Chicken Inn football club has got down to serious business with some new faces trying out their luck at the 2015 champions.
The side that was going through their paces under the watch of returning coaches Joey ‘Mafero’ Antipas and Prince Matore at Hartsfields rugby grounds had a number of new faces among them former Highlanders midfielder Simon Munawa, Toto Banda from How Mine, impressive Shabani Mine midfielder Joe Nyabinde and returning striker Adrian Banana who had been loaned out to Bulawayo Chiefs.
Indications are the Gamecocks have already sealed deals for left back Xolisani Ncube from Zim Leopards, Kudzai Chideu and Obrey Chirinda from How Mine and Bantu Rovers respectively.
Head coach Antipas revealed that he was still trying to work on the current and prospective players’ fitness and is hopeful of a positive outcome from the pre season session.
The club’s secretary general Tavengwa Hara noted they had lined up some friendly matches in preparation for the season that is set to commence on the 10th of March.
The Gamecocks will first take on Zambian giants Zanaco next Friday while Nkana has also approached them with the view of another match on the following Sunday.
