Aces put newbies into play

The long list of new recruits include the former Golden Arrows players, Mzivukile Tom and Thanduyise Khuboni, Zimbabwean international, Peter Moyo and former Moroka Swallows player, Roger da Costa.

The home team have already resumed training for the 2014/15 season and these new players will probably be given an opportunity to show their worth. 

“The team have bought many players whom we think will contribute meaningfully to the successes.

“Our coach, Clive Barker is very impressed with them and if what we see during training sessions is anything to go by, our supporters and opposition are in for a great treat this season,” said Aces spokesman, Gordon Masondo. 

He said they intend on finishing well on the log standing and to take home one or two trophies.
“We have done well in the past season and managed to finish within the top eight. This time around we want to add some silverware to our cabinet. 

“I don’t see any reason why we can’t achieve this with all the talented players we have recruited,” Masondo went on.

Aces’ first test is against the KwaZulu-Natal-based Amazulu, who have also been impressive in the past season.

The two will meet during the Charity Showdown sponsored by e.tv on July 19.

“This is a great test for us to see whether the boys will be able to handle the pressure or not. We only have a few days to prepare before the new season kicks off, so we need to put the players, especially the new recruits, to the test,” elaborated Masondo.

Just when the new season kicks off, Aces will take on Kaizer Chiefs in the MTN 8 on a date still to be confirmed.

The home team has kept most of their senior players such as Thabang Rooi, Mbulelo Mabizela, Clifford Ngobeni, Dennis Masina, Onyekachi Okonkwo and Mabhuti Khanyeza.
