Polokwane City FC revamps squad for 2024/25 PSL season by releasing Given Mashikinya, Lucky Baloyi, and Obed Thuto

As Polokwane City FC gears up for the 2024/25 PSL season, they’ve decided to revamp their squad, letting go of three players.

Player Departures: Who’s Leaving?

Notably absent from the team’s pre-season training were Given Mashikinya, Lucky Baloyi, and Obed Thuto, signaling their exit from the club.

Reliable sources have confirmed that Polokwane City has indeed released these three players.

Given Mashikinya’s Contribution

Midfielder Given Mashikinya, who joined Polokwane City on a one-year deal after leaving Sekhukhune United, had a productive season.

He started in 28 matches and netted two goals, showcasing his value to the team.

Limited Playtime for Baloyi and Thuto

In contrast, Lucky Baloyi and Obed Thuto saw limited action last season.

Baloyi made only two starts and three substitute appearances, while Thuto’s sole start was in the Nedbank Cup.

Strategic Moves for a Stronger Squad

The club’s decision to release these players hints at a strategic overhaul aimed at strengthening the squad for the upcoming season.

As Polokwane City continues their pre-season preparations, fans can look forward to more changes and additions to the roster.

Rising Stars on the Radar

Meanwhile, the spotlight is on two of Polokwane City’s promising talents, Oswin Appollis and Thabang Matuludi, who are attracting interest from top teams.

Matuludi’s Growing Appeal

Orlando Pirates, Sekhukhune United, and Stellenbosch FC are reportedly keen on securing Matuludi, a talented fullback recently called up to the COSAFA Cup squad.

Despite Stellenbosch FC’s bid being turned down by Polokwane City, the interest remains high.

Appollis: A National Asset

Bafana Bafana winger Oswin Appollis is also on the radar, with Kaizer Chiefs showing strong interest.

The incoming coach, Nasreddine Nabi, is believed to be a driving force behind their pursuit.

However, Polokwane City’s coach, Phuti Mohafe, regards Appollis as a “national asset” and prefers the player to explore opportunities abroad rather than transferring to domestic rivals.

Looking Ahead

As the new season approaches, Polokwane City FC’s roster developments continue to be a focal point, with fans eagerly anticipating how the team will shape up for a competitive 2024/25 campaign.
