The Recognition Minute
Clever Boys Take the Trophy May 18 2017, 0 Comments
The beautiful game was taken to new heights last night when Bidvest Wits made their debut by winning their first Premiership title in the club’s history. Goals from James Keene and Daine Klate no doubt swelled Gavin Hunt’s pride in his clever boys.
It was a long, tough fight. They stumbled in December by moving sideways with four draws. In good form and spirit, Hunt’s never-say die attitude caught on. Fortuitously assisted by a draw between Maritzburg United and Mamelodi Sundowns, they pulled through and raised the trophy on a convincing win of two goals to nil.
By all accounts, this won’t be the last time that awards and accolades will be seen by this club. A win at this stage is a great confidence booster. Fitness is one thing and the lack of it can be a barrier to the sight of any trophy. But the corporate psychy plays a very important role and that battle is won, for now.
We are proud to have shared in the success of the Absa PSL as designers and manufacturers of the custom-made Man of the Match trophy using 3D technology and our in-house skilled designers and skilled technicians. A truly South African design, made by South Africans for a South African team. We congratulate you and acknowledge Absa as sponsor, without who’s help, these beautiful events would not be possible.
