Northern Region Division One army side Cranborne Bullets received a major boost this Thursday from two corporates who donated two sets of playing kit and training equipment worth US$$7 100 at a function held at 2 Infantry Brigade in the capital.

The army side is one of two from 2 Brigade Infantry Battalion in Division One, the other is Mukanya Bullets in the Eastern Region Division.

Sponsors FMC’s Ranga Mavunga urged the team to aim higher and have a huge impact in football circles by playing in the topflight league, the PSL, next year.

Copier Parts company representative Gibson Kanengoni said the kit was a token of appreciation for the business partnership which should last for years to come.

Guest of honour Brigadier General Justin Mujaji commended the team for engaging in competitive sport and interacting with the community.

He urged players to take sport seriously as it is now big business and a source of livelihood.

Northern Region Division One chairman Willard Manyengavana said the league is very competitive and well-administered because of the clubs.

Cranborne Bullets who are coached by Nesbert “Yabo” Saruchera won the first match of the 2017 season, but lost 4-nil in the 2nd one due to excitement of winning the first match of the season.
