Tenax target league and cup double


By Sports Reporter

Recently crowned ZIFA eastern region champions Tenax Correctional Services Football Club are targeting an unprecedented league and cup double when they began their defence of the Zimbabwe Consolidated Diamond Company (ZCDC) Diamond Super Cup this Saturday.

Tenax who recently sealed promotion to next season’s Premier Soccer League as eastern region champions are the current holders of the ZCDC Diamond Super Cup beating Green Fuel 1-0 in last year’s final.

The draw for this year’s edition of the ZCDC Diamond Super Cup was held on Thursday at the ZIFA Manicaland offices. Only the top four teams from the just ended ZIFA eastern region division one season take part in the cup tournament.

Tenax will face FC Makaha at Vengere Stadium in Rusape while Buffaloes play Masvingo United at the Chishamiso stadium in Chiredzi.

Both games will be played this Saturday at 3pm.

The winners from the semi finals will meet in the final to be played on Saturday 7 December 2019 at a venue yet to be announced.

Tenax coach Blessing Madombi told Diamond Sport that his team is targeting an unprecedented double after his team won the ZIFA Eastern region title last week.

“We are looking to end the 2019 season in style. We have already made history by sealing promotion to the PSL as ZIFA eastern region champions and winning the Diamond Super Cup will be a perfect end to the season.

Last season Manica Diamonds failed to complete the league and cup double so it will be a special achievement for us to make history as the the first team to do so.

Confidence is very high in our camp and we know our semi final opponents FC Makaha very well so we will be more than prepared for that game.” He said

This years ZCDC Diamond Super Cup is being sponsored to the tune of $140 000.

The winners will pocket $ZWL 40000, runners up $ZWL 30000 while the losing semi finalist will get $ZWL 15000 each.
