Skelem joins Maritzburg


Maritzburg United have signed Lelethu Skelem from Stellenbosch on a permanent deal.

Skelm has established himself as an exciting young prospect during his two seasons in the top-flight with Stellenbosch, as well as a championship-winning campaign in the First Division with the Cape side.

The 23-years-old winger plans to flourish in Pietermaritzburg and has revealed high ambitions.

“I’ve received a nice warm welcome from the players, the coaches and the staff,” said Skelem.

“I’m 100 percent fully focussed and happy to work with coach Ernst Middendorp, more especially as an international coach. There’s that space for him to teach me more about football.

“I will do my best for the team to help us get good results. To be in the top eight and to fight for the top four, that’s the most important goal for me and also for the team,” concluded Skelem.
