Today’s featured transfer is one of the most-beloved skippers the club ever had.

Jimmy Tau was also made special by the fact that he joined Amakhosi in a dramatic departure from bitter rivals Orlando Pirates where he was also the captain.


The Kimberly-born 24-year-old arrived in 2005 before serving the club for eight years until his retirement in 2013.

The right-back won two Nedbank Cup titles as well as the Telkom Knockout, while also making the club proud with eight Bafana Bafana caps.
