Head Coach Mike Noonan on Chifamba…
“Elton is someone who we’ve valued for a very, very long time in the recruiting process. You have to give Elton a lot of credit because he wanted to be a Tiger… He’s a young man who is in the mold of what we want in a midfielder in terms of being a two-way player. He likes to defend but is also very good with the ball. I think he’s someone who can come in and contribute right away.”
