Newly-promoted Chisumbanje-based side, Green Fuel head coach Lloyd Mutasa is hoping to bring in fresh blood to revamp his squad for their debut season in the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League.
The Chisumbanje community is anticipating premier league football for the first time after Green Fuel won the sole ticket from the Eastern Region Division One League.
Green Fuel who are under the guidance of former Dynamos coach Lloyd Mutasa are looking to bolster their squad ahead of the 2023 castle lager premier soccer league season.
“We are really looking forward to leave a mark in the league. We have quite a number of players we are looking forward to sign, but for now I cannot mention their names and we will have players that will exit the team due to poor performance. But we are looking forward to having youngsters whom we would want to make their names in the league because they are hungry to play in the top league and we will blend them with some players we have taken abroad and the local and experienced. For now, we want to work ourselves out and compete with teams like Herentals, Yadah who have been in for a long time before we look at other bigger teams,” Mutasa said.
Mutasa is no newcomer to dealing with newly promoted sides after working with Kiglon and Eastern Lions.
Meanwhile, the 2023 Castle Lager Premier Soccer League season kicks off with the Castle Challenge Cup in February.
The match will feature Chibuku Super Cup winners Bulawayo Chiefs and Castle Lager Premier league champions FC Platinum.
