Cape Town - Cape Town City have further bolstered their squad ahead of the 2016/17 Absa Premiership season, with the signings of midfielder James Brown and goalkeeper Samora Motloung.

The Mother City based outfit have been hard at work in preparation for their first season in the PSL and  took their official Twitter account to announce their latest acquisitions.

"#CTCFC would like to officially welcome Australian international, James Brown (26). #NewSigningAlert #iamCityFC," read the Tweet.

"We would like to officially welcome Goalkeeper, Samora Motloung to #CTCFC #NewSigningAlert #LocalTalent #iamCityFC."

Brown is an Australian attacking midfielder, who made his debut in 2007 with the Australian Institute of Sport Football Program, after coming through the ranks of the Queensland Academy Of Sports.

The 26-year-old arrives with a wealth of experience, having featured for the junior Australian national teams from Under-17 to Under-23 levels, and his presence expected to offer coach Eric Tinkler extra options in attack for the new season.

Motloung is a former Orlando Pirates and FC Cape Town goalkeeper, who is expected to rival Shu-Aib Walter for the number one jersey.

The Tinkler-led side have filled their foreign quota for the season as they already have Renars Rode, Matt Sim, Nana Akosah-Bempah, Roland Putsche and Brown on their books.
