Zimbabwe prospect Chirewa makes first team debut at Wolves 


Highly rated Zimbabwean starlet Tawanda Chirewa made his Wolves senior team debut on Friday evening in a FA Cup third round fixture against Brentford.

Chirewa, 20, has been training with the senior team in the last three months and has made match day squads in a number of matches this season.

On Friday night, he came on as a 90th minute substitute in a game that finished 1-1 which meant the two teams will now face off in a replay.

Chirewa becomes the latest Zimbabwean to make his senior debut this season.

Last month, Newcastle United forward Michael Ndiweni made his debut in the EPL, while Sheffield Wednesday’s Joey Phuthi had his first senior appearance for the club last week.

Chirewa was on the bench for the Arsenal game.

Before joining Wolves, at 16 years and 31 days, Chirewa became Ipswich Town’s second youngest first-team player when he made his debut in the EFL Trophy tie at Colchester in November 2019.

He signed his first professional contract with Ipswich Town in November 2020 when he was aged 17.
