ZIFA Northern Region Division One newboys, Golden Eagles, have signed five players, including a number of veterans, in a show of ambition to make a huge impact.

The Eagles, who are under the guidance of former Warriors winger Joel “Dubai’’ Luphahla, have blended youth and experience, for the upcoming campaign, which gets underway tomorrow. 

“Gondoharishaye,” as the team are affectionately known, has brought on board several seasoned players into their ranks, including former Dynamos and Highlanders goalkeeper, Munyaradzi Diya.

Former Monomotapa midfielder, Chris “Maskiri” Samakwere, is also a new recruit at the club whose directors are media personalities, Barry Mnandi and Mike Madoda. 

Raymond Uchena, who was with Premiership side Harare City, has been roped into the team. 

He joins a side which now have Dominic Mukandi, who had a stint with both Dynamos and CAPS United, and goalkeeper Lloyd Majarira, within their ranks. 

The team were promoted from Harare Province Division Two after 2019 winners, Prisons FC, failed to affiliate in time. 

Golden Eagles want to have a professional set-up and unveiled the kits, which they will use this season, in Harare yesterday. 

Their golden shirts have the Borussia Dortmund shade and could have been inspired by Madoda’s visit to watch the German giants in action, a few years ago.

Both Madoda and Mnandi are Liverpool fans. 

However, things change when it comes to the domestic scene with Madoda having grown up supporting Highlanders. 

Mnandi is unapologetic about his love affair with Dynamos. 

Three years ago, Mnandi tried to have a crack on the ZIFA board, after coming to the conclusion he could serve his country better, from the trenches of administration.

However, he was forced to pull out of race, after being shocked by the underhand deals, which needed to be cut, for one to land a post on the board. 

He has now chosen to concentrate on serving his game as a director of a football club.
