Sheppy impresses with Wits U17s


Wits gave a good account of themselves at the tournament held in Johannesburg recently and only lost 2-1 to Spanish team Atletico Madrid in the final, with Sheppard calling the shots on the bench as coach for the Students juniors.

Wits head of development Glen Salmon is full of praise for Sheppard’s performance during the tournament.

“Dillon has played football at the highest level, he has a football brain. He’s still playing but I assume he is retiring at the end of the season,” Salmon tells

“We are impressed with the team’s performance. It was a tough tournament starting from the qualifiers. The boys always showed great character, coming from behind in most of the games,” he adds.
