Ekwendeni Hammers axe 6 players, recruit 15


By Bernard Mhone:

Mzuzu-based Super League side Ekwendeni Hammers has offloaded six players and signed 15 new members to revamp the squad ahead of the forthcoming season.

Former Silver Strikers winger Ndaziona Chatsalira, Mabuchi Msiska, Samson Banda, Rodrick Gugutu, Patrick Gama and Emmanuel Kanthiti have been released.


“Ekwendeni Hammers Football Club is pleased to announce the release of the following players listed below after the technical panel made recommendations and are free to join any team of their choice. We greatly appreciate the services rendered to the team and wish them well in their endeavours,” reads the statement dated January 27 2023 and signed by the club’s general secretary Benjamin Thole.

In an interview Monday, Thole said they would like to rebuild the side with youthful players.

“We want new blood. We conducted trials at Chibavi Community Ground and we signed 15 players out of the 95 that participated. We want to compete in the Super League strongly and avoid getting involved in relegation battle,” Thole said.


He said they are not targeting to win any silverware but identifying talented players to be sold to other clubs within and outside the country.

Ekwendeni have also promoted five players from the reserve side.

Meanwhile, reports indicate that Chatsalira has gone back to Mozambique to try his luck with some teams.

Ewendeni finished on position 10 last season with 34 points. The side is expected to regroup on February 13.
