Chippa United are said to have finally agreed terms with one of coach Gavin Hunt’s latest recruits since he joined the club earlier this month.
As previously reported by the Siya crew, Hunt is believed to have identified Ian Taylor as his assistant at the Gqeberha-based outfit.
It’s now been revealed by sources at Chippa that Taylor has indeed arrived at the club and put pen to paper on a two-year deal to work alongside Hunt, a four-times league title winner who parted ways with Kaizer Chiefs two months ago.
Taylor has previously been employed by Cape Town City and Cape Town Spurs and has also had a spell as the head of development at Chinese Super League club Guangzhou City.
Another addition to the Chippa technical team is goalkeeper coach Tyron Damons, who will reunite with Hunt having worked together with him at now defunct Bidvest Wits prior to the club’s status being sold a year ago.
Damon was in a similar role at TS Galaxy, but left to move to Gqeberha.
The club has not confirmed any new signings since Hunt’s arrival, but it’s understood the coach and management are working behind the scenes to improve the squad before the start of the season next month.
Expect some familiar faces who’ve worked with Hunt in the past.
