Bidvest Wits’ U19 team have so far bagged three wins, while on tour in Portugal, playing against the likes of Porto CF and CD Feirense.
The Students confirmed that after the Bayhill tournament was cancelled for the U19s setup last year, the club’s team manager, Roy Limongelli worked with a local club representative in Portugal to arrange five matches for the Wits side.
“The Bayhill tournament was cancelled last year and this year it was announced late so we put this tour together for our U19 team,” the club’s media officer, Julian Bailey explained.
“Roy Limongelli worked with Nuno (Portuguese local club representative) to arrange 5 matches here.
“In the first match we won 4-0 against CD Feirense and the second match was a 2-1 win against FC Porto.
“Monday we play our third match against Academica, Tuesday vs Guimaraes and Thursday vs Sanjoanense,” Bailey told the Siya crew.
The Students defeated the young Guimaraes side 3-1 on Tuesday.
