    Masvingo Pirates honour outstanding performers


    MASVINGO-Masvingo Pirates formerly known as Mucheke Pirates held their maiden end of season merit awards where players who excelled during the year received prizes at a colourful ceremony at Lakeview Lodge in Masvingo Rural on Friday evening last week.
    The one year old Club's secretary general Owen Mafa said the just ended season was fairly good as it was their first time to play in Division One where they finished a respectable 4th position.
     "Although we faced some problems the season was fairly good to us. We registered our players late and some players deserted us in the middle of the season and that affected our rhythm of play as we had to build a new team with new combinations because  we had to register 10 new players.
    "I would like to pay tribute to our sponsors for the support and the supporters who have been behind the team through and through," said Mafa.
    Tedious Machawira who was the guest of honour presented the awards with the assistance of prominent Masvingo lawyer Collen Maboke.
    Alvin Gerald Bhelo a no-nonsense defender was named soccer star of the year, Takunda Mazhambe who plays as a linkman was selected as the most consistent player, Taurai Madzivire the team's goalkeeper was voted the most improved player, Tubhoyi Sabastian a midfielder was the most disciplined player and Wellington Tutu who netted eight goals during the season received the golden boot for his efforts.
    Head coach Ezekiel Mutoda who took over the team in the middle of the season from Johannes Nhumwa promised Premier League action for Masvingo in 2019.
    "We will do our best to get promotion into the Premiership come end of season next year, we can't afford not to have a team in the top flight league anymore," said Mutoda.sports news
