Official: Maritzburg Sign Petersen

Maritzburg United have confirmed the signing of former Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Brylon Petersen.

The 25-year-old was one of the seven players who Chiefs let go as part of their squad revamp and he has now once again linked up with Ernst Middendorp.

“It feels good to be here, I was here with coach Ernst before – in 2013 my matric year, I’m from Pietermaritzburg,” Brylon told the club’s media department.

“It feels the same, but with a different aspect now because I am pushing to play, pushing to win a place in the team.It’s a bit different, but the general atmosphere is the same. The guys have welcomed me, the coach has welcomed me, so I’m excited for what’s ahead.

“There’s no need for adjustments, I know the surroundings, I know the area, the people within the city so I’m sure they will welcome back home to the Team of Choice.”

Maritzburg have been looking to strengthen their goalkeeping department, and have been assessing goalkeepers, including former Ajax Cape Town and national U23 goalkeeper Darren Johnson, as well as Renaldo Leaner, another former Ajax graduate.
