Antipas settles for continuity

HARARE - Chicken Inn coach Joey Antipas is not intimidated by the vast spending by opposing clubs during this 2015 Castle Premiership season transfer window.

With the new season scheduled to start on March 7, the Gamecocks have maintained a low profile on the transfer market where they have only made three new signings.

They have brought in strikers David Temwanjira from Chiredzi FC, Michelle Katsvairo from FC Platinum and Edmore Chirambadare from Tsholotsho Football Club.

A free scoring striker, Chirambadare arrives at the Bulawayo-based outfit with a huge reputation having won the 2014 Zifa Southern Region Golden Boot with 23 goals that helped Tsholotsho win promotion.

His goal tally was 11 more than the PSL’s joint Golden Boot winners, Charles Sibanda and Kuda Musharu, who finished with 12 goals.

Antipas will also be delighted that former FC Platinum striker Katsvairo has been firing early warning shots having been on target in friendly matches against Plumtree Chiefs and How Mine.

The unassuming coach, who recently rejoined the club after completing a Caf B course in Harare, is, however, not counting on individuals to sustain their 2015 league campaign.

“We decided to go for continuity.  I believe that’s the way for our team. We have more or less the same team from last year,” he said.

Chicken Inn finished last season in position six, 13 points shy of league champions Dynamos.

Antipas, however, could not be drawn to make any conclusions on their aspirations this season.

“We are just going to take it game by game but the one thing I can guarantee is that we are going to be competitive,” he said.
