The return of coach Boebie Solomons galvanised Santos in the 2009/10 season and they duly claimed a creditable fourth place on the log not a position most pundits would have expected them to reach when the campaign kicked off.
The Peoples Team were even outsiders for the league title at one stage, though their challenge fell away in the latter part of the season.
Nonetheless, they are worthy MTN8 competitors for 2010 after not appearing in the competition last season.
Santos will certainly hope for a better showing in the MTN8 than their last appearance: a 4-0 hammering they received from Kaizer Chiefs in the quarterfinals of the 2008 edition of the competition.
The Cape side won their one and only Top Eight title back in 2002 when they beat Mamelodi Sundowns 2-0 in the final. Santos were regular cup winners in the early 2000s and they would love to restart that trend in the 2010 MTN8.
2009/10 league position: 4th 2009
MTN8: Did not qualify
