Bacela Joins AmaTuks

The University of Pretoria can confirm the sigining of striker Lennox Bacela for the 2015/2016 season.

"It's a great move and a good opportunity for me, especially since I know the type of people that I will be joining. I have a responsibility to guide the young boys in the club and I'm looking forward to the challenge. I don't think it will need any adjusting, it will not be fair to compare Tuks to Pirates looking at the history of the two teams. Ultimately there is no such thing as a small club, we all play in the same league and we can all win.

Studying further was one of the opportunities presented to me by Tuks. I have not decided what it is I want to study yet but it is most definitely something I want to explore.

Where ever I have played I have been expected to play football and deliver, I do not think it is any different at Tuks. I do not promise heaven and earth but the AmaTuks supporters can expect me to get on the field and play my heart out in every match. I am told the slogan for the season is "Wear Your Stripes with Pride" and that is what I intend to do. I hope to enjoy my stay in Hatfield," said Bacela.  

Bacela will be part of the AmaTuks contingent participating in the Mbombela pre-season tournament on 25 July 2015. The first match of the tournament is at 10h00 against Platinum Stars.
