Please Sinky do not make mistake of signing reject players and pay them fat salaries like you did in the likes of Collins Mbesuma and Surprise Moriri and others at the end they did not help the team after all. Keep your soldiers who fought through thick and thin and let them enjoy the top flights of the PSL with the technical team who worked hard to make sure that you get promotion again

To Owners of the Highlands Park and Technical Team, I believe you all learnt the lesson after you get relagated in the last of last season. Now, its a wake up plea that, do not look down players who fought high and low for this team. Do not sign rejects players from fellow PSL teams. These players who contributed to the team's great run for 2017/18 season MUST be given chance to shine in the PSL.
