Eastern Region Division One debutants seems to have struck the right code by changing their technical setup as the new duo of Takura Shariwa and George Magariro continue working magic with the Kingdom Boys.
The team has now registered a 3 match unbeaten run; registering two wins and a draw to bring the tally to seven points out of a possible nine.
After a poor spate of results under the guidance of overrated veteran gaffer, Ezekiel Mutoda, who was at the helm of the ambitious D1 new boys since Match day 1, Zhalala Zhululu as the side is affectionately known, hired Shariwa to take over the reins.
The flamboyant side also brought in former Lancashire Steel, Masvingo United and Dynamos hard tackling defender George ‘Mavhariro’ Magariro to double as the assistant coach and fitness trainer.
In the three games which the duo have stirred the ship, the team has played away to Grayham FC and drew 1-1 before beating Surrey 1-0 at home and over the weekend won 2-0 away to Chiredzi Stars at Chishamiso stadium.
Efforts to get a comment from Shariwa over his journey so far with the club were futile as he was said to be busy with some team business by the time of publishing.
Meanwhile, the gods seem to have stopped smiling for a second at the province’s most successful team, Masvingo United popularly known as Una Una who haven’t been receiving quality results of late.
Masvingo stand better chance than Wangu Mazodze on the log table as they seat on fourth position while the new boys are on ninth position.
However, they have collected one point in the last two games salvaging a point at home against Renco Mine after a one all stalemate then a ‘controversial’ loss away to Mutare City over the weekend.
The team has also been affected by financial woes which have also caused the club to part ways with one of its assistant coaches’ Reason Mugore.
Recently the team chairperson and former Masvingo Mayor Hubert Fidze resigned from his post citing personal reasons although some sources allege that he was growing impatient by having the burden to beg for funds since the team is regarded as a community team.
If they are to keep their PSL promotion hopes alive, the club might need to up their game and improve player welfare which might cause all sorts of problems in their quest to retain premiership status.
