FORMER Highlanders defender Brighton Dube is now club hunting as his contract with How Mine expired on 31 December.
Dube, who did not feature in the team’s 2015 season campaign, did not renew his contract with the Gold miners and will be attending various trials hoping to impress coaches before the season starts.
“Come January I will be a free agent meaning it’s that time again where out of contract players will be looking for jobs since mine has also expired,” said Dube.
Although Dube had a running contract with How Mine he did not feature in any of the club’s matches and he was not on their bench more often than not meaning that he already knew his fate before the season came to an end.
Dube can easily be mentioned as one of the brightest players who never realised his full potential.
While at Bosso he emerged as one of the deadliest left footers and with his cultured left foot he could pack a long range shot which could trouble a goalkeeper anywhere.
It won him praises from many including the then How Mine coach Philani “Beefy” Ncube who lured him to the Gold miners in a team which was touted as the “killing machine”.
The squad included the likes of George Magariro, Ephraim Mazarura, Nyasha Mukumbi, Gilbert Banda, Wonder Sithole, Morris Kadzola, Kudakwashe Musharu, Tendai Ngulube, Courage Denias, Donovan Benard, Marvel Samaneka, James Chitereki, Blessing Sande, Edmore Muzanenhamo, Brighton Dube and Marere.
However, most of the players who failed to impress as well as bring success to the club were subsequently shown the exit door under Masomere’s rebuilding exercise.
Dube is adamant that although he did not play any competitive football for almost a year, he will secure a job when the season starts.
“I have been training hard, it’s only a matter of adjusting to the coach’s requirement and I’m good to go,” concluded Dube.
