Mungadze misses out on $250 bonus

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Ricky Zililo Se­nior Sports Reporter

DE­SPITE Black Boots’ Tashinga Mungadze fail­ing to reach the 22-goal mark that would have en­abled him to pocket $250 bonus for be­ing the South­ern Re­gion Soc­cer League’s top goal scorer, Nokel Se­cu­rity will hand­somely re­ward the striker for his 15 goals.

Half way into the 2016 sea­son, Nokel Se­cu­rity who are the spon­sors of the re­gion’s top goal scorer of the month ac­co­lade pledged to add $250 on top of the $150 they are go­ing to give the sea­son’s top marks­man in the event that he scored at least 22 goals.

The in­cen­tive was meant to mo­ti­vate strik­ers who seemed shy in front of goal.

Ken­neth Mhlophe, Nokel Se­cu­rity di­rec­tor, said: “Maybe the mid-sea­son an­nounce­ment which was meant to mo­ti­vate strik­ers put too much pres­sure on the play­ers and that is why we had the best striker get­ting 15 goals. How­ever, I’ve de­cided to give Mungadze half of the bonus we had pledged as a com­pany for his ef­forts be­cause at least 15 goals is bet­ter than last year’s 10 which the 2015 top scorer had,” said Mhlophe.

Bekithemba Ny­oni on Tech­no­sphere and Bantu Rovers’ Le­nience “Qobho” Mpofu shared last sea­son’s top goal scorer award with 10 goals apiece. — @ZililoR
