Zim pair trying out at Cosmos



Zimbabwe internationals Harrington Shereni and Joseph Ngwenya have stepped up their training regime with Jomo Cosmos with the hope of signing contracts with the National First Division side.

Both players had accompanied Portsmouth star Benjani Nwaruwari to Ezenkosi’s grounds on Monday morning and were spotted in training with the rest of the squad.

Shereni, a centre back of repute, last played for Nantes in the French Premier Division and has won over 30 caps for Zimbabwe at international level, while Ngwenya, who plays as an attacking midfielder, was previously in the books of Major Soccer League (MLS) side DC United.

Meanwhile, Ezenkosi confirmed the capturing of the highly rated former former Bloemfontein Celtic striker Lethola Mofokeng on a one-year contract early in the week.

The 27-year-old, who graduated from the Jomo Cosmos Academy in 2006, thus returned to his roots after spending the last three seasons playing for Black Leopards, Mpumalanga Black Aces and Bloemfontein Celtic.

“I am very delighted to be back home, and I am positive that my contributions can help this team bounce back to its winning ways,” Mofokeng told the club website.

Mofokeng previously attended trials with French Ligue1 side Lille at the peak of his career and was once touted as an emerging star before a spate of injuries and loss of form stalled his progress.

However, he was still able to prove his mettle by scoring a combined total of 18 goals for Black Leopards and Black Aces in two seasons, while hitting the net four times for Celtic in 2011-2012.
