FC Platinum sign Musona, target Chafa

PREMIERSHIP giants FC Platinum have signed Young Warriors stars Walter Musona and Wisdom Mutasa for the 2014 season.
Misdom is the son of the club’s head coach Lloyd Mutasa.
Platinum are also keeping a close eye on out of contract Dynamos midfielder Devon Chafa, who will only be back in action on March after serving a six-month suspension from Fifa for using failing a doping test.
Club president George Mawere confirmed the new signings.
“In readiness of the new premier league soccer season, our team is due to begin intense preparations shortly. Our quest continues to be one of remaining a formidable and competitive outfit, in Zimbabwe,” Mawere said in a statement.
“For the current season, we have sought to boost our team by a number of new signings. These include Young Warriors attacker Walter Musona from Aces Academy, promising linkman Wisdom Mutasa, Steven Sibanda from Buffaloes, and bustling striker Tarisai Rukanda.
“In line with our long term strategy of grooming local talent and giving exposure to players in our development sides, (Under 19 and Guinea Fowls Academy), we have promoted Tatenda Dzumbunu, Livingstone Genti and Godfrey Chisango, from Junior teams and DC academy’s talented James Marufu.
“To enhance the professionalism of our team we are also making strides to become a fully compliant club in all regulatory statues. The focus on generating income also remains a top priority to ensure the long term sustainability of our soccer club.
“It is our belief that the 2014 soccer season will see us maintain our top four position, building loyal supporters and contributing to the development of soccer excellence in our country.”
The Zvishavane-based club has lost Welcome Ndiweni to Highlanders while Charles Sibanda and Joel Ngodzo are also reportedly on their way to the Bulawayo giants.
But Platinum has managed to tie down the crucial trio of Daniel Vheremu, Donald Ngoma and Nelson Maziwisa. Mitchelle Katsvairo, Winston Mhango, Ali Sadiki, Zambian international Obrey Chirwa, twins Elvis and Kelvin Moyo all have running contracts.
Platinum are owned by Mimosa Mining Company, but run their own commercial adventures which include two night clubs, a service station, state of the art gym, sports shop and are concluding plans to construct an ultra-city along the Zvishavane-Bulawayo highway, plans put in place by firebrand former club president Nathan Shoko.Advertisement
