Itumeleng Khune is, of course, the longest-serving member of the team, having graduated from the club’s youth ranks back in 2004 and has been serving the club for 12 years now.

Siphiwe Tshabalala and George Lebese, who finished as the club’s leading goalscorer last season, follow closely behind the goalkeeper. Tshabalala has been serving the club for 9 years and Lebese 8 years.

Bernard Parker and Willard Katsande follow behind Lebese and Tshabalala with 5 years of serving the club.

Followed by Khuzwayo,Masilela, and Mathoho  with 4 years of serving the club.

With so many changes taking place at the club, it’s nice to pay tribute to the men who have donned the shirt for several seasons.
