From left to right, Adam Chicksen(Bradford City, England), Silas Songani (Sønderjyske, Denmark), Alec Mudimu (Cefn Druids, Wales) and Cliff Moyo (Halifax Town, England).
Zimbabwe-Warriors substantive coach, Sunday Chidzambwa has opted to assess another batch of British-based youngsters in the upcoming Zambia's four nations tournament as he named a 20-member squad that includes three new British-based youngsters.

Sunday Chidzambwa announced his Warriors squad to do battle in Zambia on Tuesady, omitting the first British-Brigade batch of Macauley Bonne, Tendayi Darikwa, Kundai Benyu and Admiral Muskwe opting for a second batch of Cliff Moyo, Alec Mudimu, Adam Chicksen and the return of Denmark based Silas Songani.

Cliff Moyo (24) is a talented right-back currently with FC Halifax Town where he joined at the beginning of 2016/17 season from National League North side, Trafford FC.

Moyo has enjoyed an unorthodox route to football having not properly played until at the age of 16, combining his tertiary education and part time stints at local clubs.

He previously played for Droylsden, Northwich, Barrrow, Trafford and Alfreton Town before he signed for Hilifax Town where he has featured 21 times plus 10 goal assist this season.

Adam Thomas Chicksen (26) is another highly rated left-back currently with League One side, Bradford City. Chicksen was born in England to Zimbabwean father with Chinese heritage and English mother and has had a successful rise in the English football with various clubs including Maculey Bonne's Leyton Orient, MK Dons, Brighton, Charlton Athletic before he signed a two year contract with Bradford City in July 2017 where he currently commands a regular first team position.

Welsh-based Alec Mudimu (22), is a midfielder maestro, currently playing for Cefn Druids in the Welsh top flight league, and has been in fantastic form for Druids scoring six goals in 23 appearance this season, helping Druids to qualify for UEFA Europa League next season.

Danish-based Silas Songani (28), is a former Harare City talisman currently with Sønderjyske.

Songani made a blistering start in the Danish top flight league with Sønderjyske enjoying his first two seasons before spending the whole 2016/17 season sidelined after falling out of favour with the club's new coach, but Songani is starting to revatilise his football career at Sønderjyske and is slowly regaining the coach's confidence.
