Be Forward Wanderers have sealed deals with three new players, marking the end of their activities on the transfer market.
Wanderers have been busy on the market to replace several stars who are no longer at the club.
Some of the players that left Lali Lubani Road are Yamikani Chester, Joseph Kamwendo, Peter Wadabwa, Precious Sambani and Essau Kanyenda.
The Nomads have roped in the Mighty Tigers duo of striker Peter Kasonga and defender Hankey Machira, who have been offered three-year contracts each after passing trials.
Wanderers have also secured the services of Hangover United winger Richard Rabson on a three-year deal.
The Lali Lubani Road side’s team manager, Steve Madeira, said they were beefing up the squad with promising players following the departure of the influential players.
“We parted ways with some of our best players but life has to go on because Wanderers is where stars are made. We have lost some quality players but we will replace them.
“We have handed three-year contracts to each of the new players and feel this is good for both parties. We will then decide what to do next after the expiry of the contracts. The players will have enough time to prove that they deserve to be with us beyond the three years,” Madeira said.
He said the players had the potential to emulate the senior players who left the side at the end of the 2018 season.
“We will give the new players a good platform to develop their skills. At the same time, we want to encourage them to give out their best to prove that they are good to don our famous colours. As a club, we feel we have made good recruitments,” he said.
Hangover owner, Fayad Jussab, confirmed that Richard had been sold to Wanderers at an undisclosed fee.
“Yes we have sold him to Wanderers. We agreed not to disclose the amount involved but be assured that we transacted amicably,” Jussab said.
He said Richard was the only player that had been sold so far and the club is in talks with a potential replacement before the 2019 Southern Region Football Association League season kicks off.
