ZPCS to build one team

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Love­more Zi­gara in Gweru

THE Zim­babwe Pris­ons and Cor­rec­tional Ser­vices (ZPCS) has an­nounced plans to nur­ture one foot­ball club un­der its stable where re­sources will be chan­nelled for it to play in the Premier­ship in the 2018 sea­son.

Other clubs bankrolled by ZPCS will act as tal­ent breed­ing cen­tres for the one that would have been pro­moted into the PSL.

ZPCS has three clubs play­ing in the dif­fer­ent First Divi­sion Leagues with Ntabazin­duna com­pet­ing in the Zifa South­ern Re­gion while for­mer Premier­ship teams Whawha and Flame Lily are in the Cen­tral Soc­cer League and the North­ern Re­gion re­spec­tively.

Whawha and Flame Lily were part of the PSL dur­ing the 2015 sea­son but were rel­e­gated af­ter only a sea­son’s flir­ta­tion with the topflight league.

ZPCS Com­mis­sioner-Gen­eral Rtd Ma­jor Gen­eral Paradzai Zi­mondi said they have learnt from their mis­takes and were in the process of iden­ti­fy­ing a club which they would chan­nel re­sources to for a quick re­turn to the topflight league.

“We have learnt from our mis­takes af­ter two of our clubs were rel­e­gated in the premier league. Now we are look­ing at build­ing one team for the pris­ons and cor­rec­tional ser­vice and we want to main­tain it in the premier league,” Zi­mondi said. — @lavuzi­gara1
