Ngezi to parade new signings

HARARE - Premiership side Ngezi Platinum Stars are set to unveil their new acquisitions when the team parade their new-look squad, which will do business ahead of the pending 2018 Castle Lager Premiership season.

The Mhondoro-Ngezi platinum miners will parade seven new signings who include Tichaona Chipunza, who joined from Dynamos, goalkeepers Tatenda Munditi and Bernard Donovan who are joining from Harare City and How Mine respectively.

Ngezi also signed Ghanaian striker Steven Owusu Kaakyire aimed at bolstering their strike force which appeared their biggest letdown at the crucial stage of last season.  

Marlon Mushonga also signed for Ngezi after leaving relegated Tsholotsho while Frank Mukarati joined from now defunct How Mine with Kelvin Sande promoted from the team’s juniors.

And to accommodate their new signings, Ngezi Platinum had to part ways with some players who were deemed excess baggage in the form of midfielder Dominic Mukandi who has since rejoined CAPS United.

They also released defender Edgar Tapera as well as goalkeeper Takabva Mawaya, who has rejoined ZPC Kariba.

Midfielder Edgar Mhunhu has also rejoined Herentals after joining at the start of last season.

The Mhondoro-based club also lost defender Partson Jaure who signed for Zambian side Buildcon.

After finishing third last season behind FC Platinum and Dynamos, Ngezi are hoping to launch a title assault this season and have retained the services of senior players such as Walter Mukanga, Tichaona Mabvura, Godknows Murwira and Qadr Amini among others.

They were also able to convince utility player Liberty Chakoroma, who at one stage looked as if he was headed for FC Platinum in the offseason only to have a change of heart at the very last minute after being initially registered for the Caf Champions League.

For the better part of last season, Ngezi Platinum looked to be genuine contenders for the league title only to choke at the crucial stages of the race.
