A hustling batsman and accomplished fielder who started as a founding member of obscure South African club Tupper CC, Mgijima was purchased for just under 200,000 and made an immediate and surprising impact in the Eagles' 2nd XI. Batting in a variety of positions, he averaged 51 in his first three seasons, and took on the captaincy in his second. He gave it up when his form dipped in the seasons afterwards, but arguably saved his place in the squad in averaging 57 in season 35 and surprised many when he was named for his first class debut the following season. He made just 8 but scored a century and a fifty in his next game, before repeating the dose when recalled for the last round on a spicy wicket. He then played every game the following season, performing consistently en route to a 969-run season, including seven more fifties and a hundred against 2005 and All That.

Insiders have claimed Mgijima is possibly the most well-liked player at the club for his quirky sense of humour and hardworking, team-oriented nature, which has contributed to his retention in the squad while arguably more talented cricketers have departed. If the promising beginning to his first-class career is an indicator of what's to come, he could prove a fine rags-to-riches story.
