Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Front Page - De­scent Dube Sports Re­porter

A WELL-WISHER has come to Ajax Hot­spurs Foot­ball Club’s res­cue and paid $1 480 to Zifa Bu­l­awayo Province for the Mpopoma based side’s out­stand­ing dues af­ter the Divi­sion Two cham­pi­ons got pro­moted to the South­ern Re­gion First Divi­sion.

Ajax stormed back to the South­ern Re­gion Divi­sion One fol­low­ing a five-year ab­sence, in an un­beaten record of 20 wins and 10 draws.

Club di­rec­tor Sipham­ban­iso Dube said the club is geared for next sea­son as they seek to re­turn the good ges­ture shown by the well wisher by avoid­ing rel­e­ga­tion.

“We’re grate­ful to those who have come to res­cue us by pro­vid­ing us with mone­tary and all dif­fer­ent forms of sup­port. An­other spon­sor is promis­ing to as­sist with ref­er­ees’ fees for the whole year as a re­sult the club is mo­ti­vated and can’t wait to get the ball rolling,” said Dube.

“We are call­ing for more part­ners to come for­ward and help build the brand Ajax Hot­spurs in our en­deav­our to pro­mote foot­ball de­vel­op­ment in Bu­l­awayo and Zim­babwe. We are des­per­ately in need of help with af­fil­i­a­tion fees which can be payable di­rect to Zifa South­ern Re­gion Soccer League,” Dube said.

Dube said Ajax is be­ing owed close to $12 000 in de­vel­op­men­tal fees by big clubs, which if paid in full, all their prob­lems will be solved.

Ajax have pro­duced top tal­ent such as Divine Lunga, who now plays for South African Pre­mier­ship side La­montville Golden Ar­rows, 2016 Soccer Star of the Year fi­nal­ist with High­landers, de­fender, Peter Muduhwa, Den­zel Khu­malo, Mbon­geni Ndlovu and Chrispen Machisi. - @De­coDe­cent2
