Ambitious Bulawayo side Bantu Rovers has set out to restructure by splitting the club into two separate entities in a move aimed at ensuring it runs more effectively.
As part of its plans for 2018 and 2019, Tshintsha Guluva decided to segregate their activities to allow for a narrow focus to professional football and development.
Methembe Ndlovu will take charge of the Bantu Youth Development Academy as president and chief executive officer together with Agent Sawu as the head of technical department.
General manager, Wilbert Sibanda and principal partner in the project, Peter Grieve will focus on the professional side.
Ndlovu says the move is aimed at fostering efficiency in development.
The professional side will be a conduit of sending players to sister club Europa PT FC in Gibralta according to Sibanda.
Following the club’s relegation from the topflight it is still unclear if the club will be participating in the lower division next year.
Tshintsha Guluva has to date sent 9 student athletes on full scholarships to United States prep schools since 2008 with 6 signing professional contracts with clubs internationally.
