Club career edit

Ndoro started his career with Chicken Inn of Zimbabwe in 2011.[1] Two years later, Ndoro completed a move to South African club Black Aces but was immediately returned to Chicken Inn on loan for the rest of the 2013 season.[2] In 2014, he officially joined the Black Aces squad and subsequently made 41 appearances and scored 14 goals over two seasons before departing in 2015 to join Orlando Pirates.[3]

In the 2017–18 season he appeared for three clubs - Orlando Pirates, Al Faisaly, and Ajax Cape Town, in breach of FIFA regulations. As a result, Ajax Cape Town had to forfeit the three league games he had appeared in for them, resulting in their relegation from the South African Premier League.[4]

On 26 September, Ndoro signed for Highlands Park.[5]

On 27 December 2019, Al-Orouba from Oman announced that they had signed Ndoro.[6] Ndoro played for the club less than a season in 2020 before the club went bankrupt and closed.[7] Following this sting, Ndoro became ill and was close to a mental breakdown. But in August 2022, he revealed, that he was ready to continue his career.[7]
