Cape Town - New Bloemfontein Celtic defender Cheslyn Jampies says he is eager to prove his worth to coach Serame Letsoaka.

Jampies joined Siwelele from the relegated Jomo Cosmos ahead of the 2016/17 Absa Premiership season.

Celtic will be looking to secure a better finish after a difficult previous season where they ended in 11th place.

"The set-up reminds me of that at Ikamva (Ajax Cape Town); professional and well orchestrated development structures that show the seriousness of the team about its future," Jampies told the club's official website.

"We have such a knowledgeable, passionate and futuristic mentor who always emphasises on the significance of committing oneself for the benefit of the team. Together with his technical team, they have vast experience that will make us prosper.

"As you can see, I have already started with extra personal training. The playing system here at Celtic will require a lot of energy and commitment.

"As much as I’m a defender, I also want to help the team by scoring goals; hence I am practicing free-kicks."
