Ethan Brooks

AmaZulu FC chairman Sandile Zungu has confirmed the signings of Ethan Brooks and Rally Bwalya ahead of the 2022-23 season.

Brooks has been signed by Usuthu from fellow PSL club TS Galaxy, while Bwalya joins the KwaZulu-Natal giants from Tanzanian giants Simba SC.

AmaZulu have now made a total of eight new signings so far and Zungu expressed his delight as the Durban-based club prepares for the new campaign.

“We are very delighted that so soon after the 2021/22 season we’ve got so busy in the transfer market,” Zungu said.

“You would have seen us announcing six signings, now we have included two additional players, that makes it eight. Three at the back, three in the middle of the park and two front line players.”

“We have Thendo Mukumela from Cape Town Spurs, we have Veluyeke Zulu who was playing from Chippa United, Riaan Hanamub, a left-back who comes from Chippa United,” he continued.

“Dumisani Zuma, a very formidable number 10, false number nine who comes from Kaizer Chiefs. We have Rally Bwalya, a Zambian international who plays for Simba SC in Tanzania.

“Augustine Kwem who comes from TS Galaxy, Ethan Brooks, a very young player who also comes from TS Galaxy, as well Gabadinho Mhango, a Malawian international who played for Orlando Pirates.”

Zungu revealed that two more players will be signed by the club and he pointed out that this shows how serious the team is about their ambitions for the upcoming season.

“With these eight signings… we have two more by the way that we are talking to,” the Umlazi-born businessman added.

“Great experienced players and if we agree the terms (with them) we will announce them before the team goes to camp or before we start with pre-season.

“With these signings, we are basically saying we mean business.”
