Comitis’ club was launched in the Mother City today (Wednesday), in an event attended by the media and the city’s government officials, among other people, at the Cape Town Stadium.

While Comitis confirmed that 14 players have been retained from the Aces’ side that finished fourth in the PSL under Muhsin Ertugral, there were only 11 players at the launch of the new club.

The 11 are Mpho Matsi, Aubrey Ngoma, Lebogang Manyama, Shu-Aib Walters, Bhongolethhu Jayiya, Vincent Kobola, Given Mashikinya, Sibusiso Masina, Nana Akosah-Bempah, Ricardo Ndiki and Thabo Nodada.

Introducing the players, Comitis said, “We spent some time together in Johannesburg. It took some time for us to find each other’s feet. Most of them I didn’t know personally. I saw them only through the screens, and I’m delighted at their professionalism. I’ve got big hopes with these guys and we will bolster the squad. We’ve got 14 and we will end up with 24 to 25 players. So we’ve got a series of trials that are all happening at the same time. International foreigners coming from as far as Spain and Australia are on their way.”
