SOUTHERN Region Division One side Zimbabwe Saints is today expected to hold its annual general meeting (AGM) to reflect on the team’s state of affairs on and off the field. 

With the Southern Region Division One League having reached its halfway point, Saints interim club chairman, Felix Dzumbunu says the meeting will serve as a platform to communicate with the Saints family.

“Primarily, this meeting is to communicate with our members the current state of affairs of Saints, give them an update of where we are, you know we have been playing football in Division One and we have now reached the halfway mark. 

“We want a platform where we can also interact; we give them feedback and they also give us their ideas, we also want to explain to them some of the challenges we have faced, it is very obvious the team is facing some challenges undoubtedly financial and we want to reach out to them as well and request for everybody’s contribution so that our second half will be better,” he continued.

The club’s return to mainstream football has not gone according to script with the team finding itself languishing at the bottom of the Southern Region Division One log with 11 points from the opening 17 games posting three wins, two draws and 12 defeats. 

The team’s overall performance is a concern to the club’s hierarchy and Dzumbunu says the team’s fortunes are directly linked to the club’s lack of resources.

“When the resources are constrained, it is very difficult to motivate even these youngsters and as such that form in my mind has a direct relationship with some of the inadequate resources. 

“These guys are not motivated as they should be because of the limited resources, so this is  why we are reaching out there, we are aware, we talk to the boys and coaches every day and we are aware of the limitations that are there.”  

Chikwata had to stomach the unceremonious departure of coaches Amini Soma Phiri and Philani Mabhena who reportedly did not turn up for duty earlier in the season forcing the then team manager Godfrey Paradza to fill the void. – @Mandler_Ncube
