Official: Maritzburg Confirm Skelem

Maritzburg United have welcomed Lelethu Skelem to the club, after he officially joined from Stellenbosch.

Earlier today Stellenbosch confirmed the signing of Judas Moseamedi from Maritzburg, and now it is official that Skelem will be heading in the other direction.

The 23-year-old has spent his entire professional career at Stellies, having made his debut back in 2018, when the club was still in the National First Division.

He featured in 74 leagues games for Steve Barker’s team, scoring six goals.

“I’ve received a nice warm welcome from the players, the coaches and the staff,” Skelem told the Maritzburg United media department.

“I’m 100 percent fully focussed and happy to work with coach Ernst Middendorp, more especially as an international coach. There’s that space for him to teach me more about football. 

“I will do my best for the team to help us get good results. To be in the top eight and to fight for the top four, that’s the most important goal for me and also for the team.”

Maritzburg are away to Golden Arrows in their opening league match this weekend.
