PREMIER Soccer League champions Ngezi Platinum Stars have beefed up their attack after signing strikers Obriel Chirinda and Moses Demera.

The champions have boosted their attack after signing Obriel Chirinda who scored 12 goals for Bulawayo Chiefs last season as well as Moses Demera who also found the back of the net 12 times for ZPC Kariba.

Mhondoro is now home to the top three strikers from last season as the new duo will be battling with top goal scorer Takunda Benhura.

Ngezi Platinum Stars have so far signed five new players after they unveiled battle-hardened midfielder Never Tigere, combative Richard Hachiro and attacker Talent Chamboko two weeks ago.

The pair joined their new teammates in intensive preparations with the 2024 season set to kick off on the 17th of this month when they clash with Dynamos in the Castle Challenge Cup.

Head coach Takesure Chiragwi believes the new acquisitions will add depth and experience with the club set to compete on two fronts.

“We are going to be competing domestically and in Africa so these guys not only being experienced but they also add class to the team and we believe with these new guys complimenting what we already had, we can do well this season but the key is hard work.”

The Mhondoro-based side will be competing in the CAF Champions League this season and a battle-hardened midfielder who knows the African terrain having turned out for FC Platinum and Azam in Tanzania has called on the team to respect no one.

“Football is the same everywhere, we need to work as a team and understand that the champions’ league is a higher stage so we need to be concentrating every minute,” said Ngezi Platinum Stars midfielder, Never Tigere.

Ngezi Platinum Stars have retained the bulk of their players save for Wayne Makuwe and Ariel Makopa.

Meanwhile, the club has fulfilled one of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) Club licensing requirements after forming a women’s team that is set to compete in the Northern Region Women’s Division One this season.
