Phiri hoping to lift trophy 16/07/04
Former Ajax Cape Town captain Alfred Phiri failed to have his contract with the Urban Warriors renewed, but the midfielder is delighted to have signed for an ambitious like Moroka Swallows.

Former Ajax Cape Town captain Alfred Phiri failed to have his contract with the Urban Warriors renewed, but the midfielder is delighted to have signed for an ambitious like Moroka Swallows.

"In as much as I had established myself with Ajax, I am not afraid of taking on new challenges in football," said Phiri after his first training session with the Birds.

The much travelled player admitted that his first priority was to work hard in training and hopefully everything will fall into place after that.

"Hard work at training is the only thing that is going to guarantee me a place in Gavin Hunt's team and not what I have done with the clubs that I played for before," he said.

Phiri also conceded to being impressed by coach Hunt during his first training session with the Birds and revealed the former Hellenic and Black Leopards coach has a way of making players want to play for him.

"I haven't had a one-on-one talk with him, but what I saw today is the passion the players show on training and it is only because the coach brings the best from his players," he admitted.

The hard tackling midfielder is hoping to lift his first league title with his new team, which have become serious contenders for Castle Premiership title under the astute guidance of Hunt.

"I can not say that Swallows will lift the Castle Premiership league title because I am still new, but age is not on my side and it will be a great honour for me to lift that trophy which has been eluding me all my career with the Dube Birds," he added.
