Moyale Barracks has revealed plans to recruit at least 8 new players in the 2019 January transfer market to beef up its squad .
The team is among the two military sides which survived relegation after their fellow soldiers, Red Lions and MAFCO faced the chop.
Moyale Barracks coach, Charles Kamanga, said the decision follows a poor performance by the team during the 2018 TNM Super League season.
Kamanga said: “We want to recruit new players because there are some players in the club who have served for a long time and they need a replacement with flesh blood and we are targeting all the positions from goal keeping to striking force.”
He said apart from getting players from other super league clubs the team will fetch young talent from rural areas across the country and so far he has already identified three from Kasungu.
The Lions of Kaning’ina struggled during the previous season which they finished 13th on the 16 teams table, just a step up from relegation zone.
The squad will return to the pitch in February to start preparations for the 2019 season after finishing the previous season with only 35 points collected from all their 30 games played.
Soccer commentators in the country have attributed the poor performance of military sides to official duties that saw key players for the clubs being assigned to other duties outside the country.
