Zambia U-17 national team trio join Shamuel Academy
Lusaka Division One side, Shamuel Academy has acquired the services of three Zambia U-17 players in captain Miguel Changa Chaiwa, Onesimus Chipango, and Chipyoka Songa.
Songa, Chaiwa, and Chipango have each penned a four year deal with Shamuel with an option to extend should they impress.
Shamuel confirmed the acquisition of the 2019 U-17 COSAFA winning trio in a statement on their official Facebook page monitored by the ZamFoot Crew.
“Songa Chipyoka Zambia under 17 National team attacking Midfielder has sealed a deal at Shamuel soccer Academy. Chipyoka has been one of the most prolific midfielders in the Championship this season.”
“We have also signed Miguel Changa Chaiwa also Zambia under 17 National team player from Morkved Sports Club and Onesimus Chipango a Zambia under 17 National team player as well from Solwezi Academy.”
The trio was very instrumental in the Zambia U-17 National team’s triumph in Malawi and is expected to add value to the club owned by Russian based Chipolopolo star Evans Kangwa.
Shamuel Sports Director Fred Bwalya believes the boys could be a huge success with the Noel Phiri coached side.
“We are delighted to welcome the boys at Shamuel. I think they could be a big success. The deals will see the boys remain at Shamuel for the next 4 season, with a chance to extend their stay if they are a success,” Bwlaya said.
“The boys are young, homegrown players who we hope can continue to develop and improve. We will allow them to work with all of the right tools in our environment and look forward to seeing how far they can progress.”
When the league came to a halt back in March Shamuel had played 20 games and amassed 24 points sitting in 9th place on the Lusaka Division One log table.
