Wits’ New R2.6m Man Tipped For Success

Bidvest Wits' Simon Murray Has Been Tipped For Success In South Africa

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 23, 2018 07:35 PM
Simon Murray will be a success in South Africa’s Premier Soccer League with Bidvest Wits, with Ryan Hartslief saying that he will be a ‘credit to the club’.
 
 
The 26-year-old forward, who scored 17 goals last season for Hibernian and Dundee in Scotland, is now officially a Clever Boy having been unveiled by the club earlier today, and will occupy the foreign spot that was vacated by James Keene when he left for SuperSport United.
 
Hartslief, of Bigtime Sports Management, is confident that Wits have made a good call in snapping up the Scot as they look to get back to winning ways after narrowly escaping relegation last time out.
 
He said, “Simon will be a credit to the club and to the league. He has proven to be a regular goalscorer of 15 to 20 goals each season and is following in the footsteps of his father who also played professionally for Hibs.
 
“I believe his African adventure shall be a successful project for all parties. I also feel his arrival shall lead to further Scottish players and coaches arriving in the PSL in the not too distant future.”
 
Murray’s representative also confirmed that the £150,000 (R2.6m) transfer fee being reported in the Scottish media was correct, and that the forward has penned a four-year deal with the Clever Boys.
 
The forward has 94 direct goal contributions (60 goals, 34 assists) from 151 career games.

It was easy to beat Chiefs with our C team,,we sign quality players and we deliver unlike chiefs they steal our players,, ull ask urself how katsande break into professional football,,But its Ok,'I'm not suprised on why he played for a small team who rely on referees to win Cups,,we Sundowns we play for a win attacking football playing chiefs is like playing Baroka the only team we fear is Orlando Piratse,,concluded jungle Oats Pizza
