Witbank Spurs have completed the appointment of a new coach on a two-year deal.
The club confirmed that Sammy Troughton, who has vast experience of coaching in both in the PSL and the NFD replaces Zimbabwe national team coach Rahman Gumbo who was sacked by the struggling Emalahleni based side recently.
Siyavutha are currently 14th on the NFD log table with four points in seven games.
It will be not the first time Troughton works in the Mpumalanga town, as he once took the now defunct Mpumalanga Black Aces to the Absa Premiership.
Spurs CEO, Freddy Mapulane confirmed the news to the Siya crew.
"Sammy Troughton is our new coach. He has signed for two years," he said.
"He knows this league, last season he was with Uthongathi, he promoted Aces before, he is a good coach that has coached the likes of Free State Stars and he was not doing (badly). We think we have identified the problem that we are good but tactically we are not so okay. That's why we brought Sammy as an experienced coach to come and guide because we've got a good team."
Mapulane also explained the reason they went for Troughton instead of the other shortlisted candidate, Ian Palmer.
"No we couldn't agree (on) terms, So we opted for Sammy because look if you check Ian Palmer he stays far from Witbank and Sammy is here in Pretoria. So it's more conducive for him to come here in Witbank in and out. We are at the gym as we are speaking I'm with him. His mandate is to win the league or to take us to the play-offs."
