Bosso players back at training

-

HIGHLANDERS Football Club players yesterday returned to training after a boycott on Wednesday in protest over unpaid winning bonuses for three matches.

REPORT BY FORTUNE MBELE SPORTS REPORTER

The players trained at Hillside Dams. A senior player who spoke to NewsDay Sport yesterday said they had agreed to go back to training after they were promised that they would receive their dues next Monday.

The players are reportedly owed bonuses for the 1-0 win over Shabanie Mine at Barbourfields Stadium on September 23, the 1-0 win over Hwange at the Colliery and the recent 1-0 victory against Black Mambas at Barbourfields Stadium.

The players had a brief stopover at the club offices yesterday before they left for Hillside Dams.

“We are coming from training right now. We were told at the club offices today (yesterday) that we would get our monies next Monday, so we resolved to get back to training. We passed through the offices as some players had to take measurements for suits that are coming from BancABC. There was no meeting today (yesterday),” the player said.

Efforts to get a comment from club chairman Peter Dube were fruitless as he said he was in a meeting.

It could not be established how much the players, who receive their salaries from BancABC, are owed by the club in winning bonuses.

Bosso trail Dynamos by two points with five games remaining before the end of the Premier Soccer League season and they play the defending champions in their next match, which could decide the championship, although Dynamos still have a tough match against Monomotapa.
