Buccaneers announce new signing

Premiership

Orlando Pirates have confirmed the signing of former Highlands Park wing-back Wayde Jooste on a three-year deal.

Jooste had become available after Highlands Park sold their status last month to TS Galaxy and Pirates have subsequently pounced to secure the utility-man, who will add depth to the current squad.

"I am happy to have joined Orlando Pirates," he told the club's website. "This is an opportunity I look to grab with both hands.

"I know everybody says this is a dream come true but before I started playing professionally my father and I supported Orlando Pirates.

"Whenever we played against Pirates it felt special because I felt I was getting closer to my childhood dream. Today I find myself playing for the club that I not only support but a club that even my homeboy Daine Klate also played for."
