The Usuthu U17 squad arrived in Johannesburg at the beginning of the week to prepare for the 2015 Engen Champ of Champs, which begins this weekend in Pretoria at the Lucas Moripe Stadium.
Coach Samkelo Ngubane’s side will have their training sessions at Leeuwkop Correctional Services fields prior to their opening match against Harmony Academy on Friday at 11:30am.
“The boys are enjoying themselves and doing well so far, surely they will be well acclimatised a bit to conditions by the time the tournament kicks off on Friday,” said AmaZulu Head of Development, Steve Bezuidenhout.
On Tuesday afternoon the young Usuthu played to a 2-1 win against Shumba Stars. Today’s activity will see them do some recovery sessions at their camp base as well as a light team building session at Gold Reef City.
