Story by Lawrence Trusida, Sports Editor

ARMY side, Black Rhinos have been given a timely boost after receiving financial and material support from a local petroleum company this Wednesday.

The army side received a consignment which includes two playing kits, tracksuits, travel gear, as well as training utensils that include cons, agility poles and ladders from Bell Petroleum.

The petroleum company will also pay winning bonuses for the club in a move that has been welcomed by head coach, Saul Chaminuka whose team is languishing at the bottom of the log.

“Football is money, without the requisite support you won’t win anything. This support is very welcome and it will motivate our team to start winning games because they would want the big winning bonuses,” Chaminuka said.

Guest of Honour, Brigadier General Fidelis Mhonda, who led Cranborne Bullets to promotion into the league as the chairperson, challenged Black Rhinos to rise from the ashes like a phoenix.

“There is no excuse now, I challenge you to start winning matches, Black Rhinos is a flagship team of the ZNA and we must do better. Starting this weekend let’s go and show Dynamos our true colours it is a big game I know but those are the ones we need to make a statement,” said Brigadier General Mhonda said.

Bell Petroleum is determined to continue supporting the club.

“We have signed a one-year partnership but at the end of the season, we will sit down and discuss again. We are determined to continue with this partnership,” said Bell Petroleum Commercial Services Officer, Byron Chinenungu.

The sponsorship package was unveiled at a time when Black Rhinos are preparing to take on Dynamos in a Castle Lager Premier Soccer League encounter set for the National Sports Stadium on Saturday.
