Players of Madombidzha Try Again and Madombidzha Arsenal recently received their rewards for hard work during the past season.
Their awards ceremony was held at PNS lodge a fortnight ago. Try Again demonstrated the strength of their poison this year when they finished their league programme in the first position. They were also promoted to the Safa Vhembe MMK league. Arsenal finished in the fifth position.
The members of Try Again who received awards were Rotshidzwa Phathela (most improved player), Ndamulelo Phathela (best coach), Mulalo Manenzhe (chairman’s award), Thato Senatla (top goal scorer and players’ player of the season), Funzani Tshianeo (player of the season) and Munenyiwa Mutshinya (most disciplined player).
The Arsenal awards went to Lucky Buasi (top goal scorer and players’ player of the season), Mashudu Ramavhoya (chairman’s award), Eric Sefularo (player of the season), Naledzani Mukondeleli (young player of the season), and Talifhani Mbelengwa (most disciplined player).
The guest speaker, Mr Kaizer Marindi, managing director of Marindi Funerals, said soccer success did not necessarily start on the field. "Success goes hand in hand with planning. You must set achievable goals for yourselves and you will then reap success.”
The chairperson of Madombidzha Try Again, Mr Chester Malotsha, said the awards were meant to motivate players to work hard. "They deserve to be honoured in public, because what they have done makes everyone of us proud."
