'Birds' Reserves lose to Benoni

The Moroka Swallows reserve team lost 0-2 to the Benoni Premier United reserves, in a Reserve league match played at Germiston Stadium on Monday afternoon.

Swallows head coach, Gavin Hunt took charge of the young 'Birds' team, that was comprised of players from the Under-19 team.

The 'Beautiful Birds' Head of Development, Paul Habib, told the official Swallows website that the match served as preparation for the upcoming Bayhill tournament, to be held in Cape Town on Thursday, April 5.

Hunt was very impressed with the players, who gave a good account of themselves against a professional United outfit.

The 'Birds' coach has already identified six players that he plans to use in the first team next season.

The U19 team will be leaving for the tournament on the 3rd, arriving in Cape Town on the 4th April, under the watchful eye of development coaches, Joel 'Ace' Mnini and Andries 'Chaka-Chaka' Mpondo.
