Mawere new Platinum chairman

One of the richest clubs in Zimbabwe, FC Platinum, have a new chairman in George Mawere, who takes over from Nathan Shoko.

Shoko stepped down from the hot-seat over the weekend. He made the announcement during the side’s end-of-year awards ceremony.

Shoko revealed Mawere, formerly his second in command, will take over his duties. Shoko is confident Mawere has the qualities to succeed in the role.

And with the club winning two trophies last term, Shoko is hopeful they challenge for Castle Lager Premier Soccer League honours in the new campaign.

“We did very well last season though we didn’t win the ultimate prize which is the league. Though I am stepping down I know the current management and the whole team has what it takes to lead the team to a much higher position in the league and win more trophies than last season. “I would want to see the team win the league this season. I know they can do it,” concluded Shoko.

FC Platinum finished sixth in the standings in the 2012 season with 45 points from 30 games – 24 points adrift of champions Dynamos.
