Chris Semakweri might be past his peak but he is still as valuable to any dressing room as he was during his prime time.

The 34 year old who made a switch from Golden Eagles to newboys MWOS during the off season has already hit the ground running establishing himself as a vital cog of the Norton based team in their early days in the Northern Region Soccer League.

Semakweri with so much experience gained while turning out for Monomotapa, TP Mazembe in the DRC and the Warriors, is now using his knowledge and longevity in football to motivate the youngsters at MWOS as the club seeks to win the league title at the end of the season.

“You know in football there are different components that mould a winning team. There are a lot of aspects that are put in place for results to be attained at the end of the season,” Semakweri said.

” As a senior player, my role is also to guide these youngsters on how to handle situations during matches, how to deal with off field distractions and remain focused throughout the campaign. I managed to achieve what I achieved because of guidance that I got from my seniors then so I’m also there to help these youngsters realise their dreams.”

Semakweri who was given the responsibility to captain MWOS said he has realised from his experience not to underrate any opponents and as such is not taking Banket United lightly ahead of their clash at Ngoni stadium in Norton on Saturday.

“In football you can’t use the outcome of the previous match to judge your next opponent. Yes it might give you confidence, like we won away to Trojan Stars but Banket United are a different component altogether. We just need to be focused all the time because underestimating an opponent is very dangerous. Yes we are looking at collecting maximum points against Banket United but we are not dwelling much on the result of the Trojan Stars match because it’s now water the bridge.”

“A lot has been said about us being one of the teams with the potential to win the league title but we are not putting ourselves under pressure. The league is still in its infancy and the most important thing is to target game by game until we get to the end of the season.”

Former Dynamos and Black Rhinos goalkeeper Blessing Mwandimutsira is one of the experienced new signings at MWOS along with ex Come Again captain Kudzai Zhuwaki and former Golden Eagles duo of Jim Gwara and Tafadzwa Nyabunze. The Wonder Ngoko coached team also have former Shabanie Mine and Mutare City defender Admire ‘Yaya’ Dzumbunu on their books.
