NedbankCup : 2017 Ke Yona Team Search Final Squad and PSL Draft

AFTER months of training and preparation, the final 18-man squad for the 2017 Nedbank Ke Yona match was announced at the Nedbank headquarters in Sandton last night.

Nedbank Ke Yona team coaches Shakes Mashaba, Owen da Gama, Mike Mangena and Khabo Zondo assisted by five other coaches behind the scene have selected their final 18-man 2017 squad

As if happened last season the selected players were drafted into the 16 PSL teams but the was a slight change this season as the 2016 finalist both got two players each as a reward for reaching the final

Each drafted player will be get an opportunity to training and be accessed by the PSL side for a one-month long trial.

“There is something different about these boys, they are so dedicated and talented. I think this is our best group yet, I believe they will do well against SuperSport,” said da Gama.

“You can see when you are working with them that these boys are dedicated to what they are doing. They are eager to learn and they always work very hard during training sessions.” said Shakes Mashaba

History was written yesterday when Aubrey Modiba cousin Justin Modiba made it to the last 18 Squad and he was very emotional.

Aubrey Modiba himself a product of Nedbank Ke Yona Team search is a success story as he played for Mpumalanga Black Aces, Cape Town City and now he is doing duty for Supersport United. He is a beacon of hope for many players including his Cousin.

They will take on the reigning Nedbank Cup champions, SuperSport United, next month.
