Midfield maestro thrown Mthatha Bucks lifeline

2016-08-17 06:00

THE FORMER Eastwood Secondary School pupil­ and well-travelled Enver Wiltwer has been thrown another lifeline by Mthatha Bucks.

The former Free State Stars and Chippa United­ player confirmed he will be joining the national first division side in the Eastern Cape.

Wiltwer says he is happy to play soccer again after spending months with local amateur outfit, Macomanis.

The midfield maestro says his level of fitness is up scratch because he has kept active by playing for the local team.

“I am very fit and sharp because I played for my brother’s team that is affiliated in the local league. Joining them kept me active, fit and I played on weekends in local fixtures, which kept me sharp.

“I am not saying I’m just going to walk into the starting line-up when my new season starts with Mthatha Bucks, but my fitness level or ‘rustiness’ won’t be an issue.

“I am prepared to fight for the jersey, impress the coach and contribute positively to my teammates­ so that we take the team to the next level.”

Rumours are also doing the rounds in local soccer circles suggesting that another Eastwood player, Steven “Scara” Tony, might be joining Wiltwer at Mthatha Bucks.

Bucks owner Simthembile Ntlantsana confirmed recently that his team is recruiting a handful of players from around the country, but refused to reveal names.

Ntlantsana says his priority is to combine experience­ and new young talent in order to settle down in the NFD and later fight for promotion.
