Richards Bay to secure Magoola’s future with contract extension

Home » Richards Bay to secure Magoola’s future with contract extension

Richards Bay FC will exercise their option to extend goalkeeper Salim Magoola’s contract, keeping him at the club until at least June 2025.

The 28-year-old Ugandan has been a key player for the Natal Rich Boyz since joining from Pretoria Callies in July 2022, particularly impressing in the first half of the last season. He kept 12 clean sheets in 27 league appearances and was named among the best goalkeepers of the 2022/23 campaign.

Magoola’s impressive form has attracted interest from several clubs, including African giants Simba SC, Singida Fountain Gate, and TP Mazembe. However, Richards Bay have issued a “hands off” warning, stating their intention to keep the talented goalkeeper.

Kaizer Chiefs are also rumoured to be interested in Magoola, but Richards Bay are determined to retain his services. The club believes he still has a lot to offer and sees him as a crucial part of their plans.

Of course, the only downside to the potential move to Amakhosi is that the club has no space for a foreign national. The Soweto giants already have Edson Castillo, Edmilson Dove, Thatayaone Ditlhokwe, Jason Gonzalez, and Christian Saile complete their foreign quota.

Salim Magoola previously played for Kampala CC, Express FC, and Sudanese giants Al-Merriek and Al Hilal Omdurman. He recently made headlines last season when he refused to play in the Carling Black Label Knockout Cup against Moroka Swallows FC due to his religious beliefs.

With his contract extension confirmed, Magoola will look to continue his impressive form and help Richards Bay FC achieve further success in the DStv Premiership.

The Natal Rich Boyz are struggling this season, having won just two of their fixtures. They have drawn four times and lost seven, languishing in the relegation zone.

Kaitano Tembo’s charges are currently in 15th place on the log table.
