Castle Lager Premier Soccer League debutants Green Fuel are in a massive grassroots development as they seek to be a force to reckon with in the future.

Green Fuel, the first team from Chipinge to play in the country’s top flight league are not leaving anything to chance as they seek to achieve their goal of being one of the best teams in Zimbabwe and beyond.

Green Fuel chairman Fredson Moyo who is one of the emerging breed of astute administrators said they have a long term plan to make the club one of the best in the country whose success and influence will also result in the upliftment of the surrounding communities.

“We are going to have the Billy Rautenbach Cup which is going to see youth teams from the surrounding areas participate. From this we will be able to pick out the best players and draft them into our developmental structures,” Moyo said.

“This Billy Rautenbach Cup is going to be a yearly event and we are going to work with local schools and communities so that we broaden our catchment area. In future we would want to have players from our developmental structures dominating the team, the way you have seen Barcelona do their business.”

“Having some of our best talents coming in from our communities will also help us in building a strong support base. Just like you see in Europe that teams there have their support base firmly rooted in communities. We are hoping that soon we will be playing our home matches here at our Green Fuel Arena and we want to create an intimidating atmosphere such that it would be hard for teams to come out with points here.”

With the club floating just above the relegation zone which makes their premier league status precarious, Moyo is unfazed as he is confident that they will survive relegation and see through their plans.

“Our performance of late have been pleasing. Yes we beat Dynamos but it was a culmination of efforts made in the previous matches. We lost to CAPS United but the performance was really good and with a bit of precision, we could have wrapped up the match in the first half.”

“We have so much confidence in our coach Rodwell Dhlakama and his technical bench that they are going to see us remain in the premier league next season. The players have also been working their socks off so that we move away from the relegation zone. We have just reached the halfway mark of the season and we are very much confident that we will pick more points in the second half of the season.”

Green Fuel have been slowly finding their feet away from the relegation zone since the coming in of Dhlakama who seems to have instilled as sense of optimism among the players. The Chisumbanje based team will this Sunday clash aianst Triangle in a derby at Gibbo stadium. Green Fuel go into the match match against Triangle buoyed by their victory against Dynamos last weekend. Interestingly Green Fuel have been using Triangle’s Gibbo stadium as their home ground as their as their Green Fuel Arena is undergoing some touch ups.
