“Luton-born striker (Matthew Takawira) joined Kenilworth Road as an under-12. Joining his boyhood club has been the highlight of his career so far and hopes to represent Zimbabwe at youth level this season,” the club said on the website.

Takawira’s switch is a boost to the country’s efforts to build a strong foundation for the national team.

The country was recently readmitted to international football and one of ZIFA Nomalisation Committee’s targets is set up junior structures to feed the national teams.
