Harare City Netball Club emerged one of the biggest winners at the inaugural Zimbabwe Premier Netball League awards after scooping two of the of the eight prizes that were on offer at a glittering ceremony held in Harare last weekend. The queens took home their first runner up award while shooter Mercy Chinyama took the golden hand awards for being the top goal shooter in the 20 team league. The other club to take home two gongs was Fc Platinum Queens who took home the winners awards as well as the coach of the year prize. City had a nightmarish start to the league last year when they finished ninth at the season opening tournament in Bulawayo before picking themselves up and performed to their usual standards to finish second in the league. Before then the club had not played competitive netball for close to 2 years after the then Super League split and the club opted to remain affiliated to the Zimbabwe Netball Association which unfortunately could not afford a properly structured league. The formation of the Premier Netball League brought much sought competition as the club had to battle for honours against stronger opponents in the form of FC Platinum, ZDF Queens, Black Rhinos, Ngezi Platinum and Green Fuels among others. Speaking after receiving the awards veteran Harare City Queens captain Nomatter Changata said they will try to bring the big one home this year. “We are happy for clinching the second prize but this season we are preparing to work hard and take the first prize,” she said. She praised the team spirit in the camp and hopes that such unity will carry the team. “I want to thank my teammates for working as a team last season so am hoping that this season we will continue with the same spirit and we will win,” she said. The team is expected to regroup this week in preparation for the season opening tournament that is going to be held on the 26th of February.
