Bidvest Wits have enjoyed three good seasons under coach Gavin Hunt, ending inside the top four on each occasion, but the pressure is mounting as big-spending owner Brian Joffe is desiring silverware.
Coach Gavin Hunt is well remembered for guiding SuperSport United to three consecutive league titles between 2008 and 2010, and this season’s Absa Premiership presents yet another chance for The Clever Boys to win silverware.
The club has signed several new faces in an attempt to launch an attack on the League trophy. The likes of Gabadinho Mhango, Xolani Mlambo, Darren Keet, Mogakolodi Ngele and Cutbert Malajila have come in to strengthen the squad.
Previously known as Wits University, the club is the oldest currently competing in the PSL having been formed in 1921.
Nicknamed The Clever Boys, they have yet to win a league title, their last trophy success coming in 2010 when they lifted the Nedbank Cup.
Following a second-place finished in the league last season, the Braamfontein-based club will be eager to go one better this time around.
