THOUGH his PSL stay didn’t last as long as it should have because of injury but in the games that he played for Cape Town Spurs his qualities were beyond any doubt.
He had one hell of a deceiving body swerve that left numerous defenders stranded or crashing against advertising boards.
Though he could play upfront he was equally at home attacking from the wings – positions that he also played back home in Zimbabwe where he turned out for Black Rhinos and Dynamos.
His only downfall was his temper or rather his struggle to control it when on the field.
Gorowa arrived at Cape Town Spurs just before the 1997-98 season and finished as the club’s top scorer that campaign with 11 goals in 25 starts.
What made him immediately win the hearts of Spurs followers was that he introduced himself with a memorable brace against Kaizer Chiefs in August, 1997 in a famous 3-1 win for The Eagles.
Disaster struck the next season with an injury picked up against Vaal Professionals, limiting him to a mere five games and just two goals. It would eventually go on to mark the premature end of a playing career that would have definitely delivered more. He was forced to stop playing aged just 27.
When Spurs and Seven Stars merged in 1999 he was then drafted into Ajax Cape Town’s development structures, working his way up the ladder to become an assistant coach at the club before leaving in 2007 to be head coach at Moroka Swallows. He also later held fort at Mamelodi Sundowns.
Gorowa is currently helping Swallows with their pre-season preparations after he stopped working with the Zim national team after not been paid . – Caps United Bulletin
