18 January 2018 – The South African U17 Men’s National Football team (Amajimbos), have moved to Bloemfontein, Free State where they will conclude their first training camp of the year following the last minute cancellation of their trip to Swaziland.
The team arrived in the Free State capital late last night and will continue with their initial program after Bloemfontein Celtics agreed to play two practise matches against them.
Amajimbos will play the Celtics MultiChoice Team today at 4pm at Dr Molemela Stadium and their U-19 team on Saturday, 20 January 2018 before breaking camp on Sunday morning.
“We are very grateful and would like to extent our gratitude to the SAFA Free State together with Bloemfontein Celtics for accommodating us at such a short notice,” said coach Molefi Ntseki.
“It is very important that we stay on track with the program we have designed as we have certain milestones to achieve within certain time frames,” he added.
“We want the players to understand that adaptation is a big part of life/football but more importantly, we want them to start adapting to a certain style of play we want for this age group. We have a lot of work to do this year as we prepare for our international tournaments,” said Ntseki.
