Moonsamy makes Santos switch
Santos are delighted to be able to announce yet another signing ahead of the new National First Division season in former Chippa United defender Martin Moonsamy. The 26-year-old, who made a name for himself with Stars of Africa, has also featured for the likes of Bidwest Wits, where he played in their SAFA Second Division side, as well as with FC AK, where he spent three seasons playing in the NFD, before being snapped up by the Chilli Boys. A return to FC AK was to follow before a switch to United FC for the recently completed campaign. Now with Santos, the right-back, who can also play in the centre of defence, told thepeoplesteam.co.za, he is looking forward to this new chapter in his career. Upon signing with the club he said: "It feels good to be here. The atmosphere in the team is high and from what I have seen so far, Coach Abrahams is building a good team!" He added: "The only objective I have is to win the league and get promotion and from the type of players I see here, it should be a good season." He added: "The spirit is high, we have a quality coach and in each and every position there is quality, which is important." By Trevor Kramer

Sigwebela signs for The People's Team
Joining a raft of new players to have signed professional forms with Santos is former FC Buffalo left-back Mhlengi Sigwebela. The 23-year-old, who also counts FC Bootlaces, Nathi Lions and Atlie FC as his previous clubs, is excited by the prospect of joining an ambitious Santos side that have once again set their sights on securing promotion to the ABSA Premiership, having come agonisingly close over the past two seasons. The talented defender spoke to thepeoplesteam.co.za after training on Tuesday. He said: "It feels good to have signed; I'm very happy. "What I can say is that I am here to work and to help the team to the PSL; that is my ambition." When quizzed about his experience at the club thus far, Sigwebela added: "The training has been very competitive as everyone is working hard to be ready for the season. "There are a lot of quality players here but for me there is no pressure that I can't handle and I am just focusing on playing well and impressing the coach." He added: "I am really enjoying myself; it is like I am home and we are a family." By Trevor Kramer

"Hopefully I can come in and make a difference and help the team." He added: "I haven't been here long but already it feels like home. "My ambition for the season is to help Santos get promotion as I really would like to see them back up there (in the PSL) as it would be a good for everyone at Santos and for Cape Town soccer as well."

Santos hand contracts to Kowalski and Rayners
Santos is once again delighted to be able to unveil a brace of additions to the People's Team squad for the upcoming 2014/15 National First Division season. Joining Chad Pottier and Sthembele Ngcamu in signing pro forms are Vodacom graduates Dean Kowalski and Iqraam Rayners. The pair, both just 18 year of age, have impressed in recent seasons in the SAFA Second Division, and following their equally impressive performances at the 2014 Under 19 Metropolitan Cup, these talented youngsters have been drafted by new Head Coach Farouk Abrahams. Speaking to thepeoplesteam.co.za after training on Friday, both Kowalski and Rayners revealed their excitement at having signed on the dotted line for Santos. Kowalski said: "It feels great to have signed. It hasn't really hit me yet but it feels great at training, the way training is more serious and how the players also see you." Commenting on working with Coach Abrahams, the young star added: "Fortunately for me I've been with the coach before (when he was coach of the Vodacom side) so we sort of have a good relationship already which I feel is a must have between coach and player. "And on a one-on-one level he really is motivational; he knows how to bring the best out of a player; always encouraging you at training and giving you freedom. He allows you to make mistakes and to rectify them yourself so you don’t make the same mistakes again in the future." He concluded: "The atmosphere in training has been incredible with a very young, lively squad. I'm up for the challenge. I want to keep improving and learning from the more experienced players." Rayners, who has also come through the Santos Academy, revealed: "I'm very happy to sign with the first team. "It's great for my soccer development as it means I get to pick up more experience working with the older guys. "For me it was a little bit unexpected but at the same time it is great to know you are rewarded in life for all the hard work you put in!" He added: "Coach Abrahams has said he's been impressed with my performances in training and has encouraged me to keep working hard to make the team - and the players are also very encouraging as well. It has been great so far!" By Trevor Kramer

Pottier signs for Santos
Santos Football Club have strengthened their goalkeeping department with the acquisition of former Sundowns stopper Chad Pottier. The 23-year-old, who began his football journey with Sydenham Barnsley and Westville Academy, was snapped up by Golden Arrows as a 17-year-old. His stock rose with Abafana Bes'thende and following two exceptional seasons with their reserve side, Pottier was off again, this time to Mamelodi Sundowns where he again played reserve team football. But with the departure of Lee Langeveldt to Milano United this season, Santos were determined to provide the experienced Pa Dembo Touray with serious competition between the poles, signing Pottier to push him all the way for a starting berth. Speaking to thepeoplesteam.co.za after training on Thursday, Pottier revealed his delight at having sign for the Cape-based side. He said: "I'm very happy, I'm delighted to have signed my first professional contract." When quizzed about his ambitions for the season ahead, the young keeper added: "First, I'd like to learn from the other goalkeepers because I'm still young in goalkeeping years. "Pa is obviously an experienced keeper, having played overseas." Pottier continued: "I've still got a lot to learn but hopefully I'll be pushing for a place in the team because I'm not here to sit on the bench. "I just want to keep learning, and keep improving." Reflecting on his time at Santos thus far, the determined young goal minder concluded: "There is a good vibe around here and everyone is friendly but at the same time everyone is very competitive and they want to do better and better each and every training session. "It's great to be part of a professional structure like that where everyone is striving towards the same goal - promotion to the PSL. By Trevor Kramer

Santos snap up FC Buffalo right-back
Santos are delighted to announce the signing of former FC Buffalo right-back Sthembele Ngcamu. The 21-year-old, who began his football career as a youngster with Westville Academy before joining Bootlaces Academy, was then snapped up by African Wanders after some impressive consistent performances. But following last season with Vodacom side FC Buffalo, where the highlight for the club was facing Kaizer Chiefs in the Last 16 of the Nedbank Cup, where they narrowly lost 2-1, the talented defender has opted to swap the Eastern Cape for Cape Town and the National First Division. Speaking to thepeoplesteam.co.za after training on Thursday, Ngcamu revealed his delight at having signed a deal with the Lansdowne-based side. He said: "I am very happy to have signed for Santos and I can't wait to start the season." Ngcamu explained that following a starring performance in a pre-season friendly against Vasco Da Gama, where the match ended 2-2, Head Coach Farouk Abrahams told the player he had impressed and implored him to keep working hard to secure a place in the Santos squad for this season. "I played well in the friendly with Vasco and after the match Coach Farouk told me I had done well." Revealing his ambitions for the season, the right-back added: "This season, I hope to be able to secure my place in the squad to help the team to win promotion to the Premiership." Ngcamu also revealed that he is determined to impress National selectors this season in a bid to force his way into the reckoning for the South African Under 23 side. "I haven't represented my country yet, but I am still young so if I play well this season them maybe I will get a chance to represent the Under 23s. "But for now I will just be focusing as hard as I can on helping Santos this season to get the club back to where it belongs, in the PSL. By Trevor Kramer
