Birds Complete Preseason Training 11/08/03
The Moroka Swallows squad travelled to the Limpopo province last weekend where they played their final preseason friendly matches against fellow Premier Soccer League (PSL) teams Dynamos and Black Leopards.

Although the Birds were beaten 4-0 by Dynamos on Saturday, the team management are not too concerned given that the side they put out was very much an experimental line-up, including two trialists and a plethora of youngsters.

The game against Lidoda Duvha on Sunday also resulted in a loss, this time 3-2, although there were some positive aspects to come out of the game - particularly new Zimbabwean striker Alois Ngwerume, who scored on his debut for the Beautiful Birds. The other goal came via the boot of last season's top scorer Lucas Sebona.

These two games gave the management one last chance to look at all the players before the serious action begins with the SAA Supa 8 clash against Golden Arrows this Saturday.

Team manager Bennet Mtshali is quietly confident that the Birds can get their season off to a flyer by going all the way in the SAA competition:

"Obviously with both Chiefs and Pirates out of the competition our path to the final will be a little easier, but we can definitely not afford to take the other teams lightly.

"We will be taking it one game at a time, starting with Golden Arrows, who are a very capable side" Mtshali cautioned.

Good news for Swallows supporters is that they expect to see top striker Shaun Permall back in action fairly soon as he will be back in training as of tomorrow (Tuesday).

Meanwhile former Pirates midfielder Goodman Mazibuko did not make the trip with the rest of the Swallows players this weekend, but the Bird's management are still keen to sign the player and are currently in negotiations with him.
