Orlando Pirates have gained two trialists as part of the Nedbank Ke Yona draft.
Goalkeeper Mduduzi Khumalo, 22, and defensive midfielder Elton Nhamichua joined Bucs' training session on Friday as they start a month's assessment under head coach Milutin Sredojevic.
Bucs, who on Thursday promoted Amajita striker Lyle Foster to the first team, confirmed the pair's arrival at Mayfair on the club's official website.
The duo made the 18-man Nedbank Ke Yona squad - selected from thousands of hopefuls - that lost 2-1 to Nedbank Cup champions SuperSport United in a friendly at Makhulong Stadium in Tembisa last weekend.
As part of the initiative, all 18 players are handed an opportunity to earn a professional contract during an evaluation at a Premiership club.
