Spread the love

Commando Bullets might have become a victim of their own success last season as they are set to lose some of their most outstanding players to clubs in the Premier Soccer League.

Commando Bullets finished fifth in the Northern Region Soccer League after surprising all and sundry to be among the best performing teams despite having been rank outsiders at the start of the season and with a bit of luck could have finished in a better position.

Now with a few weeks before the beginning of a new season, Commando Bullets are being forced to turn back into their rank and file for reserves as their top players from last season have attracted interest from sister club Black Rhinos who have also seen some of their star players moving to more financially attractive clubs in the Premier Soccer League.

The core of the team last season, star midfielder Brian Mukucha is set to join Black Rhinos along with captain Lloyd Nyamadzawo, Clarence Zimbawo, Irvine Njelele, Brian Makoni, Ibrahim Kanjere and Pride ‘Neymar’ Mukombwe.

Commando Bullets coach Nqobile Mafu is however putting a brave face and is optimistic that that he will be able to build another team that is going to be competitive this season.

“In as much as we might be losing these players, I’m happy that the fruits of our hard work last season are being noticed. I’ve no doubt that these players are going to add value to Black Rhinos if they are all registered,” Mafu said.

“Of course some might come back after Black Rhinos finalise their squad next week but all the same, we are also having trials here so that we have an equally strong side this season. I’m grateful to the executive and the leadership of Commando Bullets for their support which made us do well last season and have already put in the foundation for us to succeed this year.”

“We are under a bit of pressure this season because of the position that we accomplished last season. It gives us something to work for this season because we need to do better than what we did last year.”

Mafu was also full of praise for the Northern Region Soccer League executive for organizing a pre season refresher course for the coaches and their assistants which was facilitated by renowned coaching instructor Nelson Matongorere.

“I’m really grateful to have been part of the course, it was really insightful. I learnt a lot and also my colleagues benefited a lot. We intent to implement what we learnt during this forthcoming season.”

“I would like to thank the Northern Region Soccer League executive and the facilitators led by Nelson Matongorere for a coming up with such a wonderful workshop. It was an eye opener to many coaches.”
