Zimbabwean Teen Striker Joins Bashford United In England
A Zimbabwean striker Luther Munakandafa has joined Basford United Football Club on loan.
He joins from Vanarama National League side Notts County until December.
Bashford United is a football club based in Basford, a suburb of Nottingham, England. They are currently members of the Southern League Premier Division Central and play at Greenwich Avenue.
The Zimbabwean joined County’s youth set-up last year and immediately made his mark, earning himself the opportunity to train regularly with the first team throughout the 2021/22 campaign.
His performances in those sessions, coupled with his form for the under-19s, impressed the first-team coaching staff enough to give him the chance to progress.
