Bloemfontein Celtic management intends to approach Free State Premier Beatrice Marshoff to assist the team to qualify for the Telkom Charity Cup in Mmabatho on August 4.

Phunya Selesele, who were in fourth position on Wednesday, were pushed down to the fifth spot when Silver Stars took pole position last week.

Celtic's PRO Sello Nduna said they hope to collect as many votes as they possibly could this time round.

"We're going to talk to Premier Marshoff to help us qualify, because that will not only benefit Celtic, but even charity organisations in the province," said Nduna.

He said they will be canvassing for support in the streets of Bloemfontein as well as neighbouring townships, appealing to every Free Stater to make two telephone calls or send two SMSs for the club.

"We believe if they can all do as we wish, we stand a good chance of ending among the top four when the voting lines close."

Nduna said they will also appeal to different schools in the province to vote for them.

As part of their marketing drive they will also ask priests in their sermons to urge their congregants to vote for Celtic.

Tomorrow some of Celtic's branch chairmen will be at Hoffman Square, Mokrik Shopping Centre and Sechaba Shopping Centre.

Yesterday by 5pm Celtic had collected 5 470 votes while Silver Stars are still leading with 30 473 votes, Mamelodi Sundowns are second with 23 690 votes, third is Kaizer Chiefs with 19 444 votes then fourth placed is Orlando Pirates with 14 077 votes.
