THE new football season will kick off with Bidvest Wits signing stars Moeneeb Josephs, Matthew Booth and Benjani Mwaruwari on the squad, according to reports in the media.

Josephs has secured a three year contract with the Clever Boys.

Booth and Mwaruwari have signed a one year contract, with an option to extend the contract for an additional year.

The signing of players to Bidvest Wits is a move away from the club’s tradition of young players, as the trio are in their 30’s.

The Clever Boys are currently training in Cape Town for the next season start in August where they will face Platinum Stars.

The club also starts the season with new coach Gavin Hunt who replaces Clive Barker.                                                                    

Bidvest management declined to comment on details of the new signings.
