Jimmy Ndhlovu to retire at the end of the season 

Kabwe Warriors striker Jimmy Ndhlovu will retire at the end of the current season, both the player and the club have confirmed. 

Ndhlovu has been on the books of Kabwe Warriors since 2019. 

The striker took to social media to confirm his retirement with an emotional statement. 

“On the 19th of Jan 2019 I signed for this magnificent team Kabwe Warriors’s been a great journey as a football player and a person but it’s time to say goodbye to this team that i hold so dearly to my heart and revamped my career when i almost gave up.

Many thanks to everyone who welcomed me,the past chairman Mr Dinghall and the current one Mr N’gandu Mutale.

Furthermore,my gratitude goes to the sponsors Zambia Railways also for keeping my paycheck intact.” 

He also went on to thank the coaches, players and the fans who have all stood by him during his stay in Kabwe. 

“To my coaches and teammates, grounds men,chefs and security guards zikomo kwambili.

Finally the Kabwe Warriors passionate and faithful fans..i appreciate u alot for the love and support,we shall be meeting.Its sad i wont be with the first team anymore..some wise guy once said “leave football before it leaves u”.I know we created wonderful memories..Goodbye ba Kabwe-walya kake aliye mulandu⚽️Masiku nilelo,ang’oni aluta❤️Godbless🙏.”

Ndhlovu has played for a number of Zambian clubs including both Kitwe giants, Power Dynamos and Nkana. 

At Kabwe Warriors he had a lot of memorable moments including his last day of the season hat-trick that helped the Magnificent People’s team end their 28-year continental absence to qualify for the 2021/2022 CAF Confederation Cup.

Ndhlovu’s three goals in Warriors’ 3-2 home win over Indeni on the final day of the 2020/2021 FAZ Super League season on June 27 sealed the Kabwe clubs’ top four finish to qualify for the CAF Confederation Cup.

The assassin as he is fondly called by many will surely be missed by the fans of Kabwe Warriors and Zambian Super League football at large.
