Collegians gear up for Jaguars promotion decider

2011-08-31 00:00

WHILE the perennial KwaZulu-Natal Premier Division league champions, College Rovers and arch-rivals Durban Collegians, prepare for Saturday’s 3 pm Castle Murray Cup final at Crusaders’ ground in Durban North, Maritzburg Collegians are preparing for a “final” of far-reaching importance for the century-old PMB institution.

Head coach Rinier Bosman’s squad are readying themselves for the promotion/relegation match against Jaguars at the Durban side’s home ground in Sydenham. Kick-off is at noon on Saturday September 10.

PMB Collegians, winners of the KZN First Division, had the option of choosing to play for promotion to the top league against the Premier Division’s bottom-placed club Jaguars.

Collegians president Tony Day told The Witness yesterday that the club has been fortunate to have players who are maintaining their match-fitness as the big day looms ever closer.

“Most of the team, in fact 10 in all, are in the Natal Junior Clubs side and they have been with Rinier — who is assistant coach of the Junior Clubs squad — hard in training for [tonight] 6.30 pm match against Natal Duikers at College Rovers’ King’s Park 3 ground …” said Day.
