Tanzanian Giants Simba SC has officially announced the departure of Ghanaian attacker Augustine Okrah following the end of the 2022/23 league season.
The player transferred to the club last year on a two-year deal after shining in the Ghana Premier League with Bechem United.
An official statement issued by the club said The management of the club officially announces the departure of our attacking midfielder Augustine Okrah after the end of the 2022/23 season.
Ghanaian Okrah has finished his contract with the club and the player will not be extended a new contract.
Okrah joined us at the beginning of this season from Bechem United in his home country of Ghana where he has shown great potential in all the matches he has played.
In the one season, he served in our team, Okrah made a big contribution, playing 17 matches and scoring four goals, and helping to get another one.
Okrah’s departure is a sign of the official start of the neglect of the improvements of our squad towards the next season of competition.
The leadership of the club is determined to make major improvements in the squad starting from the technical bench area by adding more professionals as well as players with great status and quality to serve Simba.
Before joining Simba SC, the player had 17 goals and three assists for Bechem United.
During a pre-season friendly against Egyptian side Ismaily SC, the 29-year-old player scored his first goal for Simba SC.
He did, however, struggle for playing time throughout the season, appearing in just three CAF Champions League games for Simba.
Simba finished second in the domestic league this season with 67 points, trailing Young Africans, who won the league with 74 points.
