Team Manager: Mr. Quinton Jettoo

Firstly I would like to acknowledge the United supporters who travelled to our home (away) match against Kaizer Chiefs. We need your continued support throughout the season ahead.

Let me also congratulate the entire technical and playing staff for a job well done. Now we look to Bloemfontein Celtic, for whom I have a healthy respect. I must salute their supporters who I am sure will come in their numbers looking for their team’s first win in 2008. One thing for certain they will rally behind their team regardless of the result. This behaviour should be a lesson for all supporters countrywide.

To Celtic’s coach, Mitch Da Avry welcome back to the country. No doubt he has assembled a good team and will be tough opponents against the best on their turf. I am also aware that they will come out seeking their first points which makes for a tough but a likely entertaining game.

In relation to our team’s preparations for this clash, a big plus is the team spirit amongst the players and are all focused on winning a starting place in the line up come Sunday. I am also impressed with the work ethic between the coach and the players. What is noticeable at training is that the players have adapted to Igesund’s methods and the future looks very bright for the “Team of Choice” It is obvious that the coach has a huge but pleasurable headache in having to select a travelling squad.

To our supporters transport as been made available to Bloemfontein, I appeal to all our supporters to take advantage of the offer and make the trip. Remember you are our team’s 12th man.


“Team of Choice” Manager, Mr. Qunitin Jettoo
