Sheasham poised for promotion


AMBITIOUS Gweru-based side, Sheasham are one foot into the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League after opening a five-point lead in the Central Region Division One promotion race, with five games remaining before the curtain comes down on the season.

The Construction Boys, as Sheasham are affectionately known, have spent the better part of this campaign on the summit of the log, with hopes of maintaining their spot in this home stretch.

And as it stands they are the natural favourites to win championship albeit stiff competition from their closest rivals TelOne, who are also hopeful of booking a slot in the topflight league.

The next fixtures will, however, be stern tests for both title hopefuls, with assignments that could be potential banana skins in their path.

On Saturday, Sheasham will travel to Kwekwe for a date with the Godfrey Tamirepi-coached ZPC Munyati, while TelOne will endure a gruelling trip to Matebeleland South to face Filabusi United.
