PREMIERSHIP debutantes Flame Lily have signed the trio of Moses Demera, Tendai Huwa and Prosper Chigumba from Division One on loan as they continue beefing up their squad. The deal for the three players was concluded on Thursday and they will be with the club for this season on a one-year contract.

Flame Lily vice-chairperson, Tendayi “Zulu” Chaponda confirmed yesterday that they have acquired the services of Demera, Huwa and goalkeeper Chigumba.

“I have got the clearance now for the three players – Tendai Huwa, Prosper Chigumba and Moses Demera.

“It’s now official, they have moved to Flame Lily. The deal was concluded yesterday (Thursday) when we made the payment.

“They will be with us for one year on loan,” said Chaponda.

Chaponda said initially they had wanted four players from the former Premiership champions including defender Justice Jangano, who is currently training with CAPS United.

“Initially, we had identified four players, including Justice Jangano, but he is at CAPS now. He was training with us but he just left and we don’t know what he is planning.

“He had already signed a contract but we are so lenient we didn’t ask him to get the clearance.

“The deal is still open for him to come back, we were just waiting to pay and that was the time he left for CAPS but we still have got his contract he signed and we were just waiting for his clearance. But we don’t want to force players to come for the sake of coming,” said Chaponda.

Chaponda said they just would want to bring in one more defender but noted that they were not desperate since they already have good players.

“I am just acting according to the requests of the technical team and they have said they would have wanted to have him (Jangano) and their squad will be fine. We will definitely need another defender but even without one we are okay.

‘It’s not like we don’t have other players, we do have but I mean he is a good player but we do have replacements.

“We had more than 40 players but now we have trimmed down the team and we are left with 30 to 35 players,” said Chaponda.

The prison officers have also roped in Isaac Madziva and Ashley Ganya from ZRP Morris to strengthen their team.
