Madombidzha Try Again were crowned the new champions of the Themeli Soccer tournament at Madombidzha on Saturday.
Try Again went home with the prize money of R1 500, a floating trophy and gold medals. The runners-up, Madombidzha Arsenal, collected R1 000 and silver medals.
According to the organiser, Mr Maanda Themeli, the players had trained hard to excel in their activities. He praised the committee, who managed the sport well, and encouraged community members to keep it up to produce soccer stars.
He thanked the sponsors for developing soccer in the rural areas and said it was very wise for the owner to plough back what he received from the community. He said it was brutal for businesspeople to enrich themselves at the expense of the people and do nothing in return towards the development of the area.
The former Black Leopards player, Mr Tshisamphiri Madima, appealed to businesspeople to get involved in promoting local activities. He emphasised during the ceremony the importance of education and said that sports people must not neglect their studies.
