TNM Super League survivors, Epac FC, will invade the market in search for five new players to strengthen the squad.
Epac survived the chop in a dramatic fashion when they beat Dedza Young Soccer 2-1 at Civo Stadium on Saturday.
Dedza needed a point to remain in the league, but Epac came from behind to snatch the victory.
Epac coach Abasi Makawa, yesterday confirmed that he is targeting five new signings next season.
“We don’t want of a repeat of this season. We survived in the league by the grace of God. At all cost, we need to buy five good players,” Makawa said.
Makawa desperately needs a left winger, striker, central midfielder and a defender.
He also ruled out the possibility of selling players this season. For the past three seasons, Epac players have been in demand.
“I don’t want to let any of my stars go. I know big teams usually persuade Epac players, but it would be good if the players remain with us to build a strong team to challenge for trophies next season,” he said.
Giants Big Bullets and Be Forward Wanderers have been poaching players from the Dean Josiah-Banda sponsored side.
In recent years, Bullets have poached more players from Epac than any other team. The Peoples Team bought Mussa Manyenje, Pilirani Zonda and Jaffalie Chande.
Ranken Mwale, Joseph Kachule, Innocent Tanganyika, Mude Jeffrey and Justin Kamanga are some of Epac players, who performed well this season.
Since being promoted into the TNM Super League in 2011, Epac have never been relegated. This season they finished on position 11 with 30 points from 28 games.
