Chikwaikwai, Ndoro get clearances


Former Zimbabwe international striker Evans Chikwaikwai and former be-Mobile Premiership Club Nico United striker Tendai Ndoro, are likely to make their debut appearance for Chicken Inn in a Castle Lager Premier Soccer league match at Luveve Stadium on Saturday.

They have secured their reverse international clearances.

Chicken Inn have a tricky assignment against the Glamour Boys at their favourite hunting ground.

Chikwaikwai was awaiting clearance from South Africa Football Association after a short stint with Bidvest Wits of South Africa before he was loaned to Mozambican side Liga Muçulmana.
Ndoro had to be cleared by the Botswana Football Association.

Club chairman Lifa Ncube confirmed this development to NewsDay Sport on Wednesday.

“The players are now available as they obtained their clearances on Tuesday,” he said.

The inclusion of Ndoro and Chikwaikwai would add depth to the team and they will compete for jerseys against top striker Thomas Chimenya, Never Musvipa and former TP Mazembe striker Daniel Zokoto.

Ndoro was the Top Goalscorer runner-up in the 2010/2011 be-Mobile Premier Soccer League season while Chikwaikwai scooped the 2008 Golden Boot and Soccer Star of the Year awards with Njube Sundowns.

The “Drumstick Special Boys” will be hoping to get back on track and collect maximum points after losing 1-0 against Dynamos in Harare last week.

Meanwhile, Luke Masomere who has reportedly joined Zimbabwe Saints, is likely to assume his new role as head coach on Monday as he is still to consult his wife who is out of the country.

Masomere was initially supposed to assume his new role at the Bulawayo club on Wednesday, but said he was still to sign the contract.

“I am still to consult my wife on joining Zimbabwe Saints. She is away in South Africa, but she should be back by Sunday. After the discussion I will make up my mind and if I am joining them it will be on Monday,” he said.

Zimbabwe Saints fired assistant coach Agent Sawu last week, while the future of the head coach Willard “Mashinkila” Khumalo is uncertain.

Despite all these developments, Masomere said he has not resigned from Masvingo United and would be sitting on the bench when they take on FC Platinum at Mandava Stadium on Saturday.

“I am still in charge of Masvingo. I am hoping that we will win the match against FC Platinum. Playing against such teams is always good because it makes us strategise well as we want to win against such good sides,” he said.
