I am absolutely honoured that out of all the other Women’s Football clubs around the world, she has chosen JVW as the club where she would like to start showcasing her football skills. I welcomed her at her first training with the team on Tuesday, and was impressed to see that she definitely has all the fundamentals. I look forward to her working with Coach Ciara and our First Team where I am sure she will sharpen up and get ready to play in 2020. Although I won’t be here for the rest of the year, as I have just signed with Fortuna Hjorring, I have no doubt that Caster will fit right in, and enjoy her time at the club.” JVW CEO Janine Van Wyk posted.
In recent times, the club has brought in a good number of significant signings including former Banyana Banyana Captain Amanda Dlamini, Nompumelelo Nyandeni, Mamello Makhabane explaining the club’s excellent progress as they are amongst contenders for a playoff in the Sasol championship.
