BULAWAYO Chiefs striker Obriel Chirinda has become the first player in the 2023 Castle Lager Premier Soccer League season to reach double figures on the goal-scorers’ charts.

Chirinda netted his 10th goal of the season in the Ninjas colours when they beat Dynamos 2-1 at Barbourfields on Saturday.

Chirinda now leads the goal scorers’ charts, one ahead of Fortune Binzi of Manica Diamonds.

In July, Chirinda was named the Footballers Union of Zimbabwe [FUZ] Player of the Month.

“It’s always good for your club and I’m happy we are still pressing on.

“The league season is a marathon and I’m happy that we are still picking up points.

“I look forward to scoring more goals for my club. It’s all about teamwork and I’m very much grateful to my coaches,” said Chirinda.

The former Chicken Inn forward was wanted by Highlanders during the second transfer window which closed on July 31.
