Days of glory beckon for Midlands

Days of glory are beckoning for the Midlands Pool honours contest.

This after the provincial executive secured sponsorship for several tournaments lined up for the coming season, which kicks-off next week.

The province faired badly in the sport, in what is attributable to lack of sponsorship, making the latest turn of events a bit refreshing.

Provincial chair, Molest Gaka, gave confirmation.

“We have four sponsors right now who have said they will sponsor various tournaments for us this year and it is a great step towards the development of the game,” he said.

He added that in the last tournament won by Mkoba-based outfit – Mboma, Petroleum firm Redan had succeeded to sponsor all the 32 teams that contested.

“2012 has begun on a high note in the province as far as pool is concerned. In the very first month, we have succeeded to host a tournament and that is a big achievement.”

Though the league is yet to get a sound sponsor, hopes are high that companies and mines being courted will unveil favourable packages.
