CASTLE Lager Premier Soccer League club Triangle head coach Kelvin Kaindu says he is happy with his side’s preparations ahead of the 2015 season expected to start on March 7.
The former Highlanders coach signed a two-year contract at the Sugar Sugar Boys recently and will be assisted by the club’s former head coach Biggie Zuze.
“I think our preparations are shaping up and we are almost done since we are also expecting to name our squad tomorrow (today). We have addressed almost most of the positions that we needed to beef up,” he said.
“This season we don’t want to fight relegation, what we are aiming at is at least building a team that will compete and l believe we are almost there.
Some of the issues will be addressed when we start to play friendlies very soon,” he added.
The One Wallet Cup winners have almost retained their 2014 squad in towering defender Chastern Ndongonda, dribbling wizard Lameck Nhamo, defenders William Mapfumo, Jimmy Tigere, Brian Juwayeyi and Blessing Chimwamuchere.
Some of the players who are expected to play a pivotal role this term are goalkeeper Ronald Mudimu, strikers Richard Kawondera and Felix Kuswatuka.
The side have already acquired the services of former Chiredzi FC player Malvern Gaki, Zambian striker Antony Sakala, ZPC Kariba players Ephraim Mwinga, Peter Muzondo and ex-Highlanders player Dumisani Ndlovu.
Kaindu will also be reunited with Pasca Manhanga whom he coached at Bosso for a short spell.
Manhanga said: “I think l had an average season last term, but this year l am hoping to do better and l am working very hard.
We have talented players at the club and this is good for competition.
“At Triangle l always feel at home and l am not looking at the past.
We have played together with most of the players and the environment is good and we are very hopeful that this season we are going to write a successful story.”
