Cape Town - Ubuntu Cape Town striker, Ranga Chivaviro, has penned a deal with Absa Premiership side Baroka FC the club announced.

The striker, who was on course for the golden boot award until his injury mid-season took him out of action, has made the move with immediate effect.

Chivaviro was an integral part of Ubuntu’s first NFD campaign, and his goals early in the season contributed to the club avoiding reegation on the final day.

Although the 25-year old missed the last two months of the season with an ankle sprain, he still managed to end off with 13 goals and his league tally of 11 was just four shy of the coveted NFD Golden Boot award.

"I’m really excited for Ranga’s move," Ubuntu coach, Casey Prince said. "Ranga was a big part of our success last year and we’re thankful for his efforts.

"Ranga was interested in improving and growing his game so that he could go to the next level," said Prince. "I personally enjoyed spending time with Ranga off the field. He’s a man of character, faith, and integrity which will make him a valuable member of the team at Baroka," he concluded.
