Pirates claim pre-season win over TS Galaxy

Orlando Pirates have continued their preparations for the new Absa Premiership season with a friendly victory over Nedbank Cup champions TS Galaxy in Rustenburg.

A first half goal from Luvuyo Memela proved the difference between the sides, as The Buccaneers wrap-up their North West camp with a win.

 

The team had also defeated another National First Division outfit, TS Sporting, 4-0 at the weekend.

 

Pirates will now head to Cape Town for three friendly games, and have also have fixture penciled in against Botswana side Township Rollers on July 20.

 

They will then take on Soweto rivals Kaizer Chiefs in the return of the Carling Black Label Cup on July 27 at the FNB Stadium.

 

Pirates are seeking to lift the Absa Premiership title for the first time since the 2011/12 season, and have finished runners-up in the last two campaigns behind Mamelodi Sundowns.   

 

They have not lifted a trophy of any sort since the 2014 Nedbank Cup.
