GWERU- Gweru based Central Region Soccer League outfit, Sheasham FC who were relegated from the PSL last season have expressed optimism to quickly return to the top flight league come 2025.
Club coach, Lizwe Sweswe said his squad was working towards rebuilding the team in preparation for quick return to the Castle Lager PSL as Division One football is not where they belong.
Upon the club’s relegation Sweswe pledged to stay put saying Sheasham was a club with a vision and a bright future.
“Yes, as we parted ways with a number of players, you know we were relegated from the Premiere Soccer League, so some of the players decided to move and search for other clubs and we allowed them to do so.
“As a club we are waiting to introduce the new players as we are now in the Division 1, as we infuse the new blood we are also targeting the young talent, tap into the young talent whom we also believe need platforms to showcase their abilities.
“We are very optimstic that we will return to the PSL so, I guess we need to put our house in order. Sheasham is a club with a vision and it is that vision we ought to achieve as a club as we owe the community good football,” he added.
Sweswe also said they have new players who are coming and there are plans to introduce an academy to groom their own players than to rely on buying from other clubs every time.
Sheasham FC chief executive officer, Wonder Chaka said plans were in place to work hand in hand with the media to grow the Sheasham brand.
“We are hoping for the best, and this season we are moving a step forward in working with the local media, as we drive and grow Sheasham,” Chaka added.
Players like Ray Lunga and Rahman Kutsanzira from Highlanders have joined the Construction Boys to bolster the club’s squad ahead of the 2024 Ruvimbo Funeral CRSL season.
Meanwhile, Sheasham has made some boardroom changes where, Crispen Ngwenya assumes the chairperson’s position replacing Reginald Chidawanyika and is being deputised by Tawedzerwa Mudzvoka.
Pithias Shoko was appointed as the new secretary general after Violet Jubane resigned. All other members of the executive were retained with club chief executive officer while Wonder Chaka was appointed as the director of football development.
