Chidungwe is Chicken Inn Player of the Year
Chicken Inn were one of the standout teams this season, having fought their way to a third place finish on the league table.
They had the chance to play in CAF Confederations Cup, but they did not register due to the financial implications. Over the weekend, the club was shocked by the untimely death of their coach Adam Ndlovu, who was killed in a car accident on Sunday.
Before the shocking news though, the club held its annual awards evening, where they named defender Felix Chidungwe as the Player of the Year.
The other winners were Brian Mbiriri (Most Disciplined Player) and Khulumani Ncube (Most Promising Player). Chairman of the club, Lifa Ncube, said they had to reward the players who did well this past season.
“The whole team did very well but you know the awards will always just reward a few who stood out. We did well and finished on third in the league which was very good,” he said.
“We congratulate the winners and encourage all the others to keep on working as they have always done,” Ncube concluded.
Chicken Inn finished the season behind Highlanders and Dynamos, who were level on points, but DeMbare claimed the title on goal difference.
