HOW MINE have started working on their stadium as the Castle Lager Premiership debutants target using the pitch for Premiership matches.

Club chairman Mlondolozi Nkomo yesterday said work on the pitch had already started, but could give no time frame on when work would be through at the facility. “There are people down there who are a working on the pitch as we speak. I have not gone there, but work is underway.
I have been attending meetings and I cannot give you a time schedule right now on when work will be completed on the stadium,” Nkomo said.
Last month, Nkomo said How Mine
will approach the Bulawayo City Council for a possible venue if they did not
complete renovating the stadium ahead of the new season.
This will bring the number to three teams in
Bulawayo — namely Highlanders, Chicken Inn and the gold miners, after Quelaton were relegated in their maiden season last year.
Last week, How Mine held their
training session at Hamilton High School in the city. How Mine last week appointed former FC Platinum assistant coach Philani Mabhena to head their technical department, but retained the two gaffers who got
them into Premiership —Jeremiah Makote and Isheunesu Chaka.
New faces were seen at the How Mine training camp last week and these
included Quelaton duo of Timothy January and Eddy Nkulungo.
Ocean Mpofu has joined several players who have deserted coal miners Hwange and are currently training with How Mine together with Brighton Dube,
who last year had a brief stint with
Chicken Inn after moving from FC Platinum.
