KADOMA – COME Again Football Club has finally appointed a new coach, Bigboy Mawiwi,
after what it says was “a thorough vetting process”.
The new coach immediately vowed to build a formidable team, while developing young talent in
the town.
The Kadoma-based side appointed Mawiwi after their former head coach. Wonder Ngoko, left
early this year.
Mawiwi comes in with vast experience as he has coached various teams in the Premier Soccer
League, Northern Region Division One Soccer League and abroad.
In an interview Mawiwi, said he was humbled to have been selected as head coach of Come
Again FC.
He said the club was set to hold trials this past week (from the 31 st of January to 4 th of February,
2023).
I havent started yet and as far as I am concerned, I am starting from scratch, which is January
31. I am starting with trials for the whole week.
The seasoned coach said he wants to build a team that is fearless, while working together with
other departments.
I want to build a formidable side for the people of Kadoma. I know the people of Kadoma they
are very demanding, hence I have to work hard.
Its not going to be easy but we have to work together, the executive, the technical department,
the supporters and stakeholders of the game, said Mawiwi.
The veteran coach, who likes attacking football, hopes to work with young players and help
develop them.
On drug abuse, which is wreaking havoc in the country Mawiwi said that some players were
doing drugs as they do not like to work.
The biggest challenge in this job these days is that some players are into drugs and don't like to
work, so its my prayer that I will get God-fearing players who are focused and develop into
international stars.

Football fans always want a win result and the coach understands the fans’ demands.
In football there are three results – win, draw and loss. Losing is part of the game, so I accept
and understand the feelings of the supporters, who under normal circumstances, want their team
never to lose.”
He said he would take a game at a time as it was a process with a new team and new players.
I will try my level best to develop players in Kadoma and surrounding areas, by grooming
young players and playing entertaining football, said Mawiwi.
Come Again vice-chairman Dick Dumba said that they had appointed Mawiwi because of his
experience.
We, as a club which wants to go higher up the ladder thats the reason we chose a coach with
vast experience so that he takes us up. We are looking forward to working with him in good
spirit.
The executive also set the coachs targets with a brief to groom players.
His target is to take the team to a well recognised position and groom as many youngsters as he
can.”
Mawiwi previously coached Hwange and Harare City and won the Coach of the Year Award in
2013. He also had a stint in Eswatini.
