Gumare Young Stars Are Nhabe Division One League Champions


Gumare Young Stars from Gumare Stream have been crowned Nhabe Division One League champions after finishing position one at the regional playoffs that were held at Shakawe VDC Grounds last weekend.

The team will represent the region at the Northern Block Playoffs that will be held at Maun Sports Complex and APU Grounds on the weekend of June 29th-30th where they will face Kazungula Young Fighters from Chobe Region, Real Brothers FC from Boteti, Tonota FC from Francistown Region.

Young Stars won the regional playoffs with four points and a goal difference ahead of Ndundu Young Fighters from Shakawe stream which finished on the second position with four points while Maun Terrors secured the last spot with no point.

In an interview, Gumare Young Stars Coach Tapudzani Brown said though they faced very tough competition during the regional playoffs, it was through the plans and tactics they had set for themselves that they managed to win their first game and to draw the second one.

“Going into the playoffs our main intention was to win, we went there knowing that we are going to work together as a team, through the system that we used we were congested in the middle field and it worked for us and we were also using hard working players,” he said.

Brown has acknowledged that competing at the Northern block playoffs is not going to be an easy task for them, adding they aim to put extra effort to ultimately represent Nhabe Region at the First Division League.

From the regional playoffs they have observed that their players had put in a lot of energy and hard work into the play hence they ended up experiencing fatigue during their second game. Brown added that using two teams at the Northern Block Playoffs would allow their players to rest and perform better.

Brown further stated that winning the block playoffs would mark be a historic moment as the first team from Gumare to play at the First Division League, adding that it would also mean an increase in the number of Nhabe teams that play at the First Division.

 “We are very happy for the victory, our supporters really rallied behind us during the regional playoffs, we wish they can do the same during the block playoffs. Support is very important because it boosts the players’ morale,” he said.
