We are pleased to confirm that the Club has agreed terms with Asavela "Shakespeare" Mbekile .
Mbekile, born on 1st November 1986, is a strong 26 year old box to box midfielder with a high work-rate.
He played for Chippa United in the second half of this last season, and is formerly of FC Cape Town and Cape Town Allstars.
The Coach and our other players rate him highly and he has really impressed during his trial.
Mbekile becomes the fourth player to join the Birds after midfielder Tshwarelo Bereng (from United FC), left-back Levi Lekgodi (from Mbabane Highlanders, Swaziland) and goalkeeper Igor Bondzulic (from FK Jagodina, Serbia).
"This is a big club and a big challenge for me, stepping up into the Premier Soccer League again. I hope to have a good season this year and do well for the Dube Birds and most importantly I’m looking forward to working with everyone,” said the young Shakespeare.
We are excited to have him on board, and wish him a very successful tenure in the Nest.
