GWERU-City of progress based outfit, Sheasham FC aka Construction Boys are optimistic of quick return to the top flight league, but their gaffer believes it’s a stroll in the park as they need to work extra hard to achieve that.

Speaking during the official unveiling of their new home and away kit at Bata Club last week, Sheasham gaffer, Lizwe Sweswe said it was not going to be easy to return to top flight football hence they need to pull all strings to achieve their main objective.

The Construction Boys were relegated into the unfashionable world of Ruvimbo Funeral Central Region Soccer League (CRSL)Division 1 football last year from the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League after dancing with the best in the country for just one year.

“We will play and treat every game with respect because all the teams in the CRSL D1 are doing well and are playing for promotion. So, we are very cautious on every game. So there no easy team or small team.

“We will play to win every match.

“Pressure is always there but there is need to deal with the pressure, yes as the coach you can deal with it but you also look at the players. Our match against Dulibadzimu FC will act as a big test of ability to last all the way.

“The establishment of our academy was to come up with an identity because an identity is very important to all teams to help you plan properly.

“The biggest thing for our players is about vision, so the players must know what they want. So, on the developmental side, the National Association of School Heads ( NASH) and National Association of Primary School Heads(NAPH) games will help us in identifying key players.

“We have good players aged between 15-18 years, they can easily learn and adjust even in terms of discipline and diet. We also work with the parents in nurturing the young players because it’s not only based on the team,” Sweswe said.

ZIFA CRSL, acting Chairman, DR Thomas Marambanyika said the most important thing highlighted by Sheasham was the development side which calls for the registration of the young players.

“I think the most important thing I picked from the presenters particularly the coach is the developmental side of Sheasham. It’s very exciting as it brings hope of a better football in future both to the region and nation at large.

“I think this shows a massive investment in the future of the most beautiful game, now the push for the registration of you young players so that as they develop and grow, we can sell them to the developed world and have returns at any time to invest back into the system,” he added.

Sheasham chairperson, Chrispen Ngwenya said the coming together of all stakeholders to support Sheasham’s vision was important as it belongs  to the community.

‘We are ready as a club to work together with you this season, much appreciation goes to all the sponsors who have decided to come on board and walk with us. We believe we are going to return back to the PSL but we know it won’t be an easy journey but together we can make it.

“We believe we have a best set of players through our coach Lizwe Sweswe as you can see in the room we have a youthful squad of players.

“Moreso, we believe that as we have started our development side its quite significant in boosting the team as we know their raw talent out there.

“To our players we believe in discipline and commitment and that will prevail in taking the team to a better level in terms of football” Ngwenya added.
