AFTER watching his youthful side at Talen Vision finish an impressive position three last season in the Zifa Southern Region Division One League, club coach Lizwe Sweswe has said his aim this season will be to help his charges further gel before they can dream of earning promotion into the country’s top flight league.

Talen Vision finished the 2022 season as second runners up of a campaign that saw Hwange clinch the championship and ZPC Hwange settle for the second spot.

“Personally, I am someone who gives himself a target during pre-season time. However, I am not bound to do miracles in one season or two and as such I cannot make promises. My target has to tally with the club’s target and budget. It was good to see our boys finish on position three last season and as such we need continuity,” said the soft spoken Sweswe former Tsholotsho FC and FC Platinum coach.

“These are players I would like to see to get well oiled, they need to continue gelling and developing to become players that can withstand the demands of Premier Soccer League football where they will need to stand up and be counted. They should stay in the PSL as opposed to getting promoted this year and get relegated from the premiership the following year.”

At Talen Vision, Sweswe is assisted by his trusted lieutenant Sithethelelwe “Kwinji 15” Sibanda who is also the Mighty Warriors head coach. The duo boasts of a squad with an average age of 21, the eldest player being former How Mine striker Kuda “Mashefu’ Musharu (34).

With Hwange already out of the 2023 Zifa Southern Region jigsaw puzzle, Talen Vision are set to face stiff competition for dominance in the league from ZPC Hwange, Arenel Movers, Casmyn and Mainline among other clubs.

Hwange earned promotion to the PSL after edging Indlovu Iyanyathela 1-0 at the Colliery Stadium in October last year to be crowned Southern Region Division One winners.

Chipangano, whose return to the country’s top flight after they were relegated in 2019 was a question of when not a matter of if, needed only a point in that encounter to seal promotion.

They won the region’s sole ticket to the PSL with two games to spare.

Hwange, who were under the guidance of former Bulawayo City coach Try Ncube, won 27 of their 33 matches to join Simba Bhora (Northern Region), Green Fuel (Eastern Region), and Sheasham (Central Region) in the country’s elite football league.
