Silver Strikers have signed attacking midfielder Uchizi Vunga from relegated TNM Super League side Mzuzu Warriors on a two-year deal.
The move comes just three days after Silver announced the signing of Emmanuel Muyira, who joined on a similar deal from another side that was axed from the elite league, Chitipa United.
According to the Central Bankers’ website, Vunga started training with the FDH Bank Cup champions on Wednesday at their Area 47 base in Lilongwe.
Silver Chief Executive Officer Thokozani Chimbali described Vunga as a young, exciting player who will be a great addition to their relatively youthful side.
“Uchizi is a valuable addition to our team. He has a lot of energy. He is a player for the present and the future,” Chimbali said.
Vunga will have to bring out his best to win a place in the starting lineup of the team, which has seasoned players in his position such as Patrick Macheso, Frank Banda, Blessings Tembo, Thuso Paipi, Zebron Kalima and Chinsinsi Maonga.
Chimbali said they expected to bring at least two more new players before the 2022 season kicks off.
Silver are on a campaign to beef up their squad in readiness for the 2022 season after failing to win the TNM Super League title in the just-end season.
Towards the end of the 2021 season, Silver signed forward Chawanangwa Kaonga, who returned home after expiry of his contract with South African side TS Sporting.
Silver started the 2021 season with the target of winning the league title and looked on course to achieve their objective until Bullets overtook them.
The Central Bankers finished second but are taking solace in the fact that they won the inaugural FDH Bank Cup.
Silver are in line for a double this season as they are also in the semifinals of the Airtel Top 8 Cup, where they will meet rivals Civil Service United.
