Highlands Park sign TUT Varsity Football captain Elliot Seema


Seema led Tshwane University of Technology to their second championship after beating Wits University in the final in Johannesburg last week.

The defender shortly afterwards started training with the Lions of the North with a view to impress Da Gama and earn himself a return to the PSL, after he was on the books of Polokwane City’s reserve team last year.

‘ODG’ has since confirmed that the 25-year-old centre-back has been added to the club’s roster for this season, while they are also still assessing two more Varsity Cup players.

“We have signed the captain of TUT, but that will still be officially dealt with by the club. I think he’s a top prospect,” said the former Bafana Bafana assistant coach on Tuesday.

“We’ve got two more players from the Varsity Cup that are training with us and, unfortunately with the games that have come so thick and fast, we had to concentrate on the team that’s going to play.

“Tomorrow [Wednesday] we have a friendly against Maccabi FC and we will obviously have a look at those players and the ones that didn’t get a run [against Chiefs].”

Meanwhile, a source close to the player has insisted Seema has not yet penned a deal with the Tembisa-based outfit, as he contnues to merely train at their Balfour Park base.
