Cape Town - Gavin Hunt is set to hit a milestone as he takes charge of his 500th game as a PSL coach when Bidvest Wits face Platinum Stars.

According to KickOff, Hunt first began his career in 1998 as a young 34-year-old - mentoring Seven Stars. That same season he led Stars to promotion from the NFD to the PSL. Hunt then became the youngest PSL coach at the time.

Hunt has coached at five previous clubs before landing the Wits gig - having led Stars, Hellenic, Black Leopards, Moroka Swallows and SuperSport United in his career.

In Hunts combined statistics, the now 50-year-old has won 212 games, drawn 154, lost 133 in his past 499 league games.

Former player of his and SuperSport’s captain, Thabo September, hopes that the stern coach remains in the coaching realm for many years to come.

“I think it is a great milestone for him and he deserves it,” September says.

“He is a great coach and I wish him 500 more. Surely, he will reach that.

“If you look at his 500 [League], there have been a lot of trophies in that time and it was definitely great having him in our team. It was a great experience working with him,” September adds.

Meanwhile, last season the Clever Boys took four points off Dikwena, drawing 0-0 in Rustenburg before claiming a 1-0 win in Johannesburg.

Kick-off is at 15:30 on Sunday, December 14.
