Marumo Gallants welcome 4 trialists including ex-Kaizer Chiefs duo

Marumo Gallants are assessing four new players at training, including two who previously played for Kaizer Chiefs.

Bahlabane Ba Ntwa are returning to the top-flight after successfully purchasing the DStv Premiership status of Moroka Swallows. 

The club also moved to Bloemfontein where they will play their home games at the Dr. Petrus Molemela Stadium with larger fixtures set to be held at Toyota Free State Stadium.

The club has formally announced the appointment of Dylan Kerr as their new head coach.

The team is presently getting ready for the upcoming season, combining Gallants players with Swallows players who have been retained.

Former Chiefs defender Moleko is hoping to get back to action after being unattached for 12 months following his departure from Maritzburg United at the end of the 2022/23 campaign.

Just after signing for the Team of Choice, the 34-year-old defender Moleko suffered a leg break that prevented him from making any appearances for the club.

Mahlatsi, another former Chiefs player, was with Chippa United in the second half of the 2023/24 season. Despite battling injuries, he managed 11 appearances in a space of four months. 

However, Chippa opted not to activate the one-year option on his contract, leaving the 25-year-old attacking midfielder searching for a new club ahead of the upcoming 2024/25 campaign.

Meanwhile, Lukhubeni is understandably still in the books of Mamelodi Sundowns and has previously had five loan spells – Tshakuma Tsha Madzivhandila, Sekhukhune United, Maritzburg United, Moroka Swallows and Cape Town Spurs.

Gymah, who was one of Sekhukhune United’s departures this window, is also hoping to secure a new home. Former Orlando Pirates centre-back last kicked the ball when Babina Noko beat SuperSport United on 12 November 2023.
