Beitbridge based Dulibadzimu United are not putting the off-season to waste as they are preparing to unleash a number of promising youngsters next season.
While some of the teams are taking a rest after the conclusion of the Central Region Soccer League 2021/2022 season last month, Dulibadzimu United are using the period to mould a team that will challenge for the title next season.
Top among the youngsters to look forward to next season is 17 year old national U17 utility player Messi Gushero who is comfortable at both wingback and wing attack.
Dulibadzimu United coach Stanley ‘Stano’ Ncube said they want to bring the title back to Beitbridge and believes the past season, gave them insight into the areas they need to polish up.
“Our target for next season is very clear, we want to go for the league title. So we are not resting, we are putting a lot of focus on the players from our developmental side. We are going to blend them with the experienced players who did duty for us last season,” Ncube said.
“Some of these players we gave them cameo appearances with the senior team the past season and I believe that they are now mature enough to last the mile next season and bring us the desired results. Besides Messi Gushero, we have other exciting players like Kelvin Kanganga, 16 year old Mayibongwe Sibanda and Thabo Mpande.
Ncube said they are going to release some of their senior players who have attracted interest from Premier Soccer League clubs.
“Some of the clubs that have been promoted into the Premier Soccer League have shown interest in our captain Leeroy Rwokuda and Benedict Sithole. Also Brooklyn Makawa and Joseph Tito are being sought after by other clubs. So we are not going to stand in their way, we are going to allow they to go. We appreciate the service they gave to the club.”
