Makonese rejoins Shabanie Mine

ZVISHAVANE - Forgotten former Zimbabwe international defender Zvenyika Makonese has rejoined Shabanie Mine on a one year deal.

Makonese, who has been club hunting since he was released by South African club Black Leopards back in 2012, was recently deemed excess baggage by Highlanders after having also tried his luck without success at Beitbridge side Tripple B last season.

The Chinda Boys have also added two former Highlanders players, Douglas Sibanda and Louis Matawu.

The asbestos miners coach John Phiri confirmed the signing of the trio saying that he hopes that their experience will help the club fight for honours this season.

“Yes we have taken them aboard. Actually they have been training with us for some time and we have been satisfied with their performance at training,” Phiri said.

“They are experienced players whom I believe will add value to our team since we have some young players without much Premiership experience. We are trying to build a team that is capable of fighting for honours.”

Shabanie are on a rebuilding exercise after losing almost the entire team at the start of the year.

The Chinda Boys have so far acquired Godknows Murwira, Zvikomborero Biserck , Merson Nelson , Allan Tavarwisa, Hamilton Masumbuko from relegated Monomotapa.

The duo of Simba Domingo and Ashley Mukwena have arrived from Nothern Region Division One side Chegutu Pirates.

Shabanie have also taken aboard former FC Platinum and Chicken Inn midfielder Hardlife Mavundi, former Motor Action defender Rueben Machaya and Xolani Ncube from Town United.

The Zvishavane-based side will open their 2014 season account with a home fixture against Triangle before travelling to Bulawayo to face highlanders in the second match.
