Amazulu are ready for a competitive run out during this weekend’s Premiers Cup.

The KZN team had the luck of the draw on their side as they were the only side to progress directly to the semi-finals of the tournament where they will play the winner from the quarter-final between Real Kings and Uthongathi FC at the King Zwelithini Stadium on Sunday.

Usuthu left-winger, Simphiwe Lumkwana is a fan of the tournament and believes it is the perfect springboard to build momentum ahead of the 2018/2019 campaign.

“It is important because we are building a foundation, so if we win then we have something that we can take into the upcoming season,” Lumkwana said.

“It’s a good feeling to be drawn into the semi-finals but we are looking forward to play two games on the day which is the semis and the final.” Lumkwana said.

Lumkwana believes that a successful season can only be achieved with a sense of togetherness in the squad.

“I would say first of all where there’s unity, God commands a blessing. So I think, in football it’s a team sport, so obviously we must have unity so that we can be able to achieve great things,” Lumkwana said.

He says his new team mates have settled in well and will add plenty of value at the club.

Amazulu completed the signings of Marc van Heerden, Nhlanhla Vilakazi, Moneeb Josephs and Argentine, Emiliano Tade.

“So far it’s going well, we getting to know the way we must play. I think it’s going well for us, in terms of getting to know each other and unity and you know there were lots of players who were playing here last season that are still here and the new guys are settling in well,” added Lumkwana.
