Vote for your top 10 PSL play­ers of the last 25yrs

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Sikhum­buzo Moyo

THE Premier Soc­cer League has called on mem­bers of the pub­lic to vote for their Top 10 play­ers who il­lu­mi­nated the foot­ball scene since the birth of the league 25 years ago.

In a post on their of­fi­cial Face­book site, the League said nom­i­na­tions will re­main open and close on Oc­to­ber 18 af­ter which an of­fi­cial Top 50 list of play­ers who daz­zled the lo­cal foot­ball scene will be re­leased.

It did how­ever not spec­ify when the fi­nal list will be made pub­lic but in­di­ca­tions are that it will be un­veiled when the League holds its 25 years cel­e­bra­tions later this year.

“Twenty-five years ago, foot­ball clubs led by Mor­ri­son Sife­lani, Chris Sibanda, Vic­tor Zvobgo, Roger Muhlwa and oth­ers gath­ered in Harare to form the Na­tional Premier Soc­cer League. The League has grown and de­vel­oped over the years with over 70 clubs hav­ing par­tic­i­pated in the PSL. The League has pro­duced many great foot­ballers who daz­zled the soc­cer sta­dia dot­ted around the coun­try. We in­vite you to nom­i­nate your Top Ten (10) play­ers for the short­list of 50 Best Play­ers who played in the Premier Soc­cer League between 1993-2017. Nom­i­na­tions close on 18th Oc­to­ber, 2017,” reads a state­ment on the PSL Face­book site.

The post has ex­cited some in­ter­est­ing de­bate on var­i­ous so­cial me­dia sites by fans and it all points to a very tax­ing ad­ju­di­ca­tion ex­er­cise for the league to zero down to the fi­nal 50 but its cer­tain that a num­ber will come from the 1993 to 2007 era.

Some of the play­ers will surely come from the now de­funct sides like AmaZulu, Black­pool, Njube Sun­downs, Ea­gles, Zim­babwe Saints, Black Aces, Daryn T, Masvingo United to name but just a few.
