South Melbourne sign former Hyundai A-League striker

Former Perth Glory striker Ndumba Makeche has joined Victorian NPL outfit South Melbourne.

The 26-year-old joins the club after playing the last few seasons in Malaysia.

Makeche, who was born in Zambia, made a handful of appearances for Glory in the Hyundai A-League between 2012 and '14.

After leaving Perth, he joined Felda in Malaysia where he scored 15 goals in 35 games, before linking with Sarawak where he scored 11 times from 21 appearances.

“We have confidence Ndumba will deliver exciting football for us here at South Melbourne,” coach Sasa Kolman said on the club’s website.

“He will link in well with our attacking line-up showing us the talent he displayed in the A-League at Perth Glory and then overseas in Malaysia.

“His maturity and experience will serve us well throughout the year.”
