Sarupinda leaves CAPS United

By ZBC Reporter

Enterprising Caps United midfielder, Blessing Sarupinda has become the latest player to be lured by the lucrative South African top flight league after agreeing to join Sekhukhune United.

Blessing Sarupinda was one of the outstanding players before the Chibuku Super Cup was suspended due to an upsurge in COVID-19 cases.

Sarupinda played in all the five matches for Caps United and his good form earned him a national team call up for the COSAFA tournament where he did well albeit in disastrous campaign for Zimbabwe.

The newly promoted club is now home to six Zimbabweans in Goalkeeper Tapiwa Kapini, former Warriors captain Willard Katsande, Talent Chawapiwa, Charlton Mashumba, Evans Rusike and Sarupinda.

Makepekepe, who recently lost Ishmael Wadi to South Africa’s national first division side JDR Stars have however offset that departure by signing the 2019 golden boot winner, Clive Augosto who is returning from Maritzburg United of South Africa.

Elsewhere, Herentals has successfully registered Kelvin Bingala from Lumwanda Radiants of Zambia and Young Warriors midfielder, Callum Wilson Brown.

The transfer window was somewhat subdued with clubs evidently not willing to commit at a time football is not being played.

Since the 2019 Premier Soccer League season ended, clubs have played at most five cup games in close to two years with some players leaving without even playing competitive football after their contracts expired.
