EZULWINI – A big catch!

Elite league rookies Tinyosi FC have added to the experienced Ndumiso ‘Sikhokho’ Shongwe from Manzini Sea Birds. The former Denver Sundowns midfielder, who also plays in defensive positions, signed a two-year contract with the Lobamba-based team. Sources close to the matter said he was signed in the 11th hour on the day of the registration deadline. The deadline was last Friday at 5pm for elite and National First Division League teams, while it was extended for regional and women football clubs. “Our director Mbuso Dlamini handles issue of new players, he is best positioned to comment,” said Tinyosi FC’s PRO Thobile Dlamini yesterday. No immediate comment was obtained from the team’s director, but the player was sought, he confirmed that he had left Sea Birds for Tinyosi. “It’s true I am with Tinyosi and I’m happy to have joined them,” he said.

He also did not deny that his commitment to the club was for two years. Shongwe said the transfer happened last Friday after Sea Birds had released him. Shongwe was a regular at Sea Birds last season since he rejoined the club from Sundowns. It was Sea Birds who introduced him to elite level from the Hhohho Super League side Buka United of Ezulwini. Comment was also sought from Shongwe’s new coach Sifiso ‘Nuro’ Ntibane, but in vain. Nonetheless, the new signing, their biggest in this initial window period, is said to have been inspired by the fact that there was experience already in the side, while their MTN Premier League start also had a hand. Tinyosi have four points in two matches and play Mbabane Highlanders next when football resumes again. Government has currently suspended sports as the country is in lockdown for two weeks since over a week ago due to rising numbers of COVID-19 positive cases and deaths.
