“We have recruited three midfielders and two strikers because we concentrated much on improving our strike force. We had problems getting the goals last season and the technical bench advised we get new players upfront,” Club secretary Owen Chimpinde told Zambia Daily Mail.

The other players include goalkeeper Masosa Bola and midfielder Pumba Kaniki both from Democratic Republic of Congo, Austin Banda from Mufulira Wanderers, Dickson Chapa formerly of Konkola Blades and striker Signs Chibambo from Nakambala Leopards.
