Date of birth
Exciting young forward Offrande Zanzala joined The Bluebirds during the summer of 2021 after turning down a deal at local rivals, Carlisle United.
The powerful and athletic front man had impressed fans at Brunton Park during the second half of last term when he scored five goals in 22 appearances.
A hard-working and combative performer, Zanzala was on the books of Derby County from the age of 12 having come across to England from the Democratic Republic of Congo.
He progressed through to The Rams’ Under-21 side and also gained senior experience with loan spells at Stevenage, Chester and Accrington Stanley before joining the latter permanently in 2018.
Zanzala has also spent time in the colours of Crewe Alexandra before linking-up with Carlisle but Mark Cooper was keen to bring him to Holker Street and moved quickly to secure his signature.
