Livewire ZPC Munyati

ZPC Munyati have set the early pace in the ZIFA Central Region Division 1 league, after 10 rounds of matches into the 2015 season.

The power men, who remain the only side yet to taste defeat thus far, recently maintained their dominion at the summit, after they dismissed last season’s runners up, MSU 1-0 over the weekend.

The result saw the Ritherford Matondo-led charges amass 24 points and open a four-point gap ahead of former PSL side, Chrome Stars.

Now with ample breathing space at the summit of the standings, the power men believe they can go all the way to clinch promotion into top flight football next year. The only challengers who could stage an upset for them, Shabanie Mine, do not seem to have the stamina for that great disturbance.

“We believe that we have the stamina to go all the way and claim championship this season and so this is the work we have to do now.

Hard work and teamwork has lately been giving us the results we desire and so we are optimistic of achieving all our targets,” said Matondo.

ZPC Munyati’s promotion into the PSL if achieved will end the perennial drought for topflight football action in Kwekwe where teams like Chrome Stars and Lancashire Steel used to be the darling of many in their hey days.

While Chrome have failed to make a comeback for a long time, Lancashire Steel have literally folded after a 14-year romance in the league whose lowest point was their relegation in 2008. However the Chimbi-chimbi boys had already produced a handful of the country's finest footballers.

Zimbabwe internationals Paul Gundani, Luke Petros and Petros Sibanda together with local players such as Brighton Tuwaya, Washington Arubi, Sam Mutenheri, Dick Moyana, Wellington Sibanda, Isaac Nyamvura, Costa Maradzike, Highway F.Cs Romeo Kabesha, George Magariro and Tafadzwa Dube, had the pride of wearing the maroon and white colors of the Chimbi Chimbi boys.
