Silver Strikers senior players have asked their management to give them  the unsettled balance, over signing-on fees since last season if not they will  take unspecified action against the club.

The players  confronted the club’s executive committee on Friday at Silver Stadium to voice out their frustrations.

Speaking in  interview yesterday, some Silver senior players confirmed that they were increasingly becoming frustrated by the club’s reluctance to settle the arrears.

“We have made it clear that we need our money because some of us earn a living from football,” said one of the players.

Silver Acting General Secretary, Thabo Chakaka- Nyirenda, said the players got an assurance that they will be paid their dues.

“First and foremost, the matter is very minor arising from very slight misunderstandings. The matter has been sorted out. Blowing this out is tantamount to attempting to create a mountain out of a molehill. We just had a one-to-one meeting with each player to clarify certain contractual provisions,” Chakaka-Nyirenda explained.

“I guess because the meeting took place during training, people mistook it for a boycott of training. The meeting is one of the routine ones. We will have many of them in future to appreciate the problems that players face.”

The information on ground shows the club owes the players an estimated K10 million.
