Baobab Stadium gets nod

HARARE - Premiership new boys Ngezi Platinum Stars have been given the green light to host CAPS United on Sunday afternoon at their newly-constructed Baobab Stadium in Ngezi from the Premier Soccer League (PSL).

The league’s chief executive, Kennedy Ndebele, confirmed the development in a letter sent to the clubs yesterday.

The platinum miners’ clash against CAPS United was initially set for tomorrow and there had been uncertainties as to where the match was going to be played.

It is, however, the completion of the 10 000-seater stadium that is likely to bring joy to multitudes of the team’s fans in the community.

“This serves to advise that the Ngezi Platinum match against CAPS United shall be played on Sunday April 10, 2016 at Baobab Stadium in Ngezi,” reads the letter.

The platinum miners, whose team was formed in 2004, won promotion for a maiden dance in the top flight league after running away with the 2015 Zifa Northern Region Division One League title.

Ngezi Platinum started their campaign with a comprehensive 0-3 win against Mutare City last week and their credentials will be put to test when they face high-riding CAPS United on Sunday.

Their coach, Clifton Kadurira, a former Black Mambas and Darryn T player, vowed to cope with the pressures of top flight football and is confident his side will do their Ngezi community proud.

Ngezi have been relatively busy on the transfer market after unveiling former CAPS United striker Washington Pakamisa, Kumbirai Kapikunyu, Liberty Chakoroma, Tichaona Mabvura, Zivanai Mhanda and Knowledge Machona as their new signings.

They also boast of experienced players in their ranks like Daniel Kamunhenga, Edgar Tapera formerly with Harare City, Innocent Sakosi, Terrence Dzukamanja and Evans Katema.
