Silver Strikers was my dream— Jack Chiona


Silvers Strikers’ third signing, Jack Chiona, has said it was his dream to play for the Airtel Top 8 Cup champions.
“It was my wish to play for a big team like Silver one day, and I am happy that my dream has come true,” Chiona said on Sunday after completing his switch from Dwangwa United.
“I promise that I will continue what I was doing at Dwangwa so that I should not disappoint my new employers.”
Silver signed the dead-ball specialist on a three-year contract worth K5 million.
Chiona was influential for Dwangwa in the just-ended season after scoring 12 goals in all competitions.
Silvers interim General Secretary, Thabo Nyirenda, said they were pleased to sign one of their big targets.
“Jack is one of the talented players in the country and we are excited that we have signed him. He was one of the top-goal scorers last season. It is rare for an attacking midfielder like him to score [all] those goals.
“We are equating him to the likes of Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard; so, it is great news to have a player like him in our camp,” Nyirenda said.
Dwangwa General Secretary, Samson Zimba, said he was hopeful that Chiona would excel at Silver.
“We are excited that we have produced a player who will showcase his talent at a bigger club. At the same time, it is would be tough for us to look for a replacement,” Zimba said.
Silver have also signed Lazarus Nyemera and Mphatso Philmon from Mzuni FC and Blue Eagles, respectively.
