Highlanders to unveil full squad on Saturday

HIGHLANDERS will unveil their 2015 squad and technical team to the team’s fans on Saturday, 24 hours before the match-their first serious match after playing friendlies against Division One sides and Victoria Falls select teams over the weekend.
“We want people who love football and sympathise with the club to come to the clubhouse and meet the new technical set-up and players,” said chief executive officer Ndumiso Gumede.
“We have a new coach and we want our supporters to have a one-on-one with him because some are not familiar with him, but know his assistants Mandla (Mpofu) and Oxo (Peter Nkomo).
“We want supporters to get to know the players off the field of play; that is why we are giving the supporters this opportunity.”
The club will on Sunday take on Caps United at Barbourfields Stadium in the semi-finals of the Bob91 Super Cup.
This will be new Caps coach Mark Harrison’s second tough match inside a week after Sunday’s 6-5 penalty win over Dynamos in the Sino-Zim Cement Cup and will be eager to test the waters against the Bulawayo giants.
New Highlanders coach Bongani Mafu will also be looking to make a good first and endear himself to the team’s demanding fans.Advertisement
