BancABC kicks off as Shabanie, Gunners clash


Premier League football returns to the city of Gweru on Saturday afternoon when Gunners and Shabanie Mine converge at Ascot Stadium to kick-start this year’s quarter-final matches of the BancABC Sup8r tournament.

The Midlands province, which has been starved of top-flight football for almost four years now, will be treated to another blockbuster match on Saturday when Caps United and Highlanders clash in Kwekwe at Baghdad Stadium in another quarter-final match.

The last time the people of Gweru witnessed top-flight league football was in 2008 when Chapungu was the face of the city in the Premier league but unfortunately for the airmen, they could not last the distance and were relegated.

However, with the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League programme suspended this weekend, the spotlight will once again fall back to the “City of Progress” when Chando Kupisa engage the asbestos miners.

The two teams might be struggling in the league, but today’s game is a different proposition altogether and promises to be a cracker of a match.

Gunners welcome captain David Sengu back into the team after he was reported to be Awol early this month.

Sengu, alongside Under-23 goalkeeper George Chigova and skilful midfielder Nathan Ziwini were reported to have skipped the border into South Africa without permission from the Gunners bosses.
