Tuks Churns Out The Talent

Any team who has been dominant in a specific tournament is sure to have many talented players in their ranks and the statement could not suit UP-Tuks any better.
 
The Pretoria students have claimed back to back Varsity Football titles in 2013 and 2014, respectively, but were knocked out of this year's competition by neighbours and Tshwane rivals TUT.
 
There have been many success stories coming from Tuks, with the likes of Botshelo Mfulwane and Lucky Mathosi having made the step up from the University side into the AmaTuks PSL setup.
 
Their squad is lettered with talented players who can easily make the step up to the higher leagues but we have identified five players who are sure to go far in the game!
 
Robin Swartz
 
The midfielder's leadership ability is second to none and he returned with a bang this year after missing out most of the 2014 campaign due to injury. He is a hard grafting player who gets around the field with ease and can read the game brilliantly.
 
Nicholas Killas
 
A hard tackling defender who puts his body on the line whenever he is required to. His technical skills and tactical awareness made him stand out from his peers as one of the future stars to emerge from the Tuks ranks.
 
Lawrence Ntswane
 
The lanky defender poses an aerial threat in attacking set pieces and has been the rock of the Tuks defence. He has stood up to the best the Universities has to offer and came out with flying colours. His height is a definite advantage as he can easily snuff out any aerial threats.
 
Lindsay Stowman
 
The pacy wing has been quietly going about his business and seemingly flew under the radar for most of the competition. However, his strength lies in his versatility as he can play any position. He is quick, evasive and knows where the target is.
 
Jeremiah Nkwana
 
Arguably the best dead-ball specialist in the country at the moment, his educated left boot can score from anywhere on the park but he is more than just that. He has speed to burn and natural flair which any PSL team will benefit from. No words can describe his ability and we are sure we will see him in the PSL very very soon.
 
The Tuks Academy is doing the world of good for football in South Africa and their conveyor belt of talent seems endless.
