Dedza Young Soccer players Chisomo Mpachika and Mishindo left on Monday to undergo trials at South Africa’s top league Umtata Bushbucks.
Dedza Young Soccer coach Milias Jegwa Pofera confirmed that the Mpachika and his teammate had been on Bushbucks radar throughout the season.
Pofera said an official from Bushbucks came in Malawi to assess the players and was impressed by their performance.
He said the two camps made a provisional agreement for the two players to go after the end of the season.
“These players had been monitored by Umtata and the owner of Umtata once came to Malawi to assess and he was happy with their performance,” Pofera said.
“In fact he wanted to get the players during the season but we reached an agreement that they should go after the season because we needed them to help the team.”
He described the trials as window of opportunity for the two youngsters.
“It’s good that they have gone for trials because if they will be successful they stand a chance to better living,” he said.
“Off course a number of local big clubs are interested in some of our players but if they will secure professional deals that will clear the way for a better life as you know football is a short term career.”
In a related development Blue Eagles Christopher John Banda has completed his two-week trials at South Africa’s top league side Jomo Cosmos.
CJ as he is popularly known is optimistic of securing a deal.
“I put up a good effort and I am expected to be offered a contract. I trained with the teams and also played for friendly games for the team,” he said.
CJ could link up with compatriot and former teammate Micium Mhone who joined the team last season.
Mhone was signed alongside Blantyre United’s Muhammed Sulumba who is on loan to Mighty Wanderers.
But Sulumba’s contract was controversially terminated amid his dipping form returned to Lali Lubani Road in the middle of the season.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
