MIDLANDS BUREAU CHIEF
GWERU-The construction boys, as Sheasham FC is known, have replaced sacked coach John Nyikadzino with Lizwe Sweswe, who resigned from Bulawayo Chiefs.
Club chairman Reginald Chidawanyika confirmed the development in a statement.
“To reinforce Sheasham FC’s premiership journey, the President, Chairman and the Executive Committee has successfully engaged Lizwe Sweswe to take over as the head coach for Sheasham FC with immediate effect taking over from Nyikadzino.
“Mr Sweswe has since signed a two-year contract with the mandate to steer the club to the next level which starts with survival from relegation, rising to make Sheasham F.C a Zimbabwean football giant to reckon with creating a legacy for the future generation to loud on…,” reads part of the statement.
The team is at position 17 on the league log standings after playing 13 games with eight draws, three defeats and two wins.
Chidawanyika said that given Sweswe’s track record ahead of the club’s objectives, he would take the team to greater levels.
“Given his track record, and the club’s objectives, we believe that the prevailing environment will be conducive enough for the next level achievements as it has always been for his predecessor for the journey this far from the first division,” Chidawanyika said.
The ‘Construction Boys’ sacked Nyikadzino on Monday. He joined the club in Division 1 and led the team to the PSL, where they are struggling to shine.
Sweswe served as Norman Mapeza’s assistant coach at FC Platinum and moved to Bulawayo Chiefs.
