Bosso to finalise squad by Friday

PLAYERS training with Highlanders Football Club for the 2013 Castle Lager Premiership season will know whether they are part of the team's plans by Friday.

Coach Kelvin Kaindu confirmed yesterday that they would release non-performers who came as trialists this year and those who have been in their books since last year.

Kaindu said this was being done to allow players to look for clubs before the transfer-window closes at the start of the season. He said it was a rational stance by the club to allow the players to undergo decent trials that could secure them contracts.

"We should be finalising our team by the end of the week. We have seen the new boys and what they can offer, we have some of our old players training with the club and there could be a need to offload some of them so that they open room for new arrivals.

"Some could also take the time to look for clubs that could give them game time so that we could have a look at them from the other side by mid-season. We are working on a good team that should give us results," said Kaindu.

The gaffer who left last night for Zambia where he will be until Monday, said he would look around for a striker there.

"I am going to sort out my passport, there is just one page left in it. I will be back on Monday. I am hoping to link up with my contacts in Zambia possibly for a striker to bring to Highlanders. But that will be subject to the club's finances and budget," said Kaindu.

Bosso has for a while been struggling to get a natural striker to score goals.

Graham Ncube, Thabani Moyo, Njabulo "Mtakamama" Ncube and Cleopas Dube seem set to be the strikers entrusted with scoring goals.

Graham started off strongly last season but fizzled out during the mid-season period as has become the norm.

Bosso, boasting of creativity in midfield should have a more positive forward thrust towards the opposition goal.

There is so much of zig-zag play from the back through midfield that has often left even their strikers confused as to which pockets of empty space to attack.

As a result they have come second best to a Dynamos side, which plays direct attacking football.

During the Bob 89 Super Cup first leg against Dynamos on Sunday, Bosso enjoyed long spells of possession but because players toyed around with the ball a lot, they were left to rue delayed attacks.

Bosso chairman Peter Dube confirmed last night that they would probably hear from the technical team about the players to be released by Monday.

Gilbert Banda is believed to be among the casualties and a number of junior players who failed to impress despite being among the 30 players registered by the club last year who will be released.

Sources close to the technical team said the former national team defender's pace was a cause for concern.

A fit Banda is one of the best defenders on the local scene.

Meanwhile, Highlanders finished the recruitment of coaches for its junior teams by appointing highly qualified Dumaza Dube to the Under-14 and 16 teams to work with former junior player Dan Ngwenya.

Mark Mathe was retained to take charge of the Division Two side and will assist Gift Lunga (Junior) in the Under-18s as Bosso seek to retain their status as the best nurturers of talent.

Mathe has been with the club for over three years now and at one stage was assistant coach of the first team.

Dumaza who assisted Mkhuphali Masuku, apart from his junior team responsibilities in 2011, was fired by the club last year with Bosso at that time saying they did not want a part-timer.

Dumaza has since 2010 been used by Zifa to identify talent for all junior age-group national teams and is the Bulawayo Province development coach.




He has an eye for talent and is a good technical man who many believe will see him succeed like his predecessors at the club Ali Dube, the late Benjamin Moyo, Philani Mabhena and the late Simms Mukorongo.

Bosso has of late been struggling to come up with juniors who at 16-18 years make an impact in the first team like did yesteryear players like Peter Ndlovu, Gift Lunga (Senior), the late Makheyi Nyathi, Nkululeko Dlodlo, Thabani Moyo and Wayne Albertyn.
