Arrows capture three Uthongathi players


Golden Arrows have concluded the signing of three Uthongathi players in their preparations for the 2021/22 season.

Abafana Bes’thende have signed Sibonelo Cele, Saziso Magawana and Ntsikelelo Nxadi from the Cane Cutters.

Nxadi, who previously played for Happy Wanderers in the ABC Motsepe KwaZulu Natal League, is expected to replace Nkosinathi Sibisi in the central defence role.

Sibisi is linked with Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates.

Cele is another player who was influential for Uthongathi last season and he will be hoping to continue his rich vein of form.

Meanwhile, Magawana who was one the shinning stars for Uthongathi, plays as an attacking midfielder.

A reliable source in the Arrows camp has confirmed that the three players are currently training with the Durban-based side, under the watchful eye of Lehlohonolo Seema.

Last week, Uthongathi FC announced the departure of the three players and wished them well on their future endeavors.

Arrows are expected to unveil the three players in the coming days.
