CONTINENTAL envoys, sensational Zanaco, have continued to refine their squad ahead of the soccer season which starts next weekend.
The Bankers completed the transfer of a young centre back, Golden Mafweta, from Chilenje Happy Hearts.
The 18-year-old defender finalised his permanent move to Sunset from Happy Hearts upon completion of medical examinations.
The club media office told the Sun Sport that, Mafwenta had an impressive pre-season performance after proving himself as one of the promising players during the Chipata and Copperbelt camps.
His performance in a friendly match against Buildcon after being named in the starting line-up in absence of regular and experienced defenders, earned him a move to Zanaco FC.
And Zanaco coach, Mumamba Numba, expressed excitement at the development saying the player had proven his worth to the technical bench.
Numba said that the signing of the 18 year old was for a long term objective as the boy had a bright future and would add value to his backline.
“We are very excited to have signed Golden from Chilenje Happy Hearts Academy, he proved himself well to the entire technical bench during the two pre-season training camps,” Numba said.
“The boy is a developmental player with a bright future, his addition to our squad will add value to the core of our backline and he will be a real asset to us,” he said.
Zanaco plays rivals, ZESCO united, in its first game of the season next weekend while the bankers would have to join the CAF Confederations Cup in the second round of the competition.
