New colours for Gunemba, Dabinyaba

Gunemba and Dabinyaba joined Hekari United during the third transfer window after they were terminated from the defending champion Lae City FC.

Acting NSL Manager, Dimirit Mileng, said both players could not be fielded last Saturday when the competition resumed as the technical issues concerning their transfer from their former club were being addressed by the technical committee of Kumul Petroleum National Soccer League.

Dreams come true for Dabinyaba

After opening their campaign with three losses, Penang will hope the mercurial Dabinyaba can turn their fortunes in their clash with Sarawak this weekend.

Dabinyaba picked up an injury in the clubs final pre-season match and consequently missed the first three matches of the new season.

The 24-year-old is set to become the first Papua New Guinean to play at the professional level since Manis Lamond graced the Australian National Soccer League in the 1980s and 1990s.
