Chicken Inn kick off pre season



With a new coach and the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League season starting in March, Chicken Inn have started their preparations with ambitions of impressing in the upcoming campaign.

Tactician Mandla Mpofu has taken charge of the side following the tragic death of Warriors legend Adam Ndlovu in a car accident in December last year.

Mpofu, who admits expectations are high for the new term, says the first few days of pre-season training have been productive. He also revealed Zephaniah Ngodzo has started training with the club.

“We are back in training and there are some few new players we are looking at,” said Mpofu.

“We want to continue building a strong team just like we did last season. The season ahead will be tough because of the way we performed last season. Everyone will be noticing us so we have to be on top of our game at all times. But so far the few first days of training have been good,” concluded Mpofu.

Chicken Inn finished fifth in the standings last year with 47 points – 22 points adrift of champions Dynamos.
