Premier soccer league returns

By Lawrence Trusida

The Premier Soccer league is set to return next month with the PSL confirming that clubs have already been notified.

According to an official Premier Soccer league communication sent to clubs, the top flight is set to kick off on the 30th of next month.

Local clubs last tested league action in 2019 before Covid-19 struck although domestic football briefly returned this year with the Chibuku Super before sport was halted by the third wave of the pandemic.

Clubs have since resumed training with the Chibuku Super Cup setting things in motion on the 29th of this month.

The League programme is expected to kick off a week after the quarter-finals of the Chibuku Super Cup scheduled for the 23rd of next month.

The league which will run on a home and away basis is expected to break for the festive season holidays on the 17th of December and resume at end of January next year to pave way for the Africa Cup of Nations.

Meanwhile, Former Premier Soccer league Champions, Chicken Inn have set an ambitious target with the technical team confident of completing a league and cup double when football resumes.

Since their 2015 exploits that saw the Gamecocks claiming their maiden top flight trophy, Chicken Inn have gone on a 5-year barren spell, a situation they expect to rectify this season.

Assistant coach Prince Matore said: “As Chicken Inn we have set our targets and to be precise we want to complete a season double this season.” 

Chicken Inn captain, Moses Jackson says his troops are raring to go and eager to leave an indelible mark on the football arena.

“For us, football is our job, so we are ready to do our job well and my fellow players are working hard which is a bonus for us.” 

The Gamecocks retained the bulk of their players who featured in the last league campaign and the Chibuku Super Cup.

They have also added national team trialist, Powell Govere from Northern region division one league side Golden Eagles and have promoted four junior players.
