Early life[edit]

Makeche was born in Lusaka before emigrating to Australia. He became an Australian citizen in August 2012.[1][2]

Club career[edit]

Shortly after arriving in Western Australia, Makeche joined State league side Stirling Lions where he played three seasons. A 2011 move to Inglewood United brought Makeche the regular first team football he sought, while his knack for finding the back of the net lead to a youth team deal with Perth Glory.

Perth Glory[edit]

In 2011, he signed a youth contract with A-League club Perth Glory. He made his professional debut in the 2011–12 A-League season on 18 March 2012 in a round 26 clash against Gold Coast United at the Skilled Park.[3]

On 1 May 2012, it was announced he had signed a two-year senior contract with Perth Glory.[4]

FELDA United[edit]

On 28 February 2014, after reaching a mutual agreement with Perth Glory, Makeche signed with Malaysian club FELDA United.[5]


Makeche was revealed as the newest signing by Malaysian league side CF Sarawak in mid-December 2015 for 2016 Malaysia Super League.[6]
