M. WANDERERS FACE SA AMAZULU IN ROYAL CUP

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

MBABANE – Giants Manzini Wanderers are set to test their resolve against South Africa’s Absa Premiership side Amazulu.


The maroon and white outfit have received an invitation to feature in a one-day tournament in Durban on July 25. The tournament has been organised by the Royal Trust of Zimbabwe that had initially invited the side to another event back home last year. They resolved to stage a tournament in the neighbouring country.


Confirming the latest developments, Wanderers CEO Pat Mahlalela said the team would leave with the ladies team that would play against their counterparts from Durban.
“We’ve agreed in principle to honour the tournament, as we still need to tie up a few loose ends.


“The plan is to leave a day before the tournament, but we’ll communicate the logistics once everything is in place. We understand some supporters might want to travel with the team,” said Mahlalela.
Reports suggest expenses of the trip will be catered for by the hosts. It could not be immediately ascertained if there would be cash incentives involved, but trophies and medals were guaranteed.
“It is a great opportunity for us to prepare for the new season.


“We will release the finer details of the arrangement in due course,” said Mahlalela.
Wanderers are in a bid to build a formidable side ahead of the new campaign, as they continue their chase for a major trophy in 13 years. They recently beat Manzini Sundowns by 2-0 to win the Bible Society Cup.


Meanwhile, Amazulu, who finished ninth on the charts in the recently-ended campaign, have started bolstering their squad ahead of the new campaign. In the game against Wanderers, they are set to parade some of the signees who include Moeneeb Josephs, who used to play for Orlando Pirates and Bidvest Wits, as well as Argentina-born striker, Emiliano Tade, among others. Some of their current key players include the legendary Siyabonga Nomvethe, Micheal Morton and Ovidy Karuru from Zimbabwe.
