...PED hails Proton, Surrey for sponsorship
CHIREDZI - Chibi High School was recently crowned the NASH U20 national champions after pounding hosts Hippo Valley High School 2-0 in the finals.
Hippo Valley High School booked a place in the finals after thumbing the Mashonaland defending champions Mavuradonha High School in the semi-finals while Chibi High School knocked out Oriel Boys High School.
The tournament was sponsored by Surrey Meats and Proton Bakery which gave the champions US$800 while the runners up walked away with US$500.
Provincial Education Director (PED) Zedius Chitiga thanked the sponsors of the tournament which he said advanced the cause of education through sports.
"NASH has been holding these U20 soccer tournaments for many years without sponsorship and the coming in of the Surrey Group and Proton Bakery to support this tournament is a most welcome move.
"It demonstrates that these two companies have a great liking for learners because it is from these learners that they will derive their workforce when they are done with their studies. Proton and Surrey has done us proud by supporting us in this field," said Chitiga.sport
