TEAM OF CHOICE SNAP UP SKELEM FROM STELLENBOSCH
17 August 2021
Maritzburg United have signed an exciting attacking player in Lelethu Skelem from Stellenbosch FC, with Judas Moseamedi set to move in the opposite direction.
Pacey, mobile and with an eye for goal, Skelm will bring energy and industry to the Maritzburg front-line.
Having turned 23-years-old in May, Skelm established himself as an exciting young prospect during his two seasons in the top flight with Stellenbosch, as well as a championship-winning campaign in the First Division with the Cape side.
The forward plans to flourish in Pietermaritzburg and has revealed high ambitions.
"I've received a nice warm welcome from the players, the coaches and the staff," Skelem told the Maritzburg United media department.
"I'm 100 percent fully focussed and happy to work with coach Ernst Middendorp, more especially as an international coach. There's that space for him to teach me more about football.
"I will do my best for the team to help us get good results. To be in the top eight and to fight for the top four, that's the most important goal for me and also for the team."
Judas Moseamedi departs after two-and-a-half seasons with Maritzburg, having scored some crucial, memorable goals in his time. The big man’s commitment and selfless attitude were appreciated by all at the club. The Team of Choice thanks Judas for his outstanding efforts and we wish him all the best.
Maritzburg’s other new signings are Alfred Ndengane, Zukile Kewuti, Lifa Hlongwane, Brandon Theron, Richard Zumah, Rowan Human and goalkeeping trio Brylon Petersen, Tato Lesoma and Renaldo Leaner.
