Namibians conduct pre-season in Mother City


The coastal side that finished third in Division One last season has lined up matches against Santos, Ajax Cape Town and FC Cape Town, which has Brave Warriors defender Maleagi Ngarizemo on their books.

Woestyn are hoping to open their Mother City safari with a date against Ricardo Mannetti’s previous employers Santos’ reserve side today at Symphony Park in Belhar, before taking on the Santos first team at the same venue tomorrow and they will take on Ajax Cape Town at the Urban Warriors’ Ikamva ground on Saturday, before concluding their journey with a confrontation against National Division One Coastal Stream outfit FC Cape Town, next Monday.

The Walvis Bay outfit was invited by Santos to undertake a tour to the mother city after the two coastal teams signed a players’ exchange programme that would see players from Namib Woestyn being incorporated gradually into Santos’ junior structures.

The Namib Woestyn quartet of Imbert Izaaks, Leviano Melanie, Brian Simataa and Oris Thaniseb are already training with Santos.

While in Cape Town, some members of the team’s management will be taken through the ropes by their Santos counterparts on the finer points of football administration in modern times.
