started scouting and some of the players who signed professional contracts can survive in there (in the PSL) and do pretty well," he said
 
Moremi came to the realisation he needed something to fall back on if his football career never went as planned and decided to leave training with the PSL outfit in favour of getting an education at the University of Pretoria.
 
It's a decision which worked in his favour as he is not only able to get a qualification but also caught the eye of UP-Tuks coach, Evangelos Vellios.
 
"I started training with them and I think he (Vellios) fell in love with me straight away. That’s how I made the Varsity Football squad, not only with my skills and talents but also with the motivation from a coach who pushed me," he added.
 
The level of competition in Varsity Football has definitely increased, which bodes well for the tournament going forward and also for the PSL sides who are always looking to bolster their squads with fresh, young talent.
 
The winger's quick thinking and quick feet has helped him sail around tough defenders and will be hoping that he too will join the likes of Mfulwane and Mathosi in the professional football arena.
