Zimbabwe: Triangle's Battlecry

NEWLY-PROMOTED side Triangle have vowed to make a huge impact in their maiden dance with the Premiership and plans are already in place to upgrade Gibo.

Triangle were crowned champions at the weekend after edging Gaza Gunners 1-0 in a rescheduled match and ended a 42-year wait in the club's history to feature in the Premiership.

Black Rhinos and Tripple B have already sealed their places in the Premiership.

Bantu Rovers could also make a return into the top-flight league if they register a win in their last match of the season.

Triangle, under the guidance of former CAPS United coach Gishon "Gizha" Ntini, sealed the championship with two games remaining.

Triangle chairman, Tichaona Sibanda, said they were ready for the Premiership.

"Everyone is happy about the promotion and it was through hard work from the players, technical team, administration and the fans," said Sibanda.

"We haven't organised the logistics yet but we are promising to make a huge impact in the Premiership.

"A lot of things will be given attention starting with the ground, not that its in bad state but because it's now different from Division One.

"We can host any team in the Premiership at Gibo but obviously we will upgrade it here and there to match the standards of the top-flight league.

"We are looking forward to our first dance in the Premiership and we promise you good football," added Sibanda.
