Chippa seal deal for 'new Lorch'


Chippa United have announced the signing of Phumlani Maziya from Jomo Cosmos.

Maziya, who has been likened to Orlando Pirates midfielder Thembinkosi Lorch, has signed a two-year deal with the option to renew.

"It’s a pleasure for me to be joining Chippa United. It’s an exciting club with great players and I look forward to my time here. I would like thank the chairman [Siviwe Mpengesi] for the opportunity that he has given me," said Maziya.

The 23-year-old made his National First Division debut for Magesi FC in the 2016/17 season but joined Cosmos after they were relegated, becoming a key player for Ezenkosi.

The Chilli Boys have also signed Lehlohonolo Masalesa, Diamond Thopola, Meshack Maphangule, Kelvin Moyo, Elvis Moyo, Sandile Mthethwa, Augustine Kwem and Mzikayise Mashaba.
