Nomandela joins Mthatha Bucks

Phakaaathi Reporter

Mthatha Bucks have confirmed the signing of former Free State Stars, Mamelodi Sundowns and Cape Town City midfielder Luyolo Nomandela.

Luyola Nomandela, who has been clubless since he was released by Cape Town City at the end of last season, was training with Amathol’amnyama for several weeks and did enough to impress coach Ian Palmer and his technical team.

Mthatha Bucks general manager Luxolo Matikinca is optimistic that Nomandela will prove a significant boost to the squad.

“We are hoping that his experience will rub off the youngsters in the squad,” Matikinca told the club’s website.

“He is a talented lad who has a lot to offer Bucks and South African football at large. We wish him everything of the best and are looking forward to his immense contribution to the team.”

Nomandela’s arrival follows that of former FC Cape Town and University of Pretoria striker Lucky Mathosi, who was signed by the club last week.
