This year’s soccer season one of the best
EDITOR — As this year’s edition of the Premier Soccer League nears its end, it is only fair to acknowledge those who were behind the scenes for such an exciting season, which showed a brand of competitiveness which was elusive over the years.
By any measure this season was better than the previous ones which was dominated by DeMbare even when they lost key players every season.
This year teams like Ngezi Platinum, Bulawayo City and Harare City proved to be tricky customers for the big teams in the league, a healthy intervention.
This reminds us of the good old days when we had teams like Lancashire Steel, Railstars, Masvingo United and Shabanie Mine which used to humble big teams time and again.
I still remember in the mid-2000s when Charles Mhlauri’s Caps United was silenced by a minnow team called Kwekwe Cables at the National Sports Stadium.
Those were the golden days of local soccer and I feel we are about to witness their revival.
At that time locally based players could easily play in the national team, now we have the likes of Hardlife Zvirekwi commanding a place in the Warriors.
Kudos to the sponsors, administration and coaches who made this season a marvel to watch. Gerald Khumalo.
