Phiri Joins Swallows 15/07/04
Alfred Phiri has joined Moroka Swallows on a one-year deal with the option of extending his contract for one more year.

The former Ajax Cape Town captain left the Urban Warriors after the two parties failed to agree terms and the midfielder is set to return to his Johannesburg home.

Phiri played an integral in Ajax finishing second in the castle Premiership and will add to the quality and steel in the Swallows midfield.

Coach Gavin Hunt confirmed Phiri's signing to the Bird's website and gave his views on how the 30-year-old will fit into his planning.

"I think Alfred (Phiri) and Goodman Mazibuko (Swallows captain) will complement each other perfectly," said Hunt.

"They are both quality players who read the game exceptionally well."

Phiri's previous clubs include Alexandra United, Jomo Cosmos, Genclerbirligi, Vanspor, Samsunspor and Ajax Cape Town.

Hunt also revealed that he is looking to strengthen up his defence, but admitted that they are still looking around.

"We need to stabilise our defence. We are looking around you know."

When asked about the Birds' chances in the upcoming season, the former Black Leopards and Hellenic coach said: "It's hard to say. We need to come out stronger this season.

"The boys didn't do much wrong last season, we just need to grind out results and with a bit of luck we will be up there."
