Moroka Swallows' veteran defender Warren Lewis says that he is recovering well from the serious ankle injury he picked up in training. The ankle fracture caused Lewis to sit out the last six games of the season, and he was a frustrated spectator as his team surrendered the league title to Orlando Pirates.
While the rest of his team-mates are enjoying a well earned rest, the former Bafana Bafana squad man is currently undergoing physio and rehabilitation work. Lewis expects to be ready in time to join up with the rest of the squad for pre-season training on June 26, although he says that It he will start off by training only lightly before being able to engage in full contact training.
Lewis is confident that Swallows can carry on their good work from last season, and is determined that the Bird's can go all the way this time round. Warren is happy with the signings of Albert Kometsi, George Hummel and Rufus Mokoti, and feels that these new players will provide the much needed depth which the team lacked last season.
Although he admits that Jabu Mendu was in outstanding form during the last campaign, Lewis does not believe that his team will miss the Chiefs-bound midfielder too much, as there are class players like Peter Rabolele ready to fill the vacant position.
The hard man expects that Pirates will once again be the team that Swallows will have to overcome in order to achieve PSL glory, although he also thinks that next season could also be the year in which Chiefs finally get their act together.
Lewis is also determined to do well in the knockout competitions after his team failed to register any cup success last season and thereby restore glory to the Bird's faithful.
Do you have a get well message for Warren? ........
