The lowveld based, Triangle Football Club has officially signed three players out of their targeted seven as the transfer market gets busy ahead of the 2018 premier soccer league season.
263Chat can confirm that the Sugar Sugar boys have secured the services of former Tsholotsho FC goalkeeper Chang Marion, Hwange FC, Delic Murimba and former Harare City and Caps United player, Arnold Chivheya.
In an interview with Abraham Chinemaringa, Triangle FC Secretary General, he said his team is looking to bolster its squad ahead of the new season and build from their position last year.
“We have a number of new faces that are going to be in the team to replace those who did not impress the coaches last season, but we will have the names of the players out next week because we are still talking to their teams.
“This season we are aiming for a good run in the league and we are targeting a better position on the log.
“End of last season, the coaches did trials which the local players as a way of promoting our own talent in the lowveld region.
“The coach Taurai Mangwiro is also looking forward to good season, he is not promising heaven on earth but is sure of mounting a strong challenge for the crown,” said Chinemaringa.
Mangwiro said he is preparing a team that will uplift the profile of teams from the lowveld and is determined to succeed considering that Triangle FC has adequate resources to bring quality players.
“As we are all on earth we cannot promise each other heaven but like every coach by the beginning of the season he likes to win and us as Triangle we need to assemble a team that will be able to have results.
“I hope the club will use the buying power so that we compensate last year’s performance which saw us losing most of our away games and finished 9th on the log,” said Mangwiro
Triangle is set to kickoff their season preparations on the 23rd of this month.
When Triangle won the Eastern Region Division One League title in 2012, they became the first team in 42 years from the Lowveld to gain promotion into the Premier Soccer League followed by the now defunct Chiredzi FC coached by the nomadic gaffer, Moses Chunga.
