Esrom Nyandoro (born February 06, 1980 in Bulawayo) is a Zimbabwean football (soccer) midfielder. In his native Zimbabwe, Nyandoro is nicknamed "Yellowman" due to his light skin complexion.

Club career

Nyandoro grew up In Zimbabwe's second largest city, Bulawayo, and learnt at Mzilikazi High School. He was identified by soccer scouts whilst playing in the Peter Ndlovu invitational under 19 tournament, for Zimbabwe Saints Juniors, which was used to identify and promote talent. As a result of this he signed with AmaZulu, rising through the reserve ranks to being a member of the league championship winning squad.

Nyandoro was then signed by the South African club Mamelodi Sundowns in 2004. He was named the Premier Soccer League's rookie of the year for 2004/05 and the Sundowns' footballer of the year for 2005/06 after helping them to the championship title.

In the summer of 2006, Nyandoro joined up with English Premier League club Sheffield United for a trial. This was on the recommendation of Peter Ndlovu who had played for the club. The trial did not go well and Nyandoro did not impress Sheffield United boss, Neil Warnock.

International career

Nyandoro was a member of the Zimbabwean 2004 African Nations Cup team, who finished bottom of their group in the first round of competition, thus failing to secure qualification for the quarter-finals. He scored a superb goal that was voted as the best goal of the tournament. He also participated at the 2006 African Nations Cup. Nyandoro is now touted to take over the captaincy of the Zimbabwe national team from incumbent Benjani Mwaruwari of Manchester City.
