New signings excite Masomere

HARARE - How Mine coach Luke Masomere is delighted on how his team is shaping up ahead of the 2015 Castle Premiership season having acquired some “quality” signings in this current window period.

Chikurupati have been busy in this current window and have tied some decent deals in the key departments as they aim to break Dynamos’ dominance on the Zimbabwean league title. 

Record champions DeMbare have won the title for the past four years under Calisto Pasuwa, who stepped down at the end of last season and How Mine have been quietly going about their business assembling what appears a strong squad to end that era.

“We are very pleased with what we have got so far. We will add one or two more if there is still need to make us bigger, stronger, better – basically to make us better equipped for the challenge ahead,” Masomere told the Daily News yesterday.

How Mine have reinforced their squad with former Dynamos midfielders Devon Chafa and Tawanda Muparati after the two were released by the reigning champions following the expiry of their contracts.

Chikurupati, who finished ninth on the standings last season, have also roped in former CAPS United skipper Tapiwa Kumbuyani, 2014 Soccer Star of the Year runner-up Limited Chikafa from ZPC Kariba and Benjamin Marere from FC Platinum.

The gold miners have also signed former Highlanders goalkeeper Munyaradzi Diya and attacking midfielder Charles Sibanda while capturing the services of Moses Gutu from Buffaloes with Nefitara Ndale arriving from Masvingo United.

“So far, we have bought what we feel are quality players and we could still add more to the existing squad. We are working hard to ensure we have a strong team. Our aim is to improve from last season,” he said. 

“We don’t want to put ourselves under pressure. What I can say for now is we want to play good football this year and so far so good; the signs are good.”

How Mine have also shown interest in the Dynamos trio of strikers Simba Sithole and Roderick Mutuma alongside winger Tafadzwa Rusike who are all out of contract at the champions.
