Madinda Finalise Bosso 2018 Squad

Highlanders coach Madinda Ndlovu has finalised his squad for the 2018 Castle Lager Premier Soccer League season that gets underway next week.

“We’re done with recruiting; there are no more vacancies at Highlanders. Sianchali was the last person to join us. As we indicated, we were in the hunt for a top man, not men. A seasoned striker is what we were looking for. I believe we have got one in Sianchali. What it means is that we don’t have a vacancy anymore.

“Maybe we will have openings in the next window if things do not work out. At this time there is no point in wasting people’s time by inviting players for trials when the league starts next week. We have to concentrate on maintaining what we have been working on for the past eight weeks,” said Ndlovu.

The Bosso legend was tasked with the responsibility of returning the club to its old ways of promoting players from the junior ranks instead of going to the market. This was in line with resolutions of last year’s Highlanders’ mid-season general meeting where members agreed to focus on homegrown talent.

Some of the players in the Highlanders squad include former Tsholotsho FC and Ngezi Platinum Stars right-back McClive Phiri, who seems to have easily settled at Bosso and could be the find of the season. Former Under-20 defensive midfielder Ben Munsaka, ex-Bantu Rovers central midfielder Munyaradzi Chitambwe, unheralded Aces Youth Academy product Nigel Mukombe, who is an attacking midfielder, and the experienced Sianchali.
