Chippa sign ex-AmaZulu goalkeeper

Transfer News

Mzimela, 33, joined Chippa as free agent after parting ways with Cape Umoya United before the transfer window closed in August.

A Chilli Boys official confirmed Mzimela has penned a two-year contract with the Port Elizabeth-based outfit.

"We had only two goalkeepers registered with the club this season," says the official.

"We have been searching for a keeper and fortunately Mzimela was available and a free agent."

Mzimela was on the bench during Chippa's 1-0 win over Free State Stars last night, as he provided cover to Nigerian Daniel Akpeyi at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.

Coach Eric Tinkler also has Veli Mothwa as an option in goal. 

Tinkler is also currently assessing ex-SuperSport United utility player Thato Mokeke and former Bidvest Wits midfielder Miguel Timm.
