In 2011, Bucs signed an attacking midfielder from Niger by the name of Boubacar Talatou with high hopes, but like Tambal he failed to live up to expectations and was released the following year after only one season on the club’s books. 

There have been many others, including Nigerian goalkeeper Emmanuel Daniel, Argentinean forward Osvaldo Nartallo, as well as locals like Reason Chiloane and Nkosinathi Mthiyane.
