ZVISHAVANE - FC Platinum have thanked their local rivals Shabanie Mine FC for allowing them to use Maglass Stadium when their own home ground, Mandava Stadium was being renovated.
In a statement released on their official Facebook page, the FC Platinum expressed gratitude to Chinda Boys and assured fans that the two clubs will continue working together.
"This is a special thank you to the Shabanie Mine FC - BVARU BVARU family for hosting us this season. It was truly home away from home. We have forged a good friendship and we will continue working together. The rivalry continues all for the love of the game. Thank you again," the statement reads.
Mandava Stadium underwent a facelift which saw the laying of a new turf and also refurbishment of the drainage system and Shabanie Mine FC.
The Kugona Kunenge Kudada squad showed a home welcoming display when they routed Yadah FC two goals to nil at the newly-refurbished stadium.
Lizwe Sweswe, who was the FC Platinum stand-in coach after Norman Mapeza was invited in Turkey by his former team Galatasary, had told the press on Friday that his team had waited long for the opportunity to play at home before the Yadah FC clash.
"It has been long overdue and we would have wanted to play here since the first day of the season. I am happy that we are back home and we are happy with the turf as it suits our type of play," Sweswe said.sport
