The 19-year-old, a product of the Nedbank Ke Yona talent search, is spending the month trying his luck with The Team of Choice, aiming to win a contract from the club.
“Firstly, I would like to thank the club and Nedbank for giving me such a great opportunity to be here (at Maritzburg United),” the Kimberly-born central midfielder said.
“I’m settling in very well at the club and the guys are very cool, the players and coach warmly welcomed me and I’m so grateful for that.”
The Hope United player was part of more than 300 young players who attended Nedbank Ke Yona talent search at Galeshewe Stadium. He says he has gained a lot during his first week at the club.
He continued: “So far I have learnt a lot at the club because at a highest level you have to be strong and tough. Even if you are energetic, you have to grind and up your game because at this level it’s not like where we are coming from. So you have to pick up your game.”
He concluded by encouraging other youngsters not to give up on pursuing their dreams but keep on pushing to reach their goals.
“I would like to say to other youngsters they must never give up," Ncanywa added. "They must always work hard for their dreams.
“Criticism will always be there whether you do good or bad, so you must always push yourself and stay away from all the bad habits.”
