Usuthu to revive scouting in KZN

Newly appointed AmaZulu Chief Scout, Boyzie Mngoma, needs no introduction to the Usuthu faithful having played a role in the early 2000s as a youth coach and contributing to the first team.

The 55 year old former SAFA Ethekwini selector told that he expects to begin a challenging journey on 1 December when he officially resumes his new duties.

“As much as it’s exciting, we’ll need to work aggressively to try and change the face of AmaZulu.

“We need to start recruiting vibrant players for the club, not that we don’t have them but we need to ensure that we don’t lose the best of what the province has to offer,” said Mngoma.

Top on the list for Mngoma is to establish and strengthen existing satellite clubs in and around KZN alongside Head of Development, Steve Bezuidenhout.

“We’re hoping to do a proper background check up on players before we bring them in so as to eliminate the long process of trials, relying on proper ways to monitor players for the first team and development structures.”

“It’s also good to note that AmaZulu has a coach that embraces the integration of youth with the first team in Steve Barker,” said Mngoma.

In the junior ranks the club appointed experienced former defender, Belux Bukasa Kasonga, as the U17 Team Manager.

The DRC-born player who starred in past Usuthu teams has been tasked with ploughing back his rich experience into the juniors while also equipping himself with coaching knowledge.
