    Shabani FC beefs up squad after player exodus


    ZVISHAVANE - Shabani Mine FC has unveiled five new players including 40 year old veteran defender Zvenyika Makonese who bounces back to the club after a failed bid to move to Swaziland due to old age.
    The five new signings come following the departure of key stars Collin Duhwa to local and foreign clubs (Chicken Inn), Nelson Maziwisa (Kabwe Warriors, Zambia), Ereah Phiri who went back to Division one to join Ivan Hoe, Rashid Kanyenze, Reeves Mukuura and in-form goalkeeper Samuel Mafukidze who have joined Prophet Walter Magaya's Yadah Stars.
    The new signings are Zvenyika Makonese, Richard Kawondera from Triangle, Trevor Ajana from Ghana, Agrippa Murimba on loan from neighbours FC Platinum and goalkeeper Petros Moyo.
    Club technical manager Taku Shariwa said they are not really worried about those that left as their replacements are equal to the task.
    "As a club we are happy for producing good players that are marketable elsewhere and we always recruit new talent that will as well excel and put the club to higher levels. We just lost to Highlanders but that does not mean we are down but we are creating new combinations, hopefully in the coming encounters Shabani FC will be back to its winning ways," said Shariwa.
    Meanwhile, veteran defender Makonese is likely to partner William Mapfumo at the heart of Shabani FC defence on Saturday when Shabanie mine play Bulawayo City at Barbourfields stadium in Bulawayo. Following the injury on defender Nyasha Mpofu who lasted the Highlanders game limping therefore, this week the coaches may rest him and rope in returnee Makonese.
    In the reverse fixture Bulawayo City beat Chinda Boys 2-0 at Maglas stadium and this time they are expecting a win away from home.sport news
