The Zimbabwean did score six top flight goals for Cosmos the following season a feat he matched in the 2019/20 campaign with Polokwane City.

Gyimah, now 30, has played for SuperSport United, Cape Town City, Orlando Pirates, Bidvest Wits and Black Leopards, so has plenty of knowledge of the lay of the land in the Premiership.
