Veteran defender William Mugeyi is delighted his beloved Bush Bucks have been registered to play in the first division and is looking forward to getting them back into the Castle Premiership.
Mugeyi, who saw his twin brother Wilfred leave the financially troubled club club for Ajax Cape Town following their relegation from the top flight at the end of last season, told SASoccer365 it never entered his mind to leave Imbabala.
When Bush Bucks got relegated I had many offers to play in the top league but Bucks have been too good to me," said the 34-year-old on Monday.
"Bucks have looked after me for nearly ten years and to think of joining another club is like a death wish to me."
Mugeyi, who is also the teams assistant coach, said his focus was now on rolling up his sleeves and getting the club back to their rightful place amongst the elite of South African soccer.
"The club is now playing in the Coastal division and I have signed a one year contract with them.
"Everyone is happy now because we are all being paid again and we will be back in the PSL next season."
"People can say what they want about playing for Bush Bucks but to me it is my second home and l am guaranteed a place to play."
Mugeyi has played 295 games for Bush Bucks, more than anyone else in the clubs history.
