Metacha has joined Kilimanjaro-based Polisi Tanzania as a free agent after ending a two-year contract with historical champions, Yanga.

The goalkeeper said that since joining the team he has had a good start and he eagerly waits for the league's start to fulfill his new responsibilities with the team.

"I am thankful since I joined the Polisi Tanzania, I have been getting a lot of support from my teammates and officials which makes me want to play for my team," Metacha revealed.

Last season, Mnata was punished by Yanga for misconduct, he showed a section of the outfit's fans the middle finger after a Premier League clash agains Ruvu Shooting, played in Dar es Salaam, which ended with Yanga cruising to 3-2 victory.

Meanwhile, Dar es Salaam's Kinondoni Municipal Council FC has made it clear that the squad is aiming at finishing in one of the top four positions in this season's Mainland Premier League.

The squad is set to begin its search for succesfull campaign in the top flight by taking on Polisi Tanzania at the latter's backyard on September 29.  

The KMC FC had set up a temporary camp at the seaside town of Morogoro.

The side has brought in several new entries, including forward Miraji Athuman who was turning out for Simba SC, Awesu Ally and Iddi Kipagwile from Azam FC who are on loan.

It also has veteran defender Hassan Kesy, who turned out for Mtibwa Sugar the previous season, but is currently starting a new challenge at KMC FC.

Christina Mwagala, KMC FC Information Officer, noted that the main thing they need is to get positive results in the new season.

“Preparations are going well and every player needs to see to it everything that is planned is fulfilled. The key thing at the moment is to keep preparing for our matches. We believe we will do well," she said.

One of the club's leaders insisted his side is ready for the new season, pointing out that there is a lot of confidence in the existence of plans to continue where they left off last season and the mistakes they made last season will be addressed.

Christina said nothing is impossible so it is a matter of time before the league starts.

The official pointed out: "Nothing is impossible, last season we started well but there are mistakes that we could have made that the technical bench will work to prevent recurrence."

"For the new season we need to win the league's title as we have done a good registration and the players should fulfill their responsibilities so the fans will continue to support us," she said.
