Profile Info:
The 31-year-old goalkeeper's move to the Buccaneers was long overdue, in fact, he should have signed with Orlando Pirates two years-ago, but the former Cape Town Spurs and Ajax Cape Town goal-minder opted for neighbors Bidvest Wits. However, the opportunity presented itself again at the end of the 2007/08 season when the Bafana Bafana goalkeeper requested to be placed on the transfer list – Pirates wasted no time and soon pounced on the player.

"When I left Ajax it wasn't the right time for a move to Pirates. Wits gave me the chance to settle in Gauteng; it all worked well for me. The Lord knew how it would work best and it was in his hands,” says Josephs, "Now it's the big stage. I am ready for the challenge."

With 11 seasons under his belt since his professional debut in Cape Town Spurs’ 2-0 win over African Wanderers in September 1997, there is no doubt Josephs has developed into an experienced goalkeeper and will go along way to marshal the Bucs defence in the new season.

Josephs, who was part of the merger between Cape Town Spurs and Seven Stars to form Ajax Cape Town, has a massive record in his career with 222 matches.
