Wits Sign 25-Year-Old With One Bafana Cap

Bidvest Wits have continued their off-season recruitment by bringing in South Africa international, Carl Lark to bolster their options in attack.

The 25-year-old has been plying his trade for Cape Town amateur team, Rygersdal Football Club having left Stellenbosch FC at the end of the 2017/18 season. Rygersdal head coach Gershawn Coetzee brought the player to the club.

Lark has played in the PSL before, playing nine games at Ajax Cape Town, on a short-term loan from Santos in the 2013/14 season as a 20-year-old.  

Lark has one international cap, having been called up to the Bafana Bafana squad by then coach Shakes Mashaba in 2015 and making his debut against Botswana in the COSAFA Cup.

The attacker, who can play wide, as a number ten or as a striker, spent some time on trial with Cape Town City shortly after the club was formed, but did not earn a contract.  

Rygersdal FC chairman, Justin Asher, confirmed the deal to Soccer Laduma.

“Our first team Head Coach, Gershawn Coetzee, made contact with Carl earlier this year and offered him the opportunity to play for the club as a means of getting fit and rejuvenating his career.

"We've always maintained our aim is to promote players to the big stage so when we heard of the interest from Wits after Gavin Hunt saw him in a CTTFA Premier League fixture, there was excitement all-round.

"The professionalism in how everything was conducted has been fantastic and we're grateful to Gavin Hunt, the representatives and the Wits management for affording Carl this chance to prove his worth.”

Lark becomes Bidvest Wits’ fourth off-season signing after the pre-contract deals for Brandon Petersen and Prince Nxumalo (both Ajax Cape Town) and Phathutshedzo Nange (Black Leopards). The club is also expected to announce deals for Ivan Mahangwahaya, Joseph Douhadji and Zitha Macheke, whilst Mxolisi Macuphu has returned from a loan spell at SuperSport United.
